YOU MAKE a HAND to LEND a HAND. For every hand sent in, the Bezos Family Foundation will donate $1.90—up to $500,000—to Save the Children’s programs empowering youth in Nicaragua and Indonesia to rise into a life they dream for themselves.
Why hands? Hands are how we lift each other up, how we connect, how we work, how we give, and how we receive. Hands represent who we are and the unique contribution we all have to fight poverty. https://www.youtube.
If you cannot attend the MLK Day at the Wing, make and decorate Caring Hands at home and bring them to Harper to the CYCLONE GIVING TREE. YAC will collect the hands and mail them to the Bezos Foundation. YAC will be making hands until April 21-23, Global Youth Service Days! Students from all over the world and Boys and Girls Club at Memorial Park will be making hands with us those days!.
Why $1.90 The children facing poverty in Nicaragua and Indonesia LIVE on less than $1.90 a day.
