The “There Is Hope Movement” began on September 11, 2011. Dave recorded a song called “There Is Hope". The song is a message of hope and love.
In 2014 the song took on a new meaning, the focus has shifted. Recovery and addiction groups began using the title of this song as a rally cry, claiming that “There Is Hope” from addiction. The renewed “There Is Hope Movement” was born when that statement was declared. Dave’s sister Lori, started making bracelets with a very simple statement on them. "There Is Hope". Since then, thousands of these bracelets have been sold and given to people needing hope and wanting to spread the message of hope in their everyday lives. Those in recovery find these bracelets a tremendous help. They have stated that when they get the urge to use, they look down at their wrist and start praying instead of using. This is powerful. The movement took a dramatic turn on Good Friday in April of 2017 when dave’s nephew Ryan overdosed on heroin and died in dave’s basement. Dave’s family created the Ryan Lamb Fund which is dedicated to Ryan’s memory and to continuing to spread the message of hope. Ryan was 27 years old. He was a great kid, he wasn’t a junkie. He was someone who had a disease that he couldn’t beat. He was an avid fisherman who loved his family and wanted nothing more than to help others. Please take a minute to watch his video below and hear his story, in his own words.
We’ll add more organizations as we get them.
Join the movement. There is hope from addiction. There is hope from heroin. There is hope. Order a bracelet or a necklace today. Order a T-Shirt or a painting today. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these items goes straight to the There Is Hope Movement which is working in conjunction with the above organizations to help those in recovery and those who are fighting addictions every day.
Hope from addiction doesn’t just apply to those fighting with an addiction to drugs or alcohol. If we are honest with ourselves, we all fight some form addiction in one way or another. Whether it be food, pride, social media, porn, the list goes on and on. We are all in this together. We are all fighting against one addiction or another. We all need hope. So together, let’s beat this. Let’s fight our addictions and find hope.
Join the movement. There is Hope.
