It’s science! Giving back to your community shapes you into the best version of yourself.
Studies have shown volunteering and giving back to a cause you are passionate about releases endorphins, giving you the same happy feeling as that first sip of coffee, eating your favorite sweet, or a good workout.
Yet, the impact of losing yourself in the service of others doesn’t stop there. It can help you discover new passions, connect with like-minded people and empower you to move in the direction of your dreams… all while giving HOPE to others.
We are a small organization with a large footprint, thanks to our volunteers! In 2019, more than 1,129 volunteers nationwide gave nearly 4,700 hours of their time to sharing HOPE’s mission in their community.
The best gift you can give someone is HOPE; the second is your time. Give both these gifts to veterans and military families in your community by signing up to volunteer at an event near you: Volunteer Hub.
CIRCLE OF HOPE
For the same price you spend each month on coffee or to eat out for lunch, you can make a difference in the lives of veterans and military families by joining our monthly giving program, Circle of Hope.
Here’s how your monthly gift can forever restore HOPE:
$22 per month: Family Support. Provide travel assistance for a caregiver and family visiting a wounded service member.
$48 per month: Education. Cover books and supplies for a Spouse/Caregiver Scholarship recipient.
$75 per month: Therapeutic & Camaraderie Building Events. Sponsor a wounded service member’s participation in a Hope & Morale Retreat or an Outdoor Adventures event.
$100 per month: Financial Assistance. Prevent homelessness for a military family facing a service-related income gap.
$250 per month: Restore Hope. Help grant a life-changing Warrior’s Wish to a combat-wounded veteran’s family.
Helen Keller once said, “The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves.”
Take the first step to becoming a happier you by losing yourself in service. Support the warrior community over the next 365 days + 1 extra day to share kindness (thank you, leap year) by joining our HOPE family.
