The following definition is used for “Hope” in the HUG Award© Guidelines:
“Hope is an expectant desire; a confidence in a future event; a ground for trust and confidence; to think; to look forward to with trust and expectant desire.”
People do not have to give up or compromise their own religious, spiritual, or political beliefs to qualify for the Hope Unites Globally HUG Award©. They qualify for the HUG Award© when, without bias or prejudice, they use their resources and gifts to make the world a better place for everyone.
People who qualify for the HUG Award© have a hope or an expectant desire that the work or talents they use in things such as blogging, public speaking, charity work, etc., will make a positive impact on the world.
People do not have to actively use the word “hope” in their work or creative talents. They only need be conscious of their desire to make the world a better place for everyone.
Even though the HUG Award© is not specifically a blog award, I believe, there are many bloggers who qualify for the HUG Award©. If you believe you qualify for the HUG Award©, or you would like to nominate someone else for the award, please visit the site below and leave a comment on the page.
