April National Month of Hope 2020 is going to be powerful! We are continuing to give out HOPEE (Helping Others Practice Enduring Empowerment) Awards. 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 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.
Mothers In Crisis was instrumental in founding the month of April as 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 we had a major hope celebration and introduced the HOPEE (Helping Others Practice Enduring Empowerment) Awards.
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:
