Mission For Hope Afternoon Photography Gala

Image
Sail by my pop-up photo gallery at 43 Railroad Avenue in Beverly on May 18th from 12PM-4PM. Peruse framed and unframed prints of the yachts and places I have photographed over the last 40 years. I'm giving up my place to hit road in June for a 200 day mission trip in my Jeep and my work needs to find new homes that will love them. Donations to my mission trip in exchange for ownership is the idea. Prints will start at a $5 donation and stretched canvas or framed prints will start at a $50 donation. I have close to 100 prints and about 30 framed pieces. And not just boats. Framed and unframed pieces include images of the Galapagos, Alaska, Europe, Americas Cup and schooners. Yes there will be cheese and crackers. More information here: https://www.facebook.com/events/2209384386058148

City outreach planning going very well!

Image
Details have been worked out for my stop in Durham, NC on 11/23. Still looking to partner with a Jeep club or two in that area. Let me know if anybody has any connections. I’ve partnered with many Jeep clubs in 30 of the cities I’ll be doing outreach in. Still looking to connect with Jeep clubs in Anchorage, Seattle, Portland OR, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

Who blessed me?

Image
Okay...who blessed me with @fhgroupauto seat covers off my Amazon Wish list? No gift card inside. So why do I need seat covers? 200 days in my Jeep and lots of meals and drinks while I’m behind the wheel...so my seats could get pretty nasty. These I can wash every few 100 meals plus the camo will hide the dirt.

Newest Sponsor....Hot Logic

Image
Just want to welcome Hot Logic as Mission For Hope newest sponsor. If you follow me on social media you know this is how I cook yummy food on the road so I don’t have to break out my bulky two burner stove when I get into the woods late at night.  You’ll have a chance to win one of these at one of the 5 fundraising things I will be doing in May including a fundraiser Wahlbugers in Lynnfield, MA. 

Shepherds Cup making friends

Shepherds Cup made another friend today. #shepherdscup #missionforhope #jeeps #jeepers

Took a ride with CMA today.

Image
This morning I went for a spring ride with New Life Riders Chapter #763 of the Christain Motorcyclist Association. We rode, blessed bikes, ate and had fellowship. I shared my mission trip and thanked the group for being such an inspiration to my Jeep ministries last fall. God & CMA inspired me to create  Christian Jeep Association and Jeep Pastors   This afternoon they prayed over me and blessed my Jeep. 



















Mission For Hope Fundraiser at Wahlburgers in Lynnfield, MA on Tuesday May 7th from 4-9PM

Image
So my 200 day trip to 30 US cities which have to highest population of people experiencing homelessness is self funded...or should I say self fundraising. Would be great if you could stop by or donate something for the drawing & silent auction. There is more information about my fundraiser at: http://missionforhope.us/events

Please help support my 200 day mission trip by grabbing a burger and some tater tots at Wahlburgers in Lynnfileld on Tuesday May 7th from 4-9PM. Wahlburgers will be donating 15% off all sales to Mission For Hope. (You must show my invite when you pay your check.) There will be drawings and a silent auction for really cool stuff like lots of Wicked Tuna's F/V Hard Merchandise swag, 7 Seas Whale Watch tickets, HotLogic Minis, Wahlburgers Lynnfield Ma & Bertucci's gift cards. More items to be added...I hope. Thank You for your support & prayers!

Mission For Hope is getting real!

Image
My prayer is that Mission For Hope will go much longer than 200 days and it will become an organization that will help people without homes locally and nationally for years to come. Last week Mission For Hope was incorporated and I filed the paperwork with the IRS to become a 501(c)(3) non-profit company. Hopefully that will be a done deal in 4 weeks. Please 🙏! Thank you!

Outreach in each city is coming together!

Image
I’ve spent a crazy amount of time the last three weeks scheduling and coordinating the homeless outreach I will be doing in each city with various Jeep and off road clubs. The response from the clubs in most cities as been nothing short of amazing! So much energy!  This write up about my trip was just published in Colorado Association of Four Wheel Drive Clubs newsletter.  If your club hasn’t jumped onboard yet...give the prez a gentle or not so gentle nudge. 🌎 🚙 #missionforhope 

I have to be so portable...

Image
Kristin thanks for knocking the portable outhouse off my Mission For Hope Amazon Wish List. For those times when I won’t be so deep in the woods on my trip. #yougottogoyougottogo

Image
Great news! Think I have a sponsor for new tires. Going to go bigger for the trip. Not this big...but close. More later. 😊 🚙 🌲 🏔 🏕
