Victorious Valentine’s Celebration over Samsung’s Use of Hope for Children
– Cancelled by United States Patent and Trademark Office, Trademark Trial and Appeal Board
Patricia Kirby Rasmussen
The Co-Founder of Hope for Children Foundation and said, “Hope for Children Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit children’s charity organization founded for the prevention of cruelty to children, has prevailed in its lawsuit against Samsung Electronics Co, Ltd. Cancellation Number 9205811 in the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. The U.S. Trademark Registration Number 5,409,810 was awarded to Hope for Children Foundation.” Samsung, is a Korean-based company, and temporarily used part of its name Hope for Children, as part of an overall marketing scheme.
Hope for Children Foundation, reclaimed its name in the Trademark Office in an Order. Mrs. Rasmussen stated, “The U.S. Trademark Appeals Board Order concluded: The petition for cancellation is sustained on the ground of likelihood of confusion in connection with Respondent’s International Class 36 services. Registration No. 4132441 shall be partially cancelled in due course. Hope for Children Foundation, is steadfast in its resolve to defend its name, mission and purpose in the face of all unjust opposition.”

Patricia explained, “The unfortunate four-year battle against Samsung expended much of our time and resources. Shortly after Hope for Children Foundation prevailed in the U. S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board Office, attacks continued against Hope for Children Foundation. Several other entities are tricking the public by advertising and using our name, raising funds without our permission, and keeping the funds. Also, our Website was hacked, with attempts to destroy it. Our Website traffic was misdirected to other unauthorized Websites, along with other shocking and bad activities.”
Patricia reminded us, “Valentine’s Day is approaching. We ask for your financial gift of love, expressed generously by donating to Hope for Children Foundation. We are recovering financially from the past five years of various unjustified attacks. Your donation will make a big difference in the lives of so many children across America.”
Valentine’s Day represents a time to really show those you love how deeply you care for them. This time is so much more than just flowers or giving chocolates. It’s a time to reflect and appreciate the ones you love in life, and more importantly to thank them for being next to you through the thick and the thin, ups and downs of life. This could be your spouse, significant other, best friend, a family member, neighbor, school, church or work colleague.
The tricky part to Valentine’s Day is picking out the right gift. The gift as you know does not have to be store bought. Some of the most meaningful gifts are hand-made as well as the Valentine’s card you might give. When you wonder about the right gift to give, let’s turn to the philosophy that your gift should reflect the person who is receiving the gift. There is a gift that suits pretty much everyone. For those who like to live life to the fullest, a gift of an experience, such as a spa retreat, a fun cooking class, an art class, or even off the beaten path tour of the countryside, rather than a traditional gift, is a winner. And if the person you’re gifting is true to the Valentine’s Day tradition; a beautiful floral bouquet and/or chocolate can do no harm.
