Raising hope with a Bubble Break

A Big Anniversary, A Small Request

#BubbleBreak35

It’s everyone’s worst fear come true: a loved one becomes unexpectedly ill or severely injured, and insurance can’t cover all the costs. A medical crisis can quickly become a financial crisis.

For 35 years, Help Hope Live has supported community-based fundraising to help people in medical crisis afford the care they need to heal, live, and thrive.

Now for our 35th anniversary, we want to connect people in a way that’s never been done before.

Our goal is to get 35,000 people blowing bubbles to raise funds and awareness to help our nonprofit reach more families in need. Because life is fragile, but hope and community support can make all the difference.
