Gracelyn’s mission is to bring hope directly to children, no matter what they are going through. We provide encouragement to children in the hospital so they can focus on loving, caring and healing. We support anti-bullying and mental health initiatives for the overall well-being of every child, as well as programs that focus on children struggling in impoverished areas. We aid education efforts to ensure all children are offered equal opportunities to succeed. Our goal is to enhance the lives of all children first-hand through exciting events, fun surprises and opportunities to flourish, regardless of any struggle.
We are excited to share that we are currently supporting the Pet-Assisted Therapy Dog program at Children’s Health. With funding from PetSmart Charities, the Pet-Assisted Therapy Dog program helps deliver the comfort of home to patients’ hospital rooms, ambulatory clinic and playrooms. Children’s Health now has 11 wonderful facility dogs working with patients! The power of an animal to promote positive coping in an unfamiliar or even scary environment during challenging situations is amazing.

Hi, my name is Gracelyn Hope and I am passionate about bringing joy to every child. Sometimes, kids have to grow up too fast and experience hardships early on in life. I believe that every child deserves to be happy and deserves a childhood to remember! I want each kid to know that they matter and that they are loved, so I have created Gracelyn’s Hope to share light with kids near and far.
“My heart said, I have to help people. People that are sick, hurt, mostly people that need it.”
I have always had a heart for helping others, but my love for fundraising began with selling sweets for donations, where I was able to raise $7,500 for the children of Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. I also had the opportunity to speak to more than 8,000 people at WE day, a day for kids involved in charities.
My goal is to raise funds for children and their families, get other kids in on the fun and offer surprises and events for children in the hospitals or shelters so they can enjoy their childhood. I want every kid to know that they have something to give – whether it’s their time or talents – and help out a child in need. When we join together to lift others up, we can bring joy and healing to children and their families.
