“I believe every human being is important, not just for themselves, but to make a difference in the world. Through acts of goodness, kindness, and Tsdaka (Yiddish for “Charity”), we can change the world for the better.” – Ken Cohen
Simple everyday actions — kind words, an act of friendship, recycling, or volunteering — help to build a strong community where everyone, regardless of ability, is included. With your help, Hampton Roads can be that community.
Here are some simple ways you can make a big impact on the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in our community:
- You can contribute to Hope House and recycle your old cell phones in an environmentally conscience way by printing out this free mailing label. For every phone received, whether it works or not, a donation is made to Hope House. It’s simple, it’s easy, GO GREEN!
- You can use www.goodsearch.com, which donates money to Hope House every time you use it to search the Web. It’s powered by Yahoo.com, so you get proven, high-quality search results. Just enter Hope House as the charity you want to support, and you’ll be helping us every time you use goodsearch.com. So why not make it your home page?
- You can shop at the Hope House Thrift Shop,
or you can shop online for Stockley Gardens Festival t-shirts, the Hope House CD, and other merchandise.
- You can volunteer to help out at our events, or to spend time with
the people we support.
- You can attend our community fundraising events, such as the Spring Stockley Gardens Arts Festival or Fall Stockley Gardens Arts Festival.
You can call it choice, you can call it change; we call it responsible citizenship.
