In these challenging times, when we can’t necessarily be there for all the special people in our lives, the Langley Advance Times is launching the “Hope For…” initiative.
It takes the concept of love and support introduced through the hearts in the window campaign and the 7 p.m. nightly frontline pot banging, and it takes it a step further, said publisher Lisa Farquharson.
“We’re asking residents of Langley to tell us who they’re hoping for, praying for, or thinking of during these difficult times.”
Maybe it’s an elderly relative distanced for safety reasons.
Maybe it’s a group of first responders or health care professionals out there risking their lives to keep us all safe.
Maybe it’s a child who has warmed your heart by filling your neighbourhood with art bearing messages of inspiration and support.
“Whoever that is for – and it doesn’t necessarily have to be about one person, it can be a group of people such as doctors, nurses, teachers, first responders, Kimz Angels, homeless people, graduates – you put the name on our special pages inside today’s edition of the Advance Times, then take that message of hope and tape it to your window for all to see,” Farquharson encouraged.
“We just want you to tell us who or what you are hopeful for during this challenging time,” she added.
“We’re all in need of hope right now. We all need hope that this is going to go away and that we are mentally, physically, financially, and socially going to come through this and support each other along the way.”
The Hope For… initiative, which runs over the course of the next several weeks, is intended to foster a further show of support for our fellow Langleyites, she said.
Let’s make Langley trend as a community full of true love and hope.

“We look forward to hearing from you,” Farquharson said.
