Foundation Hope

Below you will find a link to a website that we have created for our Hurricane Katrina T-Shirt Fundraiser. Brett & Deanna Favre and their foundations, along with Foundation Hope, Inc. are trying to bring awareness and support back to those along the MS Gulf Coast who were so adversely affected by Hurricane Katrina. AND WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We know the power of one individual to make a difference in the lives of others. So, we ask you to please consider supporting this effort AND please forward this message with the link to as many people as you can and encourage them to give a HAND UP to those on the MS Gulf coast in rebuilding their lives, homes and communities. So many resident's are losing HOPE; especially during this holiday season. You can give the greatest Christmas gift ever by giving the gift of HOPE to these families through supporting this effort.
Foundation Hope, Inc. has currently completed 15 homes and with your support we can do so much more. We realize that many people across this nation cannot physically come and volunteer, BUT YOU CAN give and have a GREATER impact in a life. The purchase of one T-shirt can support (3) licensed and skilled laborers DAILY to work on the homes in our program. Foundation Hope, Inc. can complete a new construction or repair project in an average of 7-10 days. Imagine the impact YOU CAN have by supporting (3) laborers DAILY...... WWW.FOUNDATION-HOPEGEAR.ORG
Please visit the website and make a difference this Christmas in the life of one who greatly needs you and your support. For more information concerning our efforts, please contact the FoundationHope, Inc. offices at (228) 255-0244.
The Foundation Hope, Inc. website is currently under construction, but please revisit our website at

This is the house we built from scratch.....1204 sq ft. on 14 ft. pilings for less than $25,000. Finally found the builder and the person to agree with me that it could be done.

9 months of much prayer and much persistence paid off! Finally.

This is our second one and the third is going up Aug. 10th.



(Their first one was a total rebuild for a leukemia child's family)

We are Foundation Hope, Inc. a non-profit organization providing disaster relief to the residents of the MS Gulf Coast. This is my hometown. I have lived north of the coast in Hattiesburg for the last 11 years, but my mom, uncles, aunts, brothers, bets friends, etc. all still live on the coast.
I made my way with my friends back to the coast via vehicle and ATV to start distributing supplies that my friends and relatives from across the country started sending to us. With the help of our friends at the Air McNair Foundation and The Brett Favre Fourward Foundation and the personal assistance of their volunteer-extraordinaire, Rick Maddox, we started the Point of Distribution (POD).

This turned into what is now known as Foundation Hope, Inc. Since, we have been granted a 5 million dollar In-Kind donation from The People of Saudi Arabia to rebuild damaged homes. We started this effort February 13.
