Ashley Brown, nicknamed Peach, is a HelpHOPELive Financial Assistant and one of the newest members of our team. We found out what makes her tick.
How did you come to work at HelpHOPELive?
I wanted a more meaningful job where I could actually feel like I had helped someone or made a difference at the end of every work day.
What’s your favorite thing about working at HelpHOPELive?
I love seeing updates and photos from our patients through their online Campaign Pages and connecting with patients directly by phone. Hearing patient stories and finding out about successful transplants and other medical milestones really makes you appreciate your life so much more. You’re working for people who don’t have it as easy as you, and they’re working even harder every day just to live and thrive.
I also enjoy speaking with contributors to patient campaigns, because some people are donating their last pennies in the hopes that their contribution will help someone survive.
What gives you HOPE?
Random acts of kindness from strangers give me hope. They let me know that there are people who care in the world and not everybody is in it for themselves. If everybody cared about strangers the way they care about their own family and friends, the world would be a much better place.
