HOPE IN ACTION - ONGOING
From 2020 on, we have been practicing ongoing ways to demonstrate HOPE in Action. A portion of our income is deferred to a Give Hope Fund, and some clients choose to defer part of their purchase toward it. Our Give HOPE Fund and other volunteer efforts give us the opportunity to provide hope through
- occasional paid time for our team to pursue an act of "Giving Hope" for their community or causes close to their hearts
- 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.
- "Blessings of HOPE" cards/bookmarks/gifts left in surprise places for people to discover and either keep or pass along
- Whatever else we are led to do to give back!
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. See our page with more details about how to find these resources FREE.

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!

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