On April 28, 2014, an EF-3 tornado swept through Tupelo, MS, where Eight Days of Hope is based. Miraculously, no one was killed. But damage was widespread, with hundreds of homes in the immediate area damaged or destroyed. On July 12, 3023 volunteers from 37 states converged on Tupelo to work in 235 homes. It was the largest Eight Days of Hope trip yet, and attracted much media attention. Here are some of those videos.
After Hurricane Katrina, what started out as just a few friends heading down to the gulf to help out turned into hundreds of volunteers working as the hands and feet of Jesus. From then on, every Eight Days of Hope trip has been bigger than the next. And of course, God's blessing on Eight Days of Hope also turned into a blessing for the thousands of volunteers who've been on 8DOH trips. Many of those volunteers have been SO blessed that they've been on multiple trips, and shared their video memories with us. Here are just a few.
Co-Founder Steve Tybor is literally a man on a mission. He and the other six executive leaders are constantly in search of ways to expand the impact and effectiveness of Eight Days of Hope -- and constantly working to impress upon people how amazingly God has blessed the organization. Over the years, folks from all around the country and globe have produced videos to help magnify Steve's work. These are just a few of those videos.
