Happy Birthday, Halle.
On June 20, 2007, Halle was born. We became parents, our family was created, our love grew deeper than we ever imagined. We had no idea where life would lead us; we sure didn’t think it would lead us here. But, 10 years later, we are profoundly grateful for the HOPE Halle inspires, the LOVE she spreads, and the KINDNESS she instills … upon us, and many thousands, each and every day.
This year YOU ALL proved what good Halle inspires in all of us. Truth be told, we never, ever, ever, thought our #my10for20 birthday celebration would spread as much hope, kindness and love as it continues to do. Frankly, we couldn’t think of a better way to honor Halle, our sweet girl filled with endless hope and love to share.
We have all made her PROUD.
Thank you for honoring her birthday with us, for sharing your Best 10 with others,
and spreading Halle’s Hope far and wide.
We are all better for it, and smile a little brighter
because of you.
With incredible love from all of us at Halle’s Hope,
we thank you.
Here’s How it Worked:
Step 1: Decide what your Best 10 will be
What 10 things can YOU do that will push you outside your comfort zone? Make you proud? Inspire others? Have an impact on your community?
Maybe you’ll run 10 miles, or compliment 10 classmates, or turn off the i-pad for 10 days. Maybe your best 10 is baking 10 pies for neighbors, or donating 10 toys to a local shelter. You may decide to send a card to 10 friends, just to say hello, or open the door for 10 people. How about writing 10 motivational quotes and giving them anonymously to friends who need them most. Spend 10 minutes picking up trash in your neighborhood, or visit a local nursing home 10 times. So, what’s your Best 10?
Step 2: Donate $20 to Halle’s Hope
You’ve proven how great you can be, now help us continue spreading our greatness, too.
After you’ve completed your Best 10, consider making a $20 donation to Halle’s Hope. Donations can be made securely here, or by mail: Halle’s Hope, P.O. Box 397, New Canaan, Connecticut 06840.
Step 3: Share your #my10for20
You can’t stop now, you have to shout it from the roof tops!
Show off your Best 10 by sharing your photos and videos. Use the hashtag #my10for20 or email us your best pics, and we’ll repost it!
Step 4: Challenge 3 friends, spread the word
With your support, we’ll reach new heights.
You can help us reach our goal to raise $20,000 by June 20th. Tell your friends, challenge them to their Best 10, encourage others to explore our site and learn about our foundation. Make your $20 donation, and support our efforts to build hope and create possibilities.
