Our mission for happiness.
The Mission of the Message of Hope Foundation is to deliver a boost of hope and happiness to hospitalized children through “Happy Hope Bag” therapeutic activity kits. Happy Hope Bags provide activities to decrease stress and anxiety associated with hospitalization.
Happy Hope Bags contain age appropriate, hospital approved items including, but not limited to: Play-Doh, coloring books, crayons, plush animals, reading books, playing cards, games, pediatric toothbrush/toothpaste kits, lip balm and a handmade Happy Hope Card made with love by volunteers. It's our way of reminding these brave children that they matter and that their community cares.
Our long term goal is to create a permanent, year round community and corporate driven Happy Hope Factory to serve the needs of our partnering facilities through corporate social engagement while developing an inclusive workforce development program for folks with special needs and older adults.
The Message of Hope Foundation has served over 250,000 hospitalized children since 2013 and is on target to reach 1.5 million children over the next five years.
