Hope Matters was founded on the desire to make a difference in hurting lives worldwide.
That motivation began with our Little Pink Book™ series. From the first book to bless a friend in need, a channel of hope was born. No matter how old you are, coping with cancer, deployment to war, Alzheimer’s disease or other difficulties, ”the child within” is impacted. Through whimsical stick-characters, unpretentious storylines and energetic presentations, we’re passionate about making a difference. Sharing hope is our first concern–because hope matters!
