The Hope train is continuing down the tracks ALL YEAR LONG as Mothers In Crisis is promoting the public awareness of hope through our 10,000 Balls for Hope Campaign that not only includes giving out stress balls and other gifts during key holidays of the year as we started with Mother’s Day, but also an Essay Contest with cash prizes given to the winners during APRIL National Month of Hope 2022! It’s so exciting 🤩 to advocate for Hope!
Mothers In Crisis is the founder and administrator of the National Month of Hope through the National Day Calendar. The inaugural year was 2018 and we kicked it off with a public awareness campaign that included a national radio tour. In 2019 Mothers In Crisis introduced the HOPEE Awards. HOPEE stands for Helping Others Practice Enduring Empowerment while spreading hope in the family, church, school, community, marketplace, nation, and world. In April 2020 Mothers In Crisis implemented the Hope for Health Campaign food distribution program and in 2021 the Balls for Hope Campaign, distributing hope stress balls to essential workers and others in need of hope.
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.”
