Steven’s Hope Co-Founder Launches Book Twelve Years In The Making

BOAP-cover-web largeTwelve years after Steven Cappelli’s brief life, the inspirational journey of hope and healing that was the catalyst for starting Steven’s Hope for Children will finally be shared.

Because of a Promise – A Mother’s Inspirational Journey from Whispers to Ripples by Sandy Cappelli is officially being launched on Thursday morning April 18, 2013 at 8AM PDT.

When asked why it took so long to get the story out, Sandy responded, “It wasn’t the story I wanted to write.  The pregnancy was so hopeful that I believed I was writing about a miraculous healing of my son’s heart. When that didn’t happen, I thought of the story as a “failed” whisper and could not see purpose in publishing.”

Periodically, Sandy would pull out the book and do some light editing, but it would always end up back on the shelf. Then, eighteen months ago, friends started working on Sandy to get the book published. On Thursday, April 18, the launch of the book becomes official.

“After providing hope and healing to thousands of families through Steven’s Hope for Children, I no longer think of it as a failed whisper, but I am still humbled by the response of those who have read an advance copy of the book.  Everyone seems to be taking away something different. For some it is about love and loss, for others it is about the faith and prophecy that guided us, while others seem to resonate with the concept of making ripples of impact in the world around us. I am just happy that my story is impacting lives.”

A new website has been created to help promote “Because of a Promise” and to offer groups the opportunity to have Sandy speak and share the message of moving from “Whispers to Ripples.” You can also sign up for her blog, social media or read and view testimonials on the book.  The website address is www.sandycappelli.com.

“The official book launch will be between 8 AM and noon this Thursday,” said Tony Cappelli. “We are hoping to make it an Amazon Best Seller to open more doors to get the message out and to bring greater awareness to Steven’s Hope for Children to help further its mission. We would appreciate all the help we can get.”

HOW TO HELP

To assist with the book launch, purchase your book(s) from amazon.com on the morning of 4/18. You can also contribute through the “Ripple It Forward” project which allows supporters to go online and make a tax-deductible donation to buy one or more copies of Because of a Promise to be distributed for free to a family involved with the Steven’s Hope ministries that can benefit from its inspirational message.

Steven’s Hope in Upland helping kids during holidays and year round

(Will Lester/Staff Photographer) Tony and Sandy Cappelli, founders of Steven's Hope For Children in Upland, stand in their store Wednesday November 2, 2011.

UPLAND – For many seriously ill children and their families, Steven’s Hope for Children is Santa Claus.

“A lot of families send us pictures of their kids Christmas morning just beaming because they’ve gotten something,” Tony Cappelli said. “Whether it’s a game they really wanted or not they’re beaming because they got something and they didn’t expect it.”

Steven’s Hope provides housing and support to families of ill children. They have three apartments near Loma Linda University Medical  Center where families can stay during their child’s treatments.

Through Winter Wonderland, sick children and their siblings submit their holiday gift wishes. A donor will sign up to fulfill those wishes.

Last year they gave out more than 3,800 gifts to more than 1,000 children from six local hospitals.

“It’s a prayer that we get all the wishes filled. It’s a little scary when you head out into an economy like this, but last year we exceeded everything that we could imagine,” Sandy Cappelli said. “I’m just praying we get enough to get all the kids sponsored again. Our goal is to hit over 1,000 again.”

Similar to many nonprofits, Steven’s Hope is working hard to stay afloat financially, but have seen donations grow for its Wonderland program.

“People they don’t have money,” Sandy Cappelli said. “This is why it’s such a huge program for us because they all want to deliver toys. I can’t get a check, but I can get toys, which is good. We’re making the best of that and helping as many people as we can help through that.”

This year they are looking for toys and sponsorships for two holiday parties in December.

Donors also can hold toy drives to help provide toys for the children at the parties.

“They all sit there holding this gift form Santa Claus, because Santa is the one who delivers it, – to see their little faces and to watch them open these gifts – it is so fun,” Sandy Cappelli said. “They don’t even know we load their trunk up for Christmas.”

Because the Cappellis want to continue to see those happy smiling faces, they are kicking off a new program that will spread the Christmas spirit year round.

“We just don’t want the spirit of Christmas to end on Dec. 25,” Tony Cappelli said.

They are looking for funding to support 25 families throughout the year with gift cards for food and gas as well as family celebrations.

Since their inception more than 10 years ago, Steven’s Hope has become more than housing.

Not only does it provide gifts for sick children and their families at Christmas, it also has two kids clothing boutiques, and try to support families with food, gas cards and family events.

Steven’s Hope opened the two boutiques, one next to their office at 1014 W. Foothill Blvd., Suite C and one in Rancho Cucamonga at 10730 Foothill Blvd., Suite 170.

They offer gift cards to their boutique for parents to buy their children clothing and toys.

The proceeds from the boutiques go to fund their programs and apartments.

“It adds up. It really does,” Sandy Cappelli said. “I just feel like we’re not just about one thing. We’re about hitting the needs of what the families are. We look at their situation and we can accommodate what needs to be done. ”

Winter Wonderland Gets Early Start

Winter Wonderland didn’t start out as a planned project.  Tony was writing the newsletter back in 2005  and he had a little “white space” remaining.  To fill the space, he asked readers to help with “Winter Wonderland: a Christmas Gift Giving Project.”   Well, the next thing you know, the phone is ringing and people wanted to help.

And help they did! Winter Wonderland allows our supporters to be directly influential in the joy that kids have over the holiday season.  From the presents and the smiles to the memories that can last a lifetime, Winter Wonderland works.  read the rest of the story
