The I Find Hope Project

Where do you find hope?

Is it in the breath of a new born child?
Is it in the advance of medicine?
Is it in your religion and the love of your God?

We all have hope. Hope for a better tomorrow. Hope for peace. Everyone has hope for something. And I want to know what you have hope for.

I have hope that one day, we will end the spread of HIV/AIDS. I have hope that one day, hungry children will be fed. I have hope that one day, the naked will be clothed.

I find hope in my friends. In my family. In my neighbors and classmates.
I find hope in music and the message it can bring.

So I have a favor to ask all of you, my friends:
In honor of World AIDS Day, which is this up-coming December 1st, I am creating a Wall of Hope. I call it the “I Find Hope Project”.
It’s really simple. All you have to do is send me something that brings you hope.
It can be a drawing, a photograph, a poem, an awareness ribbon: anything. It doesn’t have to have anything to do with AIDS and it doesn’t have to have your name on it. Please, try to send before December 1st, but I’ll be taking anything for as long as you want to send it. Please help me you! Thank you all so much in advance!

If you’d like to put something on the Wall, please send submissions to:
