They can also decide they aren't an "Event" Chapter and instead use funds raised to purchase totes and supplies for the POINT HOPE TOTES OF HOPE FOR TEENS or for the junior or younger version of that project for kids in foster care.
Perhaps a local Points of Hope Chapter will decide to be a sewing circle or a knitting group that will make garments, blankets, hats for children or BEANIES 4 BABIES for Point Hope Ghana--that chapter could still be raising funds to cover the expense for supplies and shipping.
Another Points of Hope Chapter may decide their interest is actually in providing support to the work of Point Hope Ghana. They want to raise enough money to send a child to school, provide fresh water, teach a family how to raise nutritious food and save nutrients while cooking, or help with skills training to give someone a sustainable future.
Points of Hope Chapters
Delilah often has people contact her asking how they might volunteer or what they can do to help Point Hope to make a difference in their world. Obviously, cash donations are a huge part of what makes Point Hope a viable non-profit. Sometimes, however, persons want to do something more than just donate money; they want to give of themselves; their time and their talents. Establishing "Points of Hope" across the nation will give them the chance to help Point Hope and to find local opportunities to serve and to give back to their own communities.
We want to encourage mentoring, taking quality time to show foster kids that there are other options, different opportunities and interests beyond the narrow world that they have been exposed to; to broaden their focus and worldviews; to make a difference in the lives of children--young people who are quite often forgotten voices, often quite simply forgotten, period.
The staff of Point Hope is ready to help you get going with YOUR Points of Hope Chapter! Please contact us for further information at OnePerson@PointHope.org.
