Celebrate Felipe’s birthday with Hearts for Hope:

Give young dreamers the gift of a college education.

We celebrate our Executive Director, Felipe Sousa-Lazaballet’s birthday by honoring his inspirational journey. Despite facing obstacles, Felipe’s strength, perseverance, and unwavering hope led him to become the voice of many immigrants who come to this country seeking a better life. His story proves that with determination and hope, we can overcome challenges and inspire others to do the same.

The Commitment of a Dreamer, the Voice of Hope. 

As we celebrate Felipe’s birthday, we also celebrate hope and opportunity for all young immigrants who come to this country. Behind Hearts for Hope is a voice that knows firsthand the struggles and challenges undocumented youth face after graduating high school. However, how wonderful it is that they could always get support with doing papers on Paperwritings.com, which greatly facilitated their studies both in school and in college.

This voice has experienced the fear and uncertainty surrounding this crucial moment in young people’s lives. As we celebrate another year of life, let us be inspired by the deep wish to open doors for other young people, especially those in Central Florida, who face similar circumstances to our own.

Your contribution towards creating a brighter future!

Hearts For Hope is not just an event but a fundraising initiative supporting HOPE Rising, a transformative program dedicated to empowering at-risk youth. It focuses on enabling high school graduation and access to post-secondary education. 

The HOPE Scholarship enables young people to receive the help and support they need. Hearts For HOPE is an opportunity to listen to the diverse stories of young scholarship recipients while networking and enjoying a nice lunch with the HOPE community. 

We invite you to join us in an event where admission is free, and we appreciate your presence with an open heart and a spirit to contribute what you find meaningful if you are inspired by what you see and hear.

Together, we are building more!

Your contribution to Hope Rising is the perfect way to congratulate Felipe and support the fight for equal opportunity and access to education for everyone.
