Wall of Hope In Battery Park Unites People In HOPE

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

What a wonderful, thought-provoking, inspiring day. There was our Wall of Hope, with the Statue of Liberty right behind it. People streamed on and off the Ferries to Ellis Island. HOPE found its way to people of every color, age, race, nationality, and more. So many walked by our wall, stopped, and asked what kind of HOPE we were talking about. We simply said “Every Kind Of Hope. Just share it, right now, right here, for free. Today HOPE is on us.” People then took cards and mailed them all over the world. It was so busy that we barely even got the Wall covered with cards to start with – they just flew off! The simple act of connecting and sharing uplifting messages was a beacon. Hey, even Spiderman made a visit! We’ll post some more pictures and stories soon. But here are a few….

At the National Stationery Show, the Wall of Hope made an appearance — much to the delight of hundreds of retailers. Cards were donated by dozens of companies and visitors to the Wall could pick any card they wanted. If they signed the card and addressed it right then and there, we mailed it for free! We’d like to take the wall across America — want to help sponsor it? Contact us at info@HopeIsInTheCards.org.

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!
