10 Bits Of Hope A Day?

It was incredibly uplifting, and humbling.

So, this week I’m going to try to put my feelings into action and thank these 70 people. In writing.

I’ll let you know how it goes….

Share a HOPE story, we’ll share some HOPE cards.

How about applying your handwriting to a HOPE card?!

Practice your penmanship and write the word HOPE on the back of anything you mail — a card, letter, even a bill.
