How It WorksBoth hands in
The saying goes “It takes a village to raise a child.” We believe it takes a village to bring one home, too! A Both Hands project starts with gathering around 10 family members and friends to serve as the foundation and support group of the project.
Widows are often overlooked in our communities and need help, but aren't sure how to find it. Both Hands guides a family through finding a widow in their community to serve for their project.
On the project day, the family serves a widow alongside their team of volunteers. We encourage tasks to be labor-focused, such as painting, cleaning, landscaping and de-cluttering. We also coach families on how to get local merchants to donate any needed supplies.
The family and their team raise sponsorship for their project day through sending letters and sharing their fundraising webpage, raising an average of $12,925 (2018). Both Hands fundraises support for its operating costs through private donors, so NO funds raised by a family and their team are deducted for Both Hands' operating costs.
We are only able to do what we do because of support from donors like you. We believe in the importance of adoption and are committed to doing everything we can to help bring families together. That’s why Both Hands doesn’t take out any administrative fees from donations to our projects. Let’s bring even more orphans into their forever families.
