More Hopelits

A team of volunteers – the HopeLiters!

An initiative launched by children’s author Claudia Gliemann led to seven women teaming up in 2020 to create the online platform HopeLit. 

The seven HopeLiters are supported by many, many more people behind the scenes. 

Here we present all our helpers from different industries who make it possible for us to provide such a wide range of beautiful materials. 

A big thank you to each and every one of them for their sterling work!

Our heartfelt thanks go out to:
