Kathy Davis ROCKS Week Of Hope — And The Entire Year!

Monday, September 14th, 2009

Our Week Of Hope event inspired people to send tens of thousands of upbeat, positive cards sent across the USA! And it was thanks to amazing, inspiring artists like Kathy Davis that we had such huge response.

Kathy Davis spreads HOPE millions of times a year with her amazing line of greeting cards!

Here are her own inspirational words on Hope and why she’s a Hope Is In The Cards supporter:

“Scatter Joy” is what inspires my work – and my life.

Designing and writing greeting cards is one of the things that gives me a lot of joy, and allows me to share that joy with others.

I believe that inspiring hope is one of the most important jobs that a card can do. We all need to believe in hope …and look for joy… in our daily lives.
What could be more important than sharing that message with others?

The following is a message that I recently wrote for an encouragement card:

“ Hope lives around every corner,
behind every cloud,
inside every failure.

Believe in hope.

Look for it
and you’ll find it
when you need it most.”
