Partnership with Purpose

By John Hope Bryant, Founder, Chairman, and CEO, Operation HOPE, Inc.
I am pleased to join Bill Rogers, chairman and CEO of SunTrust Bank for a conversation around The Memo: Five Rules for Your Economic Liberation (Berrett-Koehler, 2017) at SunTrust’s onUp on Tour Atlanta headquarters stop tomorrow at SunTrust Plaza. The event provides the opportunity to highlight the valued partnership between Operation HOPE and SunTrust around our award-winning community uplift model, HOPE Inside, and particularly in the context of the onUp and Silver Rights movements. The message of empowerment through financial literacy at the core of “The Memo” is what the onUp movement is about – encouraging people to take control of their finances in order to enjoy the moments in life that matter.
The onUp movement was launched by SunTrust last year to encourage Americans to talk about money and take the steps needed to turn financial stress into confidence.
SunTrust is taking its financial confidence message on the road with “onUp on Tour,” a pop-up, entertainment experience that inspires visitors to learn about finances through fun, interactive, sports-based activities.  Scheduled to make stops in more than 45 cities, the tour aims to get thousands of people at each location to join the onUp movement and take actions toward financial confidence with free tools, tips and resources. The SunTrust Plaza stop includes games, giveaways, and appearances by the Atlanta Falcons cheerleaders, Freddie Falcon, Braves Heavy Hitters, onUp Honor Roll Skate Crew and other surprise guests.
Join us if you can, for this impactful conversation and a book signing/meet-and-greet directly following. RSVP to info@operationhope.org
