Going to Africa, & We Need Your Help

It’s been a busy couple of weeks as we get ready for our trip to Africa. We leave a week from today! Exciting stuff. We have our Hope shirts all packed and ready to go, and are looking forward to exploring Kenya and Tanzania with them. While we’re not sure of the wifi/internet access we’ll have there, we hope to upload photos to Instagram throughout the trip when we can.   Our trip destinations include:

  • Nairobi (and a chance to visit the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust – they’re into spreading hope too, to orphaned baby elephants and rhinos.
  • The Masai, including a hot air balloon ride
  • The Serengeti
  • Ngorogoro Crater

While we’re unbelievably excited to be Spreading Hope over in Africa, we could use some help keeping the momentum going here. That’s where you all come in. While we’re traveling, we’re asking a big favor of those friends who are … well, anywhere, really. Take photos throughout your neighborhoods, on your travels – day trips, vacations, family reunions, it all counts – post on Instagram, and hashtag #spreadhopeproject. If you want to create some homemade swag, even better! Make a Spread Hope Project sign or wear some purple (the color scheme of SHP) or whatever else you feel like doing.  Don’t forget to add your destination in your post too.

Have questions about the Spread Hope Project, or interested to learn more ways to participate? Let us know!  The more people involved, the more people we can reach and the more hope we spread.

      Great! Our focus is the general idea of spreading hope around the world! While we focus on hope for those with illness, really, we just want to spread hope to as many places and people as we can! Since you have an instagram account, let’s connect, as much of our work is photo based. We encourage people to take photos and tag them with #spreadhopeproject as well as their destination. So you can use tags such as #spreadhopetanzania #spreadhopeEastAfrica etc. For this trip, we’re using #SpreadHopeAfrica #SpreadHopeTanzania and #SpreadHopeKenya (may add East Africa though!).
