First Look at our Packaging!

Comment

Hello HopeFULL supporters!

After a year of research design and development we've finished our packaging design for both the BellyFULL Kit and HopeFULL Kit! We could not have done this without your support, so we're giving you the first look!  Our sales team (Van Liermann & Associates) will head our retail launch beginning with a product showcase at the Minneapolis Mart Show the 17th through the 22nd of January. It is such an exciting time for The HopeFULL Company, and we are incredibly grateful to you for helping us get to where we are today. THANK YOU!

Below you'll find computer renderings of both kits. NOTE: the colors are not true, as they are computer generated. The packaging is bright, cheerful and will really "pop" on the shelves. Also, you can't see the pack of spoon-sticks or recipe books in the photos as they are packaged underneath the silicone mold. (We make note of what's in the kit on the front and back of the box.) We will post another Kickstarter update with photos of each kit once we have the prototypes in hand (next week!) but we wanted to give you a sneak peak. 

Thank you again for your unwavering support and for believing in us from the very beginning!

Much love, 

Jessica & Stephanie

Update #21

40% off AND downloadable ebooks? Yeah baby!

Comment

That's right!  We're now offering our HopeFULL and BellyFULL Recipe Books as downloadable ebooks for just $4.99 each!  Now it's super easy to get your hands on our yummy whole food pop recipes.  You can view the pdf file on your smart phone, too, which makes for easy grocery shopping. :)

We've also launched a Back to School Sale - ALL our kits are now 40% OFF - that means our BellyFULL Kits and HopeFULL Gift Packs are just $23.99 each!

BellyFULLs make the perfect after school snacks, healthy “grab-‘n-go” breakfasts and recovery treats after sport games. Our HopeFULLs are a great way to get necessary nutrients and healthy calories when eating becomes difficult. Get your kits while the prices are hot! (or should we say "cool"?) :)

Enjoy the dog days!

Continuing Our Mission

Comment

We are sincerely grateful these days. Yes, we've had a string of good luck lately. But winning furniture and traveling to NYC isn't what The HopeFULL Company is all about. To us the most important thing is that we continue to help people get the nutrition they need and the hope they deserve during difficult times. This is our mission. Always has been, always will be.

In order for our business to keep growing and to continue our mission we need your help. And thanks to a program sponsored by Chase and LivingSocial called "Mission: Small Business" your support could translate into a $250,000 grant for The HopeFULL Company. BUT, we need at least 250 votes by June 30th to qualify.

Will you please take 30 seconds to vote for us? Just go to the "Mission: Small Business" website and click 'Log In & Support' and log in using Facebook. Then search 'HopeFULL' - Click on the blue Vote button next to our business name to show your support for our small business.

Because of your support over the last 19 months The HopeFULL Company has been changing lives, and it has truly been an honor.

Thank you for your vote, and for continuing to support The HopeFULL Company!

Much love,

Jessica and Stephanie


Update #18

Holy Office Furniture, Batman!

Comment

A HUGE thank you to all of you who voted, posted and tweeted about our Turnstone contest video - because of your support we won $25,000 of kickin' office furniture! 

The amazing peeps from Turnstone flew into town yesterday to throw us a little party and present us with a sweet skateboard, signifying our win. Turnstone is also making The HopeFULL Company their featured winners, so once the furniture is installed (in just a few short weeks) they will be shooting a video with us, spotlighting our company, new furniture and stellar artspace digs. 

Stay tuned...you're sure to get an invitation to come chill on our new Campfire Lounge and enjoy a refreshing BellyFULL sometime soon! 

Cheers! 

Jessie and Stephanie
