1. WHAT?

#HobbyPhilanthropy   #Voluntourism

Hand & Heart is a registered 501(c)3 Public Non-Profit Organization dedicated to the mobilization of resources and support for individuals and communities that are unable to fully prosper due to illness, disability, inequality, injustice and the violation of their human rights.  The core of our being is to create and grow the notion of #HobbyPhilanthropy – changing the world and making a difference through your favorite hobby or passion.  This notion enables changemakers to focus their efforts and creates a natural and intrinsically motivating connection between cause and volunteer/donor.  We then practice what we preach by combining this with #Voluntourism, traveling to a country for fun but giving back and learning while you are there, our founder’s number one hobby and passion.  We create opportunities to link worthy hobby-centered causes in developing countries with changemakers, voluntourists and philanthropists who shares the cause’s love or passion for that specific hobby.
