Get Involved

Want to make a tangible difference? Anybody can do it…

When disasters strike, our shared humanity compels us to help. From Jay-Z’s TidalX concert to Eva and Morgan’s lemonade stand, we have been so inspired by the outpour of support for communities affected by natural disasters. This diversity is truly eye-opening.

There are so many ways to get involved. If you have an idea, we’ll help you get started. If you know that you want to make a difference but don’t quite know how, we’ll help you channel that energy. The possibilities are endless.

“Take the time to really experience giving and not just write a check. Go to the places you are helping, because it will give you a different understanding of life, and a new dimension of joy and gratitude.”

Petra Nemcova, Co-Founder

The possibilities are endless

From the dorm room to the boardroom, leadership starts with service and commitment. Check out our suggestions below for ways to serve.

The majority of funds are raised in the first three-to-four weeks after disasters. From that, 80% of the funding goes to first-response. If we focus only on first-response, we can’t build resilience. We need your help to put children and their families back on their feet and rebuild resilient communities.
