Bott Radio Network Associate of Oklahoma Pro-Life Media Coalition
Bott Radio Network has been a member of the Oklahoma Pro-Life Media Coalition since its inception in the winter of 2003. The purpose of this Coalition is to bring the Pro-Life issue from the background to the foreground giving people all over Oklahoma tangible things to do to help.
Since the battle for Life has been raging for over 30 years, people have become weary. Many people have stopped fighting due to the fact that the battle seems insurmountable.
What kind of things can people do to help win the fight for life in Oklahoma? They can buy a “Choose Life” license plate. The money paid for the plate goes into a trust which will be distributed annually to various pregnancy resource centers around the state. The major criterion for determining which centers qualify is how each center advises its clients. The centers that advise their clients about adoption will be the centers that are eligible to receive a portion of the money. License plates can be purchased at any tag agency or by going to http://www.okchoose-life.org. Twenty dollars of the purchase of each plate goes into the trust. Support the local pregnancy resource center near you. Call and ask them what they need. Many times these centers work to provide logistical assistance as well as advise the client of her options. If you sew, making baby blankets, layettes, maternity clothes, and so forth is very helpful for each center.
Ask the different hospitals in the area if you can make blankets to be given to each new mom. A brand new home made blanket for the brand new baby is a wonderful gift especially for the unwed, ill-prepared mother.
Listen to Bott Radio Network on 800 AM, 95.1 FM or 95.5 FM to hear the “I’m Pro-Life” campaign. This started at the beginning of the year; Pro-Life statements made by ordinary citizens around the state of Oklahoma were aired. Starting in March, Bott Radio Network has been airing Pro-Life statements made by a number of Oklahoma Legislators. Keep listening to hear what is added to the “I’m Pro-Life” campaign.
For other ideas of what can be done, call (405) 787-7744.
KQCV Good Samaritan Award
KQCV offers the community a chance to recognize that “go-getter” at their church by awarding the KQCV Good Samaritan Award. Established in 1999, KQCV listeners are encouraged to write or fax nominations of those at their church who are always involved in projects. Those who teach, drive the bus, chair the committees, rock the babies, clean up after dinners and the million and one other things that the church needs.
This is not something KQCV announces on the air. This is strictly a community award, usually a surprise between the nominee and the individual or group that nominates them. Winners of the KQCV Good Samaritan Award receive a plaque stating they have won the award along with a short paragraph explaining their special qualities. KQCV sends the plaque to the recipient signed by the Station Manager and Operations Manager, plus we put a duplicate plaque on the wall at the station’s studios in Oklahoma City.
The KQCV Good Samaritan Award is very popular. It enables us to learn of those good souls all around the state and recognize them for their servant hearts and unsung work that makes the church function.
To nominate an extraordinary individual or group for this award, write to KQCV Good Samaritan Award, 1919 North Broadway, Oklahoma City, OK 73103 or fax your request to 405-521-1391.
