Getting started with your event

There are a few ways you can go about hosting an event for All hands and Hearts, such as galas, campaigns, lemonade stands, bake sales, car washes, art evenings, running a race and so many more. 

Fundraising is a personal expression of your passion and care for our mission so there is no wrong way to do it – it all depends on you! Through your kindness, we can help build disaster-affected communities in a more resilient way.

The gift of a bright future

Hosting an event is more than raising money, it is the hope of a brighter future. Here are a few ways that we have helped to build the future, together.

A Bright Future for Families

Sophia Olivarez and her family have lived in their home for 51 years. Since Hurricane Harvey, they’ve lived with other family members; but now, more than a year later and just in time for Thanksgiving, they’ve finally returned home!

A Bright Future for Education

Nancy Núñez was giving a painting class at the Narciso Mendoza school in Mexico when the earthquake struck. Along with volunteers, the teachers stepped in to help rebuild. Not only are they teaching the academic curriculum, but they are also teaching strengths and resilience by example.

A Bright Future for Communities

Volunteers hosted a mud and tape drywall interactive demonstration in the Kids’ Zone at a Hurricane Harvey anniversary event. Some kids were familiar with the activities because their own homes were being rebuilt. These are future carpenters, architects, or engineers in the making!

A Bright Future for Volunteers

“I’m building a future – not only physically for the houses we’re working on, or the people we are helping – but also the future in relationships with the unique people here. This is a second home to me. I’m building bonds for the rest of my life.”
– Volunteer Connor, San Diego, California
