Our family had a great time last Sunday running a table for AHOPE for Children at the Nuart Block Party. The event was sponsored by the Nuart, a Christian ministry, and featured seven bands, food, and fun for the kids. Marissa, our AHOPE Store Manager and all-round Development volunteer came from Boise with her cute kids which made it even more fun. Some local friends joined us to help out as well.
We were very encouraged by the the number of t-shirts we sold and the general interest in AHOPE. Mimi, who doesn’t have a shy bone in her body, managed to get the guys from three of the bands to wear AHOPE shirts while performing. Darren from Rocks Will Cry even promoted AHOPE from the stage and encouraged fans to come buy shirts. The Afters, who headlined the event, took photos with Mimi and the shirts.
In honor of the event, I am hosting a raffle for an AHOPE t-shirt on my blog. Donations, made by clicking on the PayPal button, go directly into the AHOPE store account and give you a chance to win a shirt. Every dollar you donate will count as an individual raffle ticket.
You can see that the crowd loved our shirts!
We plan to launch AHOPE hoodies and some other great items in the next two weeks. I’ll keep you all posted.
In family news, Honeybee continues to adjust to her new life. She is full of affection and fun. There are challenges in learning how to live in a family and we still have some tears, especially over being required to help clean up the house, but overall, she is doing great.
Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to enter the raffle (or buy shirts on our site)! One dollar can make a difference in the life of a child.
