In the spirit of the holidays, the Hope Scarves staff decided to share what brings them hope and joy throughout the year. We’d like to wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday and new year.
“I find hope in trail running, going on adventures with my three boys, laughter and science.” – Lara MacGregor, Founder
“I find joy in watching my young boys play and laugh, traveling and experiencing new adventures, and helping others. I find hope in the miracle of modern medicine and learning to live and enjoy each moment to the fullest.” – Amy Keller, Director
“People who stand up against injustice and violence, who are brave and full of peace in the face of despair or violence, these champions give me hope. I also find hope and joy in the beauty found in nature, in laughing with friends and family, and in simple moments that allow me to take a deep breath and feel connected.” – Erica Bricking, Program Coordinator
“Malala Yousafzai. People who “pay it forward” and expect nothing in return. Watching my children smiling, laughing and playing, as well as watching them sleep. Spending time with my family helps me focus on what is really important in my life and how very lucky I am.” – Katie Windham, Office Coordinator
“My family and friends, Watching my sons play soccer, a warm fire on a cold night.” – Lauren Stanbery, Friends of Hope Scarves Coordinator
