April 1, 2020 - May 1, 2020
As the month of April begins, many of us are worried about our friends, families, and medical workers battling on the front lines. With the current COVID-19 situation worsening and widespread negativity among the people, Hopestic wished to spread optimism. We would like to remind everyone that we are all in this together, and we just have to keep fighting through with a smile upon our faces. For every day of this month, each of our members shared a quote they believe has value in promoting positivity and showing encouragement. Through this simple project, we hope to cheer everyone on.

Virtual Art Lessons
May 21, 2020 - June 22, 2020
During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many of us are at home in quarantine. However, we refused to let our situation prevent us from continuing to help others. The Arbors Assisted Living is a senior citizen home whom we got in contact with to create a project to entertain senior citizens who live there. Our project consisted of members creating arts and crafts videos for the seniors to virtually watch and learn from, giving them an opportunity to make their own art pieces. Every Tuesday and Friday, a member's video would be played for them to indulge in creating art pieces for themselves. Although this was a simple idea, the feedback we got back was fantastic! The seniors were zealous and beyond happy watching our videos, they genuinely looked forward to our other videos. For Hopestic, being able to show senior citizens that there are people out there who still care and love them during a pandemic is the most important outcome of these lessons.
