Symbols of hope change lives. They stand at the head of world-altering movements. They help people face the days that threaten to be too painful for facing.
The hope-opotamus is a symbol of hope, a little stuffed animal of any colour that we can give away as a symbol of hope. And that is why we are asking you to bring a hippo to Hope House.
We are having an open house on November 24, 4:00 to 7:00. We’ll be showcasing our important work. We’ll be drawing the prize-winning names from our raffle of a WestJet trip for two and tickets to performances of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra.
The hippos you bring will, through the act of bringing them, become hope-opotamuses. Soon they’ll be going out to people who tearfully or smilingly approach us looking for hope and help.
You can find Hope House at 11032-89 avenue. The University is well served by transit. If you decide to drive, park on 89 Avenue, and avoid getting a ticket by getting a parking pass for your dash from our reception desk.
So join us on November 24. You’ll be giving us hope, and helping us spread it.
