Waves of Hope to Change the World
William Shakespeare wrote, “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em.” Wavemakers take the hurricanes of life and create something positive in the aftermath of the storm. Our goal is to reach as many lives as possible. One voice, one action can create tidal waves of change. One of our favorite movies is the Newsies. In one scene, Bryan Denton tells the kids, "Sometimes all it takes is a voice, one voice that becomes a hundred, then a thousand, unless it's silenced." We've chosen to break the silence that surrounds trauma, grief, and loss. We choose to talk about those ugly truths, break the taboo, and share hope through our heartache. We choose to make waves of hope that will change the world.
Once upon a time,
two girls from the country, in a town without a stoplight, decided to share Joy with everyone they met. They daily lived life to the fullest, befriending the lonely and helping others at every opportunity. Their lives were cut short, at 16 and 18 years but in those years they made waves in the lives of others. We continue that mission of hope in their honor. Will you make waves with us?
