Welcome! It’s been an exciting month for the Spread Hope Project. First off, if you’re reading this, the website is live, so that’s big news. We’re also now on Instagram, where you can see all of the neighborhoods, towns, cities, and sites we’re visiting to Spread Hope, the people we’ve met along the way, and all the fun projects we’re working on in between. While we don’t have a twitter account just yet, you can follow the hashtag #SpreadHopeProject, as well as our founder, Maya Northen.
In addition to our website and social media, we’ve begun the process of designing customized Hope shirts and merchandise, which will be available for purchase, with a portion of the proceeds being donated to mental health, suicide prevention, and chronic illness nonprofits. We’ll be posting some photos of samples soon, and of course are always open to special requests .
And that’s where you come in! Our mission is to Spread Hope, plain and simple. That means reaching out to and interacting with as many people as possible. We want to know where you think we should head next. Maybe that’s your town or city. Maybe that’s a place nearby where you live or work or travel. Maybe it’s your school or university. Or maybe you just want to join in the spreading of hope and think your town or school or local business would be the perfect place to do so. Whatever it is, we want to know. So reach out by email or Instagram, or tweet at #SpreadHopeProject. We can’t wait to hear from you!
