We are launching a fundraising and awareness campaign that will run from Memorial Day through July 4th or throughout the summer. We're hoping to create a marketing/communications plan to help make this campaign go viral through email, facebook, TikTok, instagram, twitter, etc. Our campaign is called Jump Rope for Hope Loves Company and our goal is to get thousands of people to record themselves jump roping for hope, post online, tag to nominate friends, and make a small donation.
This project is important because we believe that with your help, we can make this campaign go viral and inspire thousands to post a quick video or make a $5 donation, which when all put together, will raise thousands of dollars and spread awareness for our free programs for children and young adults who have or had a loved one battling ALS.
Hope Loves Company Inc. is the only nonprofit organization in the United States with the mission of providing educational and emotional support to the children and young adults who had or have a loved one battling ALS.
Founder, Jodi O'Donnell-Ames, was inspired to create Hope Loves Company when she realized the lack of resources available to her children, all of whom lost a parent to ALS. When her children reached college age, she put her dreams into action and created the first and only organization with the unique and specific mission to support children and young adults who have been affected by ALS. Hope Loves Company offers various programs and services, such as Camp HLC(r), Hugs of Hope Care Packages, Family Fun Days, and other events.
HLC has hosted 23 successful camps across the nation, free of charge. Camp activities include hiking, water activities, zip lining, crafting, and more! There are also counselors available for campers who wish to seek support. We have Camp HLC(r) in NJ, MA, FL, IN, IL, and CA. HLC also delivers free Hug of Hope care packages, which include a children's book, stuffed animal, Camp HLC(r) T-shirt, a note from the HLC team, and more. We have a Young Ambassador program as well the Susan B. Anderson Scholarship. We keep in contact with our HLC families year round via phone, email, and social media and we always make sure to send our campers a birthday card!
