Check out the new AHOPE bracelets for sale! For a $10 donation you can buy a stainless steel bracelet that features the AHOPE logo, the first name of a child living at AHOPE, and the Amharic word for "hope".
Each bracelet serves as a reminder of a special child at AHOPE and will surely raise awareness about HIV+ orphans around the world.
To order, email Marissa at firstname.lastname@example.org with the quantity desired and your mailing address. (She will respond with an invoice via paypal. You can also let her know if you'd prefer to pay by check.) Shipping and handling is $2.50 for up to 3 bracelets in one package. (Thank you to Lisa for posting about this originally and letting me copy her!)
I need to tell you that when I visited AHOPE back in February 2006, it was an obscure place filled with children who seemed to have little hope for a future, much less a family. Today, just two and a half years later, this place on the other side of the world is gaining exposure, dozens and dozens of children are being adopted, and the story of the orphan living with HIV is finally being told. These kids are finally seeing that they matter.
Won't you consider being a part of this story? Order a bracelet (or two!) today!
