Dear Caring Friend,
Starting February 14th, your help is needed! The impact of providing care takes a toll on the mind, body, and spiritual wellness of the person providing that care; caring for someone at the most vulnerable times of their lives is not easy. Society and the health care industry has and continues to call these ‘ANGELS from HEAVEN’, CAREGIVERS.
Caregiving has reached crisis mode as the aged population quickly grows, leaving providers, families, and communities scrambling to ensure needs are met – often with minimal financial resources. Hope Grows’ services are more important to our community than ever before, and I am pleased to share with you that Hope Grows is an organization caregivers can trust and turn to at any point in their journey, regardless of their financial means.
Will you join us from February 14-March 31, 2020, in honoring six different family caregivers through our Dear Caring Friend Tribute. This fun new spin we’re putting to this campaign is exciting. You may remember last year’s “Dear Caring Friend” letter writing campaign. Well, this year, we have changed the campaign to a tribute for family caregivers.
This new approach gives us the chance to create awareness and advocacy with our friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers. Spreading the word means more caregivers can get the help and support they need through our Hope Grows programs and services.
Each week, starting on Valentine’s Day, we will be honoring a family caregiver by sharing their story through emails and social media. We are asking our supporters to forward, share, like, and support these individuals and support the work that Hope Grows does. The tribute will end as we celebrate these individuals at the Hope Grows Iris Respite House Renovation Showcase on April 8, 2020.
