It’s not just a day, it’s a movement!
Giving Tuesday was created to unite us all in a day of generosity, to make a difference in the world any way we choose at the start of this busy holiday season…. how can you make a difference this year?
Purpose and Goal?
Hope for Widows Foundation is a certified 501c3 Non Profit Organization that serves to empower, inspire and support the widowed community as best we can. We want to impact the lives of an additional three to five women in 2020 through our Restoring Hope and Peace grant.
Earlier this year, Hope for Widows Foundation was honored to implement our very first financial grant and awarded one widowed mother of two to assist her with home repairs while recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Our hope is to increase the amount and /or number of grants every year. Also, this year we provided significant assistance by supporting hope sister’s through their grief journey such as grief books, workshops, counseling, car repairs, purchasing needed items for their home or their kids. On the lighter side a day at the spa for self-care, journals to help them express their feelings, focusing on themselves to buy them something they like; as they are worthy too….and so much more!

Testimonials: What are Hope Sister’s saying about our sisterhood?
“I started looking for groups online for people like me and came across Hope for Widows. I read the posts daily from other women struggling with the same things I’ve found myself struggling with and realized very quickly that I’m not alone. There are women all over the world, at different stages of their
lives, just trying to live one day at a time with this title that was forced upon us. I’ve witnessed people finding new love, exploring parts of the world by themselves, and learning how to live after death. That gives me hope that someday I will find the same thing. I know I’m stronger than I was 5 years ago and I’ve learned that I can do so much more than I ever thought I could. All because I have to live on,
not only for my 2 boys, but for myself as well. ” Hope Sister, South Hutchinson, KS
“Hope for Widows Foundation has allowed me to find a community of women who understand all the growing pains of being a widow. When your having a bad day you can go on there and reach out to them. I witnessed one a day a lady on the verge of Suicide she posted reaching out. I got to watch all of these hurting women come to her rescue love on her and truly understand how you can’t do life alone. The lady was able to go to a facility and get help because she had our Hope for Widows Foundation Facebook page. She found help and I found hope that I am not alone in this journey anymore. Thank you! ” Hope Sister, Cartersville, GA
“You have helped me open up about my grieving before I found you I would stay to myself I would hardly talk to anyone I didn’t want to smile they have helped me Express my feelings openly.” – Hope Sister, Odessa, Tx
“It has been helping me to feel that I am not going crazy. It has helped to see what the other ladies
are going through. It’s kept me from feeling so all alone. Plus, it is a safe place to be able to share without judgement. Plus, it has helped me to see that there is life after losing your best friend. Everyone treats each other with genuine respect, kindness and love. This has been a place where I feel safe and that I may be able to learn how to move forward and to not be so scared and overwhelmed.” – Hope Sister, Paso Robles, CA
“That although you may not want to.. Or you’ll think it’s not possible. You CAN live! You CAN get through this. One day at a time. And last but not least.. You DON’T have to do it alone!! This an amazing group of woman/foundation that know too well how it feels to go through such suffering. Life really is a beautiful thing. EVERY woman deserves to feel cared for. Like this group has been there for me when I needed understanding. I’ll be there with an open ear for anyone that needs that same understanding.”- Hope Sister, Fenton, Missouri
