Mothers In Crisis is Celebrating 30 Years of Service in April 2021 and we are excited about being the founders and administrators of the National Month of Hope through the National Day Calendar. The holiday was created with the expectation that things can change for the better.
Five Tenets of Hope Campaign:
HOPE stands for Helping Others Practice Empowerment
Hope for self
Hope for the family
Hope for/within the community
Hope for the nation and world
The idea is to apply these tenets throughout the entire year in one’s daily life but to pay special homage to hope during April. People are encouraged to demonstrate “hope in action”, take “hope breaks” and make “hope connections.”
Mothers In Crisis gives out HOPEE (Helping Others Practice Enduring Empowerment) Awards during April National Month of Hope. HOPEE awards are presented to those who exemplify helping others to practice enduring empowerment while spreading hope in the family, church, community, marketplace, nation and world. The Whole Hope Campaign is needed now more than ever. With the Coronavirus pandemic we are encouraging everyone to stay safe, keep the faith, and have hope. To hear podcasts with some of the HOPEE Awardees please visit Think Hope Podcast www.blogtalkradio.com/thinkhope.
The inaugural year of April National Month of Hope was 2018 and we kicked it off with a public awareness campaign that included a national radio tour. In 2019 Mothers In Crisis had major hope celebration and introduced the HOPEE (Helping Others Practice Enduring Empowerment) Awards. In 2020 Mothers In Crisis implemented the Hope for Health Campaign and 2021 the Balls for Hope Campaign.
HOPE stands for (Helping Others Practice Empowerment). In April 2016 in honor of Mothers In Crisis 25th anniversary, MIC received proclamations from the City and County designating every Friday as Hope Universe Day. On Hope Fridays, share hope and help with those in need. Mothers In Crisis applied for and received the National Day Calendar designation of April as the National Month of Hope beginning in April 2018. As a part of the HOPE Movement Mothers In Crisis rolled out the HOPE Not Hate Campaign encouraging everyone to spread messages of Hope Not Hate.
Mothers In Crisis is committed to spreading hope globally including this missions trip to Cote D’Ivoire West Africa where we shared hope in the cocoa farms:
