International School of Story
Hopelessness in a community creates homelessness, substance abuse, physical abuse, crime escalation, workplace apathy and depression.
This is a unique opportunity to be a part of a 21-day event to spread HOPE to your community.

Additional Information: The HOPE Walk and HOPE Doll Project is a part of The International School of Story, which shares HOPE through technology and is raising funds for a physical space. The technology platform includes webinar training, blogs and books that share stories of HOPE to encourage and teach, and an app to be developed for global reach. The physical property/place is a studio/workshop to do onsite training, prepare products (HOPE Tea and the HOPE doll) and a home to house women, empowering them when facing difficult times. The women will prepare the products and work within the various aspects of the operation.
We have partnered with The Milligan Foundation to strengthen their funds. They nationally provide for transport and housing resources for people who are in immediate need of relocation, due to life threatening danger from domestic violence.
We are making a difference by giving HOPE in times of darkness, stepping boldly to empower women and girls who need us.
