Happy Birthday, People Hope!
As we celebrate our 3rd Birthday, it's only fitting that we honor the people that have made these years so special - our courageous global community, which we affectionately refer to as the People Hope Tribe!
This year we surprised one member of our Tribe with a box full of gifts in honor of our big day! It took months of snooping, planning, and coordinating with her mom and husband, but our team was able to surprise Lacey with a little birthday magic...and we filmed the whole thing so that you could be part of the surprise, too!
What was inside Lacey's box?
Her gift was filled with everything we know she loves, from books to People Hope t-shirts, hand-sewn blankies for Jaxon, and a gift card for a date night with Jace. There were chocolates and dog treats and jewelry, oh my!
But it was thanks to our incredible sponsors that we were able to go above & beyond for Lacey!
When Five Watt Coffee caught wind that Lacey's a little coffee-obsessed, they gave us three bags of their premium coffee beans to send her way! Not only are they the best roasters, they're the best people, too.
Because photos are so important to Lacey, James and Katie Stokes sent over a gift certificate for a family lifestyle portrait session!
One of our incredible partners, River Valley Church, wanted to get in on the fun, too, and they sent along t-shirts, mugs, and an album of their music!
Mary ellen King collaborated with our very own Anna King Kowlessar, and this mother-daughter duo dreamed up something beautiful! Anna wrote a prayer based off of Lacey's favorite Bible verses, and Mary designed, hand-lettered, and framed a large statement piece of art for Lacey's home.
The minute that Bella Zenn Salon heard we were surprising Lacey, they jumped on board to give her a gift certificate for a hair cut and color to spoil this amazing mama! Ladies, you know it doesn't get better than that!
