A new RHTH e-newsletter was just sent out to share our new video, other updates and even some fun upcoming events. Please take a few minutes to read it over and share if you would. We appreciate your interest in RHTH and our transplant families. Have a great week everyone!
We love our transplant guests Dave, Alanna, Nancy, Chuck and Linda for capturing the true beauty of Restoring Hope Transplant through their heartfelt words and stories in this new video. It is extremely powerful and from the heart when guests tell our story. When it makes you emotional and fills you with such joy every time you watch it, you know it’s finally ready! Our heartfelt gratitude also to Big Dreamers United for making this beautiful video possible and for gifting it to our family of guests to enjoy.
It has always taken an entire village to make Restoring Hope possible as a non-profit. As we prepare for the future of RHTH and expansion, we need the help of our RHTH family and friends to collectively help raise the type of funding that will cover the expenses of this major project. Our mission is to always make this house available at a reasonable rate for our families in need. The generosity of major funding for construction and operations ensures that we will keep this house affordable for those who need it most while also providing the safe refuge of caring and community that our families have come to depend on and trust since we opened.
We have the unique opportunity to make that dream a reality here in our community through our mission and our plans. If you know of any individual, family, foundation, group or business that would have their hearts so touched by the stories in this video or by Restoring Hope’s mission that they would consider becoming a donor to our renovation efforts, please contact RHTH Executive Director Cindy Herbst at 608-831-1726 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we can get to $150,000 more of our $1 Million goal, it would be huge for the long-term success of this house and our plans. Together, we will create one of the greatest gifts to the transplant community ever. Please help and thanks for watching!

There is no question that 2020 has been our most challenging year to date at Restoring Hope Transplant House with the endless layers of a global pandemic impacting our work at every turn. Yet here we stand in mid-November with our doors still open to any of our families in need of essential hospital care and working hard each and every day for the exciting plans we have for the future.
How blessed we are to still be doing what we passionately love to do while so many others have lost those opportunities in the face of overwhelming obstacles. That is a credit to you…our transplant families, our loyal supporters, our compassionate believers. During the worst pandemic of our lifetime, we have collectively found a way to scratch and claw our way through all of the financial losses of 2020 so that we can focus on doing what we do best.
As many of you know, one of our best friends here at RHTH passed away a week ago at the hospital from cancer related challenges. His grieving wife is still with us today at RHTH surrounded by a community of support and love. It is a constant reminder that no matter how this pandemic impacts our daily lives that what we do is important. What we do matters. What we do really does make a difference for the people who call Restoring Hope home.
As a non-profit, there’s no secret that year end holiday giving is incredibly important for the success of any charitable cause. We also understand that 2020 has been the hardest year financially for the vast majority of our families, friends and supporters which makes creating posts like this no fun whatsoever for me personally. We get your daily struggles, feel your constant sacrifices and understand the anxieties of trying to make ends meet. I also know of your love for this house and the love you share for the people you shared it with. If some way…some how you still have the means to support a charitable cause during this holiday season of year end giving, I hope you will consider making a donation to support the work we do here at RHTH. With love to you all!
Our new RHTH e-newsletter was just sent out to email subscribers. It has been a true blessing to be open again these past couple months to our transplant families. It was also an exciting week last week for the future of the house as our construction plans were approved to move forward with the Landmark Commission that oversees historic houses like these after a lot of hard work. Please take a moment to read and share. Appreciate you all!
