Summer of Hope Campaign
reaches 74% of our goal
Our Hearts of Hope campaign is winding down with 74% of our goal being achieved. The goal is to distribute 500 Hearts of Hope to children who are patients at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, one of the leading research hospitals in the nation. We are also donating 10% of every heart ordered for research at the hospital. Your tax deductible purchase of one Hearts of Hope Kit for $10.00 will help us reach our goal by the August 1 deadline. Tell your friends, co-workers and family and together we are hopeful to reach our goals and put smiles on over 500 seriously ill young patients at Children's Hospital.

Send Hope with One Click
and in One Minute
We all know someone who runs into challenging times and would benefit from an encouraging message of hope and love. Now you can just think of someone in such a situation and with a single click and just a minute of your time, you can send a beautiful and inspiring painted Heart of Hope to that person. You create your own personalized message and one of our volunteers will paint a heart and send it along to your recipient within days.
Inspired by our first Hearts of Hope Club at St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia last year, Hearts of Hope is excited to announce similar clubs and partnerships are beginning to appear elsewhere. Motivated by people who were involved in Hearts of Hope Paint with A Purpose Events or other interactions with our foundation, these folks are displaying the true meaning of our "Pay-It-Forward" philosophy.
Immaculate Heart Academy and University of Bridgeport are several locations where Hearts of Hope events will begin in the fall. If you might be interested in starting your own Chapter or Club, it's easy and very rewarding for all involved. Please call 973.244.6900 or email us at email@example.com

Hearts of Hope closing in on 100,000 hearts delivered since inception
What started on the day after 9/11 as a simple way to support the families who lost loved ones and the first responders who were so courageous in their efforts to save lives, is now a full blown Mission of Hope reaching nearly 100,000 victims of illness, tragedy or loss. We are so grateful for the thousands of volunteers who have participated over the years in both small and large ways to help others who needed a ray of hope when all seemed lost. Hearts of Hope has created and distributed painted ceramic hearts to hospitals, cancer centers, burn centers, bereavement centers, the military and virtually any location where people needed a sign of hope from anyone who cared. And we have responded to every single national tragedy since 9/11.
