Our Q4 Hope In Action Initiative is:
For three quarters in 2018, HOPE Unlimited has sponsored a Hope In Action project. We're delighted at the success of the projects this year, and you can find details below.
For Q4, I've decided to take a different approach and declare a quarter of "Inaction." The word inaction means "a lack of action where some is expected or appropriate." The trend with HIA was to pick a project per quarter that could involve our community near and far in something meaningful, and related in some way to vocational growth or sustenance. We have done that, and I think it is equally valuable to take time to reflect and rest on certain initiatives. Taking breaks intentionally is a wise "action" in and of itself, so I invite you to do the same from time to time in a meaningful way. THANK YOU to those who participated in our projects this year!
HOPE IN ACTION 2018 Q1 Report
Our thanks to those who participated in Hope in Action Q1, coloring encouragement cards for military wives. Approximately 20 cards were included in planners being given to incoming volunteers on the board of Protestant Women of the Chapel.
HOPE IN ACTION 2018 Q2 Report
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.
Suggested initiatives should tie in with one of our Breath of Hope Collective theme areas:
- Habits & Values
- Organization & Time Management
- People skills & Emotional Intelligence
- Email & Communication skills.
Thus, it is likely that initiatives related to helping others in their professional lives, or that tie in with administrative service, will be considered with more priority than other causes. Thank you!
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!
