Nationwide — For the first time, April will be recognized as the National Month of Hope thanks to an inspiring individual who is on a mission to spread hope across the globe. Recognized as a Hopeologist® as well as the founder and president of Mothers in Crisis Inc., Dr. Rosalind Tomkins will be launching the #HopeChallenge this April, where their goal is to see 10,000 “Hope Connections” take place throughout 2018.

“Through my work with Mothers in Crisis Inc. for over 27 years, I have seen the power of hope in action as over 10,000 women and families have been impacted,” said Dr. Tompkins. In fact, Tompkins understands on a personal level about the need to restore hope as she battled drug and alcohol addiction that started at the age of 12. With the help of others and the birth of her daughter, she was able to turn her life around and has since been recognized as a Humanitarian for the work that she has done to end drug and alcohol addiction for individuals and their families.

Dr. Rosalind Tompkins is available for interviews and can discuss:

* How the National Month of Hope was launched.
* What is the #HopeChallenge?
* What are some practical ways that we can all get involved and spread a bit of hope to our neighbors?
* What is a “Hope Connection”?
* What kind of impact has she been seeing on a local level as a result of the #HopeChallenge?
* How can people get involved with the National Month of Hope?
* What does it mean to be a Hopeologist®

With daily headlines filled with school shootings, flooding and devastation, political turmoil, etc., we can all use a bit of hope in our lives. This April, we hope that you and your audience will get involved and become Citizens of Hope.
