Hope – Cause of the Month, Oct. 2010

0

Cause:

Hope – Everyone needs water, air, food, a safe place to live. But something else, a little less tangible but so important is needed. Percy Bysshe Shelley said  “Man can live about forty days without food, about three days without water, about eight minutes without air  but only for one second without hope.”  At Kosmos® we support ministries that give hope to the hopeless and comfort to the brokenhearted.
