What?

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. Our goal is to impact the lives of an additional five to ten widowed women in 2021 through our Restoring Hope and Peace Grant.

Why?

 Hope for Widows Foundation was honored to implement our very first financial grant in 2019 and awarded one widowed mother of two to assist her with home repairs while diagnosed with breast cancer.  In 2020, Hope For Widows Foundation increased the financial assistance of two widows who were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our hope is to increase the amount and /or the number of grants every year. Review the historical information of the Restoring Hope and Peace Grant – here.

Also, throughout the year we impacted widows directly in our community through their grief journey such as grief books, workshops, Hope Sister sunshine boxes to lift their spirits, counseling, car repairs, purchasing needed items for their home, or their kids. On the lighter side, we arranged a day at the spa, journals to help them express their feelings, buying a new outfit, and more; to assist them to focus on their self-care.

Written 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
