Is it really already the end of May?!

Wow! I guess time flies when you're having fun, right? So... Emily and I are at a trade show in St. Charles, IL right now and we've had 21 people sign up to take the challenge at the show. I even printed out our groovy map so that our new friends could help us reach our goal of all 50 states. So far, Rose (from the booth next door) has added Wyoming and Minnesota to our growing list. Thanks, Rose!

Also, I got an awesome email from a hope note writer in GA... I couldn't say it better myself: "Thank you for encouraging me to encourage others. By giving, I received." (also... she added 2 states to our list! woo hoo!)

Hearing from you all is definitely encouraging, so keep up the good work! You all have sent hope to 43 states and almost 700 people!! We're getting closer, but we've still got a long way to go... tell your friends, family, the guy next door... spread the word! And thanks for being the light in our dark world.

another fabulous friday!

Hello my hopeful friends! Here's the scoop... 147 of you have committed to create some hope by sending FREE gratefulimages cards.

That means that 588 people out there are going to get a happy surprise in their mailbox. In between bills and junk mail they'll get a fantastic note from one of you. How cool is that!

Together, we've reached 38 states, one US territory and 8 foreign countries. Woo HOO!

Here's the thing... we really really want to reach 2000 people. That would just be AMAZING. So, we need your help. Spread the word about the create hope challenge! Tell your friends and family... tell the person in front of you in the grocery store line, tell whoever you want! Please help us get the word out.
