Hope Rises Mission

Hope Rises News aims to ignite hope through stories of love and goodwill across the globe. The site was founded by award-winning journalist and storyteller, Kate Glaser.

We are thrilled to have you, the readers, as part of the Hope Rises News community, highlighting real-life heroes making a meaningful difference around the world.

Celebrating Hope

We celebrate compassion, love, strength, inspiration and most of all . . . HOPE. 

The next time you witness something or someone extraordinary, please make sure to tell the Hope Rises News team, so we can celebrate them by sharing their story to our community. 

You can submit your story, along with a photo or video, here. 


At Hope Rises News, we believe that hope gives life meaning. And hope is based on the prospect of being able to one day turn the actual world into one that looks better.

Coming soon you will have an opportunity to donate to our organization on this website!
