Giving Tuesday!

It's Tuesday again and you know what that means?  Yep...time to recognize another organization that is giving back in a big way!  This week we are introducing:

Hands 4 Hope Youth

They are an organization located in El Dorado Hills, California.  They are group of kids, from kindergarten through 12th grade that help out local people in need.  They organize food drives (they call them "blitzes") for local food banks, make blankets and lunches for the homeless, provide "boutique style" shopping for low income people, collect and make soldier care packages, as well as other things. 

Here is their company overview (from their Facebook page):
Youth Making A Difference, dba Hands4Hope, is a non-profit, non-denominational, youth driven outreach organization based in El Dorado Hills, CA, and was founded in February 2008. The organization's mission is to make a difference in the lives of others with positive actions, kind words, and visions of hope. Hands4Hope is comprised of youth volunteers ranging in age from kindergarten through 12th grade, who mostly reside in El Dorado Hills; however, the organization plans to expand its volunteer base from both Sacramento and El Dorado Counties.

Hands4Hope is led by a Youth Advisory Council, which is mentored by a Parent Advisory Council. The organization currently has over 200 youth members and eight public school partners to assist with outreach efforts. The organization strives to continually encourage youth to understand areas of need in their communities where they can make a difference and have a positive impact, offer opportunities for leadership development, create awareness of others' circumstances, inspiring compassion and action, and support and/or fill voids in local outreach efforts.

These kids are amazing!  What a wonderful way to raise our children, to be good citizens and care for others.  Visit their web site to see more of what they are doing and past projects...and if you live in the area and have kids...get them involved! 

Hats off to Hands4Hope!
