      Congratulations. I'm glad to back such an awesome cause. Here's a heart wrenching story of a family in need. They're in the Central GA area. They lost everything in fire and two daughters aged 10 and 13 recently died.

    16. Creator Andrew Maxwell on February 16, 2012

      Visionary, brilliant, and incredibly exciting, Shaun and team! We're all so excited over here at The Future Project -- at the heart of HopeMob, after all, is building a new world in which everyone is inspired and powerful and passionate enough to make change, which must be what defines the future! -- so just made a bit of an unreasonable donation to put you over the top and match your approach! Because as it's been said, 'All progress depends on unreasonable people," and soon, it seems, HopeMob can make unreasonability -- in all the best ways -- a way of life for more people than ever before.

      We love it. Congratulations!

    17. Creator J Micah on February 16, 2012

      Shaun King... Thank you for being a "dealer in hope"! You are an inspirational leader, who is showing others the importance of servanthood. I am honored to be a part of HopeMob, and am excited to see where God is going to take this idea of yours! God bless!

    28. Creator Sania Elshorbgy on January 20, 2012

      Shaun, you are an inspiration. Keep shining and showing others that serving God and your fellow man takes true boldness and strength of purpose. I wish you the best of luck in all your ventures.

    32. Creator Dave Girgenti on January 9, 2012

      @Elizabeth. Understood. I was hoping to partner up. Strength in numbers sort of thing.

    33. Creator Elizabeth Bass on January 6, 2012

      Dave, I checked Wish Upon a Hero and it is truly a wonderful thing. However attempting to dissuade Shaun from starting another very different philanthropic movement is pretty counterintuitive. There's room in the world (and especially on the internet) for everyone's ideas and especially MORE HOPE.

    34. Creator Shaun King on January 5, 2012

      Thank you all so much for your help here. As you may know, the HopeMob team was trying to help little Jessie Rees get 50,000 Facebook fans. Jessie passed away this morning after a brave fight with cancer. Please help her wish come true though. Spoke w/ her dad and he asked that we keep pushing:

      Shaun, thank you for your hard work - making it easy for the rest of us to participate. Andy Stanley once said, "if you can't help everyone, help ONE!" It all starts by helping one! Love!
