February 1, 2011

They grow up so fast, don’t they? It’s hard to believe, but HopeLab is 10 years old today. Check out the clip below for a brief look back at our decade of courageous experimentation, customer engagement, broad impact and joy – core values at HopeLab that support our mission and inspire our work. (And be sure to watch to the end for a tease on an upcoming HopeLab initiative that we think will keep you smiling all year.) Enjoy!
