DIGIDEBATE EXAMPLE of HOPE: hello we are the hope group and we will start by making and argument about charities. Charities are a completely hope driven event. people donate and contribute to charities in hope of a better futer for the recipient. A few examples would be: 1. People have charities and food-drives to give to people who arnt as fortunate. This gives the people with less fortune hope to have a better tommorow. 2. Without hope through cherity there isnt the possibility to move foward to a better tommorow. 3.There are efforts put out by single people such as movie stars and singers. For example the children of Bill Gates arent going to enherit all of his money, the bulk of it is going to cherity. 4. Martin Luther King put the future of african- americans in front of his own health and well being. He did this out of hope for a peaceful tommorow. 5. Another example is the disaster releif program and the red cross. For example after the tidal wave in Indonesia hundreds of other countries donated millions of dollars. Even though it wasn't a lot it was the thought that counted.
