You need love. I need love. Children need love. We all need love.
Although not endurance sports related, I feel this is worthy of our attention.
Hands to Hearts Intl, a small non-profit based in Oregon, is doing big things in the spreading of love and personal power to orphaned children and economically disadvantaged women around the world. This is a group of our global society that is often forgotten and ignored. HHI is focused on changing this.
Hands to Hearts International (HHI) envisions a world where all children are nurtured and loved and where all women have the opportunity to actively contribute to their communities.
HHI is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the health and well-being of orphaned and vulnerable children and economically disadvantaged women around the globe.
How and why was HHI started?
Hear it straight from the Executive Director and founder herself, Laura Peterson.
You can read more about HHI’s program and history on their About Us page.
How many people has HHI helped so far?
HHI has reached 1,812 women and 15,159 children from January 2006 through November 2008. A large portion of their mission has occurred in India so far.
The true impact of HHI’s work won’t be seen for many years as the children grow and mature but I do feel pretty confident about this – a loving and empowering environment are elements that can help an individual and society thrive.
Of course, all of this effort does require resources and one of those is money.
How can we double our investment guaranteed?
Here is the cool part of how you can provide 100% increase in your donation investment while helping make a positive impact in the world – our world.
The James R. Greenbaum, Jr Family Foundation has once again made a generous matching grant available to grow the efforts of HHI to the next level. This means that any new donors, or donors giving at a higher level*, will be have their contributions matched dollar for dollar, up to $50,000!
So for a new donor, your donation of $25 now becomes $50. Your donation of $1500 turns into $3000. Your donation of YY turns into 2 X YY. Simple math – large impact.
If you have donated to HHI in the past and you increase your donation amount, the same doubling occurs.
This donation matching opportunity last only until December 20th.
Don’t forget any donation to HHI is also tax deductible.
Our world is One, as we have recently seen by our global economic situation. We have observed that greed, corruption, and ignorance can negatively impact the entire world.
The empowering side of this is I also believe love, compassion, and education can positively impact the world. HHI is one such example.
If this organization resonates with you, please donate whatever you can. Every dollar can make a difference.
If this organization does not resonate with you, find one that does.
Let’s change the world!
