March 2, 2011 Things have been taking off like crazy ever since the site was launched. As of February 21, 2011 Clothed in Hope is officially a registered nonprofit corporation with the state of North Carolina. In just a week, I've been blown away by the overwhelmingly encouraging reception of Clothed in Hope and the support of everyone around me. People have stepped into my life willing to help in any way possible because they too feel the need to support and promote the cause of Clothed in Hope. I've received a crazy amount of LOVE Africa t-shirt orders both on Etsy and locally, and that's been a fun way of connecting with new friends who are so passionate to be a part of the change for these Zambian women's lives.
The most exciting thing (maybe even so far) happened just today! Clothed in Hope was featured on the front page of USC's student newspaper, the Daily Gamecock. Click here to view the article. This was printed and distributed across campus in addition to the features online allowing friends to share via Facebook, email, and other social media outlets. I have really been blessed with the most encouraging friends ever, and with amazing opportunities to watch Clothed in Hope grow by the minute. I can't wait to see what's in store for the upcoming weeks, months, and even years for Clothed in Hope as it stretches beyond USC to change lives of women forever. Thank you for stepping into this organization and for taking part in this change. Your support makes Clothed in Hope what it is today and provides for what it will be tomorrow.
