Meet "Hope the Hippo"
Hope is now accompanying each Package of Hope that's given to our Lily's Hope Families! Read the story about this wonderful mascot!
The idea for "Hope the Hippo" came from Lily and Aidan Driscoll. When Lily was just one-month-old, her grandfather gave her a gray hippo, which eventually became her favorite stuffed animal. "Hippo," as he is affectionately called, quickly became another member of the family. In an attempt to make sure "Hippo" would always be with her, we purchased an additional hippo just in case. This backup hippo recently became Aidan's favorite stuffed animal, whose name is "Hippo Number Two."
It recently became obvious that the mascot for Lily's Hope Foundation would be a hippo. Lily's Hope Foundation works with Artistic Toy in Allentown to provide every Lily's Hope preemie with their very own "Hippo," or as she is now known as...Hope the Hippo.
We also thank Art Knute for his graphic design talent for designing our own cartoon "Hope the Hippo." Her smiling face is so happy and cheerful for our Lily's Hope families.
