Dear Friends of BLU

We are sad to say that the BLU Fundraising website will no longer be active.  It is our charge to continue Building Lives Up in our community and neighborhood.  Eventually we hope use our delicious BLU Coffee to raise funds for organizations that are near and dear to our heart. BLU’s original intent was to assist with the funding Whisper of Hope, Inc. 501(c)3 not-for-profit.  Hopefully BLU will again come full circle.  If you have ANY questions, please contact Denise at

Many Blessings,
Denise Mills

The Art of Giving

Whisper of Hope is an Oklahoma registered not-for-profit organization with the 501(c)3 designation from the Internal Revenue Service filing under Arts and Humanities.  WoH is committed to empowering the less fortunate to discover and develop their hidden artistic talents by supplying creative art material in a Hope Tote to encourage the Art of Giving.  Believing that Art bridges the gaps between cultures, social classes and age, we build trusting relationship through the universal language of Art.

The founder, Denise Mills is an ordinary mother and retired educator with an extraordinary dream.  As the adopted daughter of a wonderful Oklahoma family, she wishes to make a difference in the lives of those who were not afforded such a blessed outcome.

Denise’s passion for painting and creative arts became the vehicle used to express her love for those in need.  Discovering peace, healing and hope as she painted, she realized it was as simple as putting a paintbrush in someone’s hand.

Whisper of Hope’s current project is providing Hope Totes filled with creative art supplies, to 13 year olds in Oklahoma County Foster Care on their 13th birthday.  A Hope Tote has the recipe for giving printed on each one: 1) Enjoy it 2) Customize it 3) Refill it 4) Pass it on! 

It is Whisper of Hope’s wish, that you catch the wave, and enjoy the Art of Giving!
