HOPE gets its first retailer — totally SWEET!

Friday, May 8th, 2009

I just met with COOKIES FROM HOME, a great shop in Tempe. The owners saw our HOPE cards at the giant breakfast for the Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center (we have away almost 4,000 cards). She’s going to be our first official HOPE WEEK retailer! Watch for details when she kicks it off in June. Until then, buy her awesome cookies!

We built a WALL OF HOPE!

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

Hey HOPE folks, we had a really great event a couple of days ago. We came up with a cool idea — we built a giant wall with the word HOPE on it, covered it in cool cards from American Greetings, Hallmark and Leanin’ Tree (THANKS for the donations folks!) and set up in a community festival. BAMM!! In 3 hours, hundreds of people picked cards off the wall and sent them, leaving a giant message of HOPE behind. We’re going to try it all over the USA now!
