Hugs and Hope

Posted on Updated on

Back in June of 2004 Mattie was a featured child with Hugs and Hope. They are an amazing group of people. They have sent us happy mail, Christmas gifts, support, and just a general feeling of not being alone. If you get a chance drop by the site and send some happy mail!

Mission Statement

The Hugs and Hope Club for Sick Kids is a ministry devoted to encouraging children battling critical illness and their families.

*The HUGS and HOPE Club provides the rare gift of friendship:  a listening ear, a sympathetic heart.*

Our mission is to share God’s love and provide friendship and support to families of sick children who live within the United States by sending happy mail and offering various activities to children between the ages of 2 and 17.

We do this through the following projects and programs:

* Mailing cheery cards (a.k.a. “happy mail”)

* Providing balloon bouquets to hospitalized children

* Granting children’s wishes

* Providing Christmas gifts through our Elf Project

* Assigning a  personal “parent pal” who encourages, cheers, and supports the family in crisis.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.  For just as the sufferings of Christ are ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ.”        (II Corinthians 1: 3-5)
