Six months ago marked the launch of the Get Hope. Give Hope. campaign with our friends Ben Higgins, The Humanity & Hope United Foundation, and of course, Water for Good. Since that time, we have been absolutely blown away by the generosity and compassion shown by thousands of people all over the world. Through the purchase of a simple bracelet, lives are being changed from Honduras to Central Africa and back!
Here are a few updates from the campaign so far:
February 2016: The Humanity & Hope United Foundation (H&H) is able to hire its 3rd full-time employee in Honduras, Bessy Valladares. Bessy launches a new program for girls to attend secondary school for the first time.
March 2016: 12 women are employed to work on a new sheep farm in the Honduran village of Remolino.
April 2016: H&H is able to purchase a brand new truck. The vehicle is already involved in 7 different micro-enterprises built around various farming projects.
June 2016: $50,000 have now been raised for H&H!
July 2016: 6,650 "hope" bands have been sold so far. 127 people in the Central African Republic will now have 1 entire year's worth of clean water.
Stay tuned for future updates and some exciting new ways to support the campaign. If you haven't purchased your own Get Hope. Give Hope.
