We are excited to announce that during our Giving HOPE campaign, we raised $338 for HOPE International! Since we were giving a dollar per new like, this means that we received 338 new likes on Facebook. Besides expanding our social media reach, we were able to spread awareness for a great organization.
HOPE International was founded in 1997 by Jeff Rutt of Keystone. The organization addresses the employment gap faced by the world’s poor through microfinance.
Microfinance is the concept of providing small loans and savings services to entrepreneurs in developing countries. HOPE reaches over 400,000 people and gives them the opportunities to start or expand businesses and break free from poverty.
If you would like to get more involved with HOPE, be sure to attend A Night of HOPE. This event takes place tonight from 6 to 9 p.m. at Pine Crest Country Club, 101 Country Club Drive, Lansdale, PA 19446.
During A Night of HOPE, you can hear from Jamie Moyer, a Major League baseball star and co-founder of The Moyer Foundation for distressed children. Additionally, you can meet Peter Greer, CEO of HOPE International.
So, whether you are a first time home buyer in Lancaster or owner of a York new home, you can give hope! For more information, just go to www.hopeinternational.org.
