After hearing about the recent earthquakes to hit Puerto Rico, my heart hurt for them. The tiny island has been through so much recently, between the hurricanes of the past couple of summers and now earthquakes. So when one of my friends, Bobbi, reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in creating a chart for charity for Puerto Rico, I immediately said yes. This chart is the result.
I asked Bobbi to choose the charity for this, and she chose All Hands and Hearts. This charity has an excellent record of providing assistance where needed when natural disasters occur. Here is what they say about their mission and vision:
“All Hands and Hearts effectively and efficiently addresses the immediate and long-term needs of communities impacted by natural disasters. We communicate directly with local leaders and community members and then deploy our unique model of engaging volunteers to enable direct impact, helping to build safer, more resilient schools, homes and infrastructure.
Through community and volunteer engagement, we focus on helping families recover faster after natural disasters using our Smart Response strategy. In doing so, we strengthen both our volunteers and the communities in which we serve”
I was also impressed by how much of their donations go towards helping those in need. Not a penny is wasted – .96 of every dollar is spent on their programs. Click on the link to learn more about their financial record.
My pledge to you is that all of the money I raise through sales of this chart will go to this charity except for what PayPal takes out for their transaction fees. I will keep you updated on how much we have raised. I encourage you to share this page with your friends, so we can all spread the word and the love.
