NATIONAL MONTH OF HOPE

During April, buds come into full bloom brightening our days, and National Month of Hope also lends a hand in lifting our spirits.

Bringing hope to someone can take many forms. Being a positive role model in the life of a child or providing a community a foundation for future endeavors both provide hope for the future. Lift the spirits of a friend suffering from a medical issue or volunteer at a local homeless shelter. We are each able to bring a ray of hope in our own ways by contributing wisdom, time, kindness and when possible donate to charities that make the impossible possible.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Everyone needs a little hope now and then.  Spread a little sunshine their way and bring some hope into their lives.

âť– Volunteer by reading to children in schools
âť– Experience meaningful and healthy communication with loved ones, family, friends, co-workers,
and colleagues
âť– Giving of time, food, and money to help families in need
âť– Minister to those incarcerated by writing letters and visiting
âť– Post on social media words of hope
âť– Sharing your story of overcoming with those who are going through hard times
âť– Lending a helping hand to those in need
âť– Cleaning up areas where there is trash such as parks and beaches
❖ Spend a day with the homeless whether on the streets in shelters, etc. “Unless you walk a mile in their shoes you won’t know how to help!”

Use #NationalHopeMonth to share your hope on social media.

HISTORY

H.O.P.E.

Mothers In Crisis, Inc. founded National Month of Hope to help spread hope around the world.  Founded by Rosalind Tompkins in 1991 when she was just four years clean and sober, Mothers In Crisis, Inc. supports women and families who are in need bringing them hope and empowering them to find a new path.

On Mothers In Crisis 25th Anniversary in April of 2016, they received proclamations from the City of Tallahassee and the Board of County Commissioners acknowledging the significant contributions Mothers In Crisis has made in their region and also declaring Friday as Hope Universe Day.

The Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed National Month of Hope to be observed annually beginning in 2018.

In come the March winds,
They blow and blow,
They sweep up the brown leaves
That green ones may grow.
–George Washington Wright Houghton, American poet (1850–91)

Just-a-Little-Heart-Attack-700x395

Inspired by the true stories of real women impacted by heart disease, the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement and Emmy-nominated actress Elizabeth Banks created the short film, “Just a Little Heart Attack,” to educate women about the realities of heart disease and encourage them to put their health first. The short film, directed by and starring Ms. Banks, chronicles one woman’s experience ignoring her symptoms and putting herself last. Go Red For Women hopes the film, “Just a Little Heart Attack,” will engage and inspire women to put their health first and take care of their heart.

February Fun Facts

The 2nd month of the year brings us George Washington’s Birthday, Valentine’s Day, and the shortest month of the year.

In the Gregorian calendar, the calendar that most of the world uses, February is the second month of the year. Most of the months have 30 or 31 days in a month but February is shorter. February has 28 days until Julius Caesar gave it 29 and 30 days every four years. This is because the Roman emperor Augustus took one day from February and added that to August because August was a month that was named after him. February is a very cold month followed by January in the northern half of the world. However, there are sunny days in February that indicates that spring is almost here. Different from the northern half, the southern hemisphere usually enjoys midsummer weather.

Below are some fun facts about February:

  1. The birthstone for February is Amethyst.
  2. Two zodiac signs for February are Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) and Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
  3. The month has 29 days in leap years, when the year number is divisible by four. In common years the month has 28 days.
  4. Viola (plant) and the Primrose are the birth flowers.
  5. Black History Month is celebrated in Canada and United States.
  6. National Day of the Sun is celebrated in Argentina.
  7. In order to complete the Soviet Union’s victory in Stalingrad during World War II, the last German troops surrendered in the Stalingrad pocket.
  8. On February 4, 1861, a temporary committee met at Montgomery, Alabama where they organized a Confederate States of America.
  9. On February 6, 1933, Amendment 20 to the United States was proclaimed which moved the Inauguration Day to January 20th.
