Project: HOPE Review by Deborah WuehlerT-Shirt of the Month Club
Consider the Fields
Franklin County, Virginia
Project: HOPE is a Christian ministry organization. Their website states “Project: HOPE exists to help mothers with children recover from addiction in a long-term program in a safe, healing, faith-based atmosphere.” HOPE stands for Healing, Opportunity, Purpose, and Education. Project: HOPE’s goal is to keep hurting families together, instead of separating them during recovery. Project: HOPE includes a retail/thrift/boutique store to provide a revenue stream for the program. The staff includes women in the program who learn responsibility and skills for their future. Their vision for the future is to have a Hope House which would be a group home for these families to live together as they go through their recovery program.
T-Shirt of the Month Club is their monthly subscription group where 100% of the profit from the club goes directly to support Project: HOPE. When you sign up for the T-Shirt of the Month Club, you not only help others in need, you receive a beautiful T-shirt with a Scriptural theme, a Bible verse of the month in a frame, (you rotate in a new Scripture card each month), and a link to a Bible study on that Scripture or theme. $27 per month is the cost to receive a new T-shirt, Scripture card, and Bible study (in pdf form) each month.
I signed up two months ago, so have received two T-shirts so far. The first one is a dark gray and printed on the front is, “Everyone Can Do Something” based on the included Scripture card of Deuteronomy 14:29 which speaks of helping the orphans and the widows. The second t-shirt is a dark green and says, “He left the ninety-nine to rescue me” based on the included Scripture card of Matthew 18:12 which says, “How think ye? If a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?” I ordered a women’s XL, but it looks and fits more like a men’s XL, so keep in mind that these run larger. They are 100% cotton, so they may shrink with washing or drying and then may fit better.

It feels great to wear a product that you know is helping women and children in crisis get the help they need while they get to stay intact as a family. I love seeing Scripture displayed in my house in all forms, and it is extra special to wear Scripture on a t-shirt. It is a wonderful way to spread the Word of God as well as a good discussion piece to share the ministry of Project: HOPE. It is a fun surprise to see what will come next. The packaging is beautiful as are the t-shirts. But more so, the company’s desire to honor Christ as they help those in need is the most beautiful aspect of it all.
