Christmas at Hopes Home SL

Christmas Cheer is in the Air

Making the holidays extra special is one of our favourite ways to make memories with our kids.

Last week our Regina Supportive Living home put on their Santa hats and blasted the Christmas tunes to get into the holiday spirit. But the best part was when Santa sent his Christmas Light Elves to deck out the house with lights and decorations. (A huge thank you to our volunteers who helped make this happen)

There was so much excitement in the air when the kids came home from school to see the front yard all decorated up. But it got even better when it got dark and they could see it all in its full effect. Our kids deserve to have the full Christmas experience and we love to be able to give it to them. But we wouldn’t be able to without the help we receive from friends, family, and generous donors.

Christmas spirit Hopes Home

The Christmas spirit is truly something special. It makes us appreciate what we have, take time for the simple things (like watching lights twinkle), and have a little extra love in our hearts. It’s the season of giving – a special time for us. So if your heart is bursting, and you have a little change to spare, you can donate today by clicking here.

 

That’s why there is no place like Hope.

Be On the Lookout for Hope the Hippo

Hope the Hippo is on the loose going around Regina and Prince Albert spreading Christmas cheer! Have you spotted her?

We are asking for the public’s help in catching Hope. If you see her around your neighborhood, take a picture with her, post it on your social media with the hashtag #HopetheHippo and tag @Hopeshomeinc.

Watch the video below to see Hope the Hippo in action running around the city!

When Hope the Hippo lands on someone’s lawn, they will have the chance to donate to Hope’s Home to get the Hippo moved, and if they donate even more, they can choose where they would like Hope moved next!

We also have an amazing partner for this campaign. A huge thank you to Affinity Credit Union for matching all donations made up to $25,000. We are truly so blessed to have such an amazing corporate partner.

With the impacts of COVID-19 on our operations at Hope’s Home, we are looking forward to spreading some joy through this campaign and raise vital funds for our children. Thank you for your support now and always.

We hope you play along with our Christmas fundraiser. We can’t wait to see your pictures!

Hill JDC West to the Rescue

We’ve had a tough go lately, but thankfully we have amazing supporters to help us out in a time of need.

Between COVID -19 causing daycare closures, the stress of new policies needing to be put into effect, and taking a hit to fundraising opportunities, our organization has been pushed to its limits. But fortunately, we are in a generous and compassionate community, filled with people always willing to help out.

JDC West, a group out of the University of Regina Hill School of Business, has been a long time supporter of Hope’s Home. Each year they plan third party fundraisers for us and donate their time to volunteer.

This year they were unable to put on their Chillin’ for Charity event with COVID-19 restrictions. So instead, they altered their plans and put on a bottle drive for us this summer and are now in the middle of a Virtual Raffle filled with donations from local businesses such as Dandy’s Artesian Ice Cream, Me + You Handmade, Uforia Muse, and so many more!! If you are interested in checking out their raffle packages, check out their Instagram or Facebook page. You can also click this link, to purchase tickets!! All ticket sales go directly back to our organization.

You think that’s a lot of support? It doesn’t stop there. This week, a car drove through the front yard fence at our Regina Supportive Living home. Within minutes of reaching out to JDC, they had rounded up volunteers, a truck, and a plan and were ready to clean up the mess the very next day!!

We honestly can’t say enough good things about the amazing folks over at Hill JDC West. Their kindness and generosity towards Hope’s Home is so appreciated. Once again, a HUGE thank you to everyone over there and for everything you do to help our kiddos.
