How did you come to work at HelpHOPELive?


I worked as the managing editor of a digital content marketing startup in Philadelphia.  Even though I enjoyed my job, when it came time to move on, I realized that my heart was leading me to nonprofit work. I started looking for a job and came across HelpHOPELive by chance. I am so glad I did!


What’s your favorite thing about working here?


Most of the families I work with every day are facing a load that I can’t even begin to personally understand. I like to think that if nothing else brings them hope or good news in a day, their phone call to me or to HelpHOPELive can be a brief period of time in which they know they will experience patience and compassion. My favorite part of my job is being able to help make people’s lives easier in a small but often meaningful way.


What gives you HOPE?


Individual stories give me HOPE, like Paul Mustol’s story. Paul and his family are faced with several potentially terrifying factors beyond their control, including mobility loss, financial challenges and the potential for Paul to pass away as a young adult. Paul’s mother, Anna, and her family are instilling a love of life and a love of service into Paul at a young age so that he can live a meaningful life regardless of how long it is. I look at Paul’s picture to remind me how beautiful life is.

  • A hashtag (#) is used to identify the topic(s) of your Tweet. When you share your HelpHOPELive page, you could add #HelpHOPELive or #fundraising or #hope to your Tweet. Anyone who searches for either of those terms on Twitter might see your Tweet.
  • If you want to reach out to a particular user or organization in your Tweet, use the @ symbol to “tag” that user.
  • WARNING! Not all users use their real name as their account name in Twitter. For example, HelpHOPELive is on Twitter as @HelpHOPELiveorg. You can search for a person or organization in Twitter ahead of time to find out what name to add after the @ symbol in your Tweet.
