I'm honored to know Debra and Judd. I don't know any other people more caring than this amazing couple. Hilarious Givers have helped so many people and I hope to participate in the future by donating my time with Hilarious Givers!

Judd and Debra are amazing examples of people who follow their passion, thus automatically making the world a better place and making the lives of many better as well. I cannot express enough how impressed and humbled I am by them.

I'm thankful I discovered this wonderful family-oriented outreach to the hungry and poor. The Wheeler's ROCK! (My two young grandkids had a rewarding and meaningful time helping stock and load pallets with food at the warehouse.)

Since I met this wonderful and giving couple Debra and Judd from Hilarious Givers, with not doubts, I decided to start donating my time to help with everything I can possibly do for this organization. I have seen the orphans, the poor and the elderly getting resources of food, clothes, blankets and mattresses but most important knowing our SAVIOR JESUS.
I'm honor to be part of the volunteers for Hilarious Givers!

I have been on a mission for Hilarious Givers where they gave clothes, toiletries and toys to the less fortunate children in Mexico both in and out of the orphanages. Food is also provided. I have seen where homes were built for those that could not afford it. The children would ask to trade in their toy for a jacket because they needed the jacket more. It warms my heart to know I can help out others. It is also a great experience for kids and teenagers to volunteer and really learn to appreciate what they have in their lives and not take for granted the home, love, and support that they receive. I will continue to donate my time and any items that I no longer need to Hilarious Givers. It is also great that they not only help out those in Mexico but those in the US as well with help with mattresses, food and other supplies. Whenever someone needs help, they go above an beyond to try and answer the call for help.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing how thankful everyone is for the food, clothes, toiletries and other items they receive from Hilarious Givers.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Thankful for all that I have! Makes me realize that I don't need the newest gadget or so many clothes... I can do with much less and try to remember that each day.

Hilarious Givers is a wonderful resource for helping the children of Baja GiverCalifornia. I get food and other items from Hilarious Givers and take them to qn orphanage with about 70 children. The donations of food make a great difference in the children's quality of life.
I highly recommend supporting Hilarious Givers.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

distributing food to hungry children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

like to see more people volunteering. Some people have time, some people have skills, some people have money... everyone can do something to help.

It is hard to fully grasp the need for food until you personally witness a plate of food given and it is literally licked clean. It breaks your heart. I am involved with several locations that their HOPE is to have one meal every other day. Some are very young children (even infants) and others are bedridden and cannot even fend for themselves. To die not of their illness but from malnutrition. In Mark 8 pity was plentiful, but only compassionate action could meet the needs. Jesus’ compassion was part of His passion. It culminated upon Calvary. As in Jesus’ day, the multitude is around us still. There is the multitude of misfortune, disadvantage, outcasts, sinners, and the bewildering multitudes who have nothing to eat. Pity looks and says, “How awful.” Compassion weeps and says, “I’ll help.” Pity looks from afar. COMPASSION rolls up its sleeves and pitches in to help. Pity waits for a convenient time. COMPASSION knows no office hours. Pity is plentiful and cheap. COMPASSION is rare and costly. Jesus looked on the multitudes and said, “I have compassion.” Hilarous Givers HAS COMPASSION and those who support them and enable those such as I to go out and make a world of difference AND let them see how far Christ love reaches. I have had crisis situation after crisis situation and to allow me to empower those that need help I need help from others such as Hilarious Givers who has stepped up and allowed me to start development while providing relief.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

TJ, Mexico

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Seek out more donors. The need is great.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Compassionate

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Friendly and Compassionate with a heart to serve the Lord.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Make even a greater difference for the Kingdom of God.

Ways to make it better...

N/A

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

More Donors/Supporters.

One thing I'd also say is that...

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
