No one ever says, "Don't get your hopes down." Hope rises until it becomes faith and then flies. It is something that becomes more solid as it rises. There is a saying that real hope is an anchor for our soul, hence the nautical touches. The background circular "pearl" has subtle images of flying things, indicating someone who has come out of hard times to find their wings and soar. 100% of the proceeds from Hope Rises images will go to support carefully vetted organization who are committed to the long-term recovery for rescued victims of human trafficking and modern day slavery.
