Here's what her mom posted on facebook on their page March Forth With Hope Foundation. They are in the process of getting funding for a about Hope and her wish - it was 10 years ago. If anybody here would like to help them with this, it would be much appreciated.
I need YOUR help!!!It has been 10 years since Hope made her wish! It is the time of year when things started rolling with her wish and Panthers in 2003. It is such a great story of HOPE for the season, I would like to flood ABC, NBC! And Fox and Friends with emails to have them do a story on Hope after 10 years. The panthers are on a roll and Keith's book is out! and I have pudge the cat who needs to be seen! Ha ! The movie funding is about 150,000 from happening. We need another miracle. If you have passion for Hopes story, please consider doing this with us. We are thinking Friday will be the day. We ask you to spread the word to your friends and help this go viral, we will be posting an example of email you can paste and websites in the next day or two! Let's do this! #justbelieve
There are at least a couple of facebook pages for her if you're interested in following them
They are currently ranked #7 (although it's been fluctuating between #6 and #7 this morning) and have to be in the top 5 on Saturday to be eligible for the prize. I think you can only vote once a day, but every little bit helps. This was the school my son attended, but he's long gone. But my daughter will be there one day. Butler has a real shot at this, so every vote helps.
Local high schools compete for $100,000 safe driving grant Posted: Oct 22, 2013 9:51 AM EST Updated: Oct 24, 2013 9:05 AM EST
UPDATE: Thursday 10/24, 9am: Butler High School is now ranked #7. See full story below!
David W. Butler High School in Matthews reached out to WBTV Tuesday morning for help spreading the word about a safe driving competition that could win the school big bucks.
Several high schools in the WBTV viewing area, and thousands of schools nationwide, are taking part in the ‘Celebrate My Drive' competition that could earn them up to $100,000.
According to the competition website, at least 10% of the winnings must be spent in support of a teen driver safety program to benefit the students of the winning school. The other 90% can be spent on school-related needs defined by the winning school and approved by State Farm, the business backing the ‘Celebrate My Drive' competition.
So how does it work?
Every day this week, October 18-26, high schools and community members across the country are making commitments to safe driving. The commitment process is also an educational tool.
The Butler High School Dream Team has been promoting the competition for about two months. They reached out to WBTV because they are currently ranked #13 in the large schools category. They tell us they need to make the top 5 to win the $100,000 grant.
