HOPE IN ACTION 2020 - present
As an ongoing way to practice HOPE in Action, we use our Give Hope Fund for the following:
- provide each EVA team member a limited amount of paid time per month to pursue an act of "Giving Hope" in their community or to causes close to their hearts
- provide paid time for pro-bono administrative service to Freedom Church
- provide social media support to Soapstone Church, an enclave of African-American culture and history established in 1865 by freed slaves. Find them on Instagram and Facebook.
- handle and update Today's Name of God on Instagram and Facebook, which provides 365 unique names of God per year.
HOPE IN ACTION 2019
In 2019, we worked on a year-long project that corresponds to our Lasting Hope division of HOPE Unlimited. We created 365 posts to "Today's Name of God," a non-denominational attempt to celebrate up to 365 unique names and character traits of God, nearly daily, through social media and a Google calendar. We continue to update this feed so the names appear daily on Instagram and Facebook.

Our thanks to those who participated in Hope in Action Q2, submitting tips to share on our social media networks. With the tips we received, added to tips we already have, we essentially reached our goal of 25 tips. These have been worked into our recurring library of social media posts. You can see all the tips here. This HIA project will remain an ongoing initiative.
HOPE IN ACTION 2018 Q3 Report
THANK YOU so much for your collective contributions to the Sole Hope Shoe party. We are delighted to share that denim templates for 37 pairs of shoes were prepared and sent to the NPO and ultimately will end up in Uganda where shoe makers will assemble the shoes and they will be distributed to toddlers to protect their feet from jiggers. We completed 7 more kits than the original goal of 30 thanks to your provision of denim, funding, and working hands!

HOPE INACTION 2018 Q4
Rest and Reflect. We intentionally took a break from planning/executing any projects. Rest is important, too.
