Holiday Hope

Friends, we must spend these last few months of 2020 making sure our mission is funded!

Foster children in care who want to be adopted need the help of our videos to introduce to them to prospective parents. Please help Grant them Hope for Holidays! Whether Thanksgiving, Hanukah, Christmas, Kwanza or a whole lot of hope for the New Year, all foster children deserve to have hope for happy, healthy, loving holidays, every holiday, with their forever family!

$100,000 year-end goal

Thanks to YOU ~ we are so close!

$1,000 will help one foster child in either Michigan, Ohio or Mississippi. Grant Me Hope’s professionally done personalized videos of foster children cost between $800 and $900 to tape, edit and produce. The remainder helps get that video online and out to our audience. Follow along as we raise money for the remainder of the year to help foster children find forever homes before they age out of the foster care system facing homelessness! This total reflects the success of our 5th Anniversary Family FunFest held Sept. 26.

Item #2 – Stephenson Red

About these paintings: (Items 2, 3 and 4) Artist Linda Stephenson was born and raised in Michigan. She moved to California in the 1980s. A self-taught artist, Stephenson was drawn to flowers and painted an incredible variety of intricate blooms and detailed garden scenes. Many of her paintings were completed while living in California and Oregon. After more than 50 years of giving more color to the world, Stephenson died in 2019. Her family generously donated two dozen framed paintings to Grand Me Hope. We are grateful for this incredible donation and we are glad to be able to share these pieces with you.
