Awesome organization! We're so thankful to partner with them. Debra and Judd are always ready to serve 24/7. These people truly give their lives to serve others I Mexico, and by doing this they've helped us provide for food, blankets and toys to literally thousands of people. That work they do and the passion they have truly encourages us and inspire us to continue serving others.

Hilarious Givers has helped us clothe and feed hundreds of families in an impoverished colony in Baja called colonia 89. Not only are they generous in what the give, they are also generous with their time. Each time we visit they are glad to see us and give us what we need to help others. We are so grateful for their ministry.

Hilarious Givers has helped us greatly, at Morada del Nino Jesus, to feed 30 children whose parents are either dead, in prison, unknown whereabouts, or children whose mothers can't afford to feed them.
Wonderful, wonderful Christian people!!!!! Loving, trustworthy, hard workers, patient, generous, kind, caring people.

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

receiving food that helps us feed children who don't have a family or whose family can't support them.

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

just say THANK YOU, Hilarious Givers!

Hilarious Givers has provided us with food on a monthly basis to share with the poor in Mexico while teaching about Jesus. They also were able to provide us with chairs for the new Calvary Chapel church that we are pastoring in Tijuana. The directors, Debra and Judd, go out of there way to make sure that everyone can receive the items and their hearts for the people of Mexico are pure and generous.

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

Monthly when I see the amount of food that they prepare on pallets for people to pick up and distribute in Mexican with orphanages and other ministries. I personally know many of the ministries that receive the food and know how much of the food is being used to help children and the poor.

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

Provide support for the directors so that they could manage this ministry on a full-time basis without responsibilities to another full-time job. It is very difficult for them to handle this growing ministry and an 8 to 5 job as well.

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

The ability to help people with their physical needs (hunger) while helping them with their spiritual need for Jesus.

I have been receiving food for hungry children in Mexico through Hilarious Givers for the past year. This organization is fantastic. Judd Wheeler is an amazing manager and also meets us with a smile and a heart to serve no matter how tired he is serving so many people and working full time as well. We have been able to use the food that they have given us to feed children in six different breakfast feeding program in east Tijuana, helping over 250 children. These programs are all run through Christian churches and many of the children would go to school without breakfast if it were not for these programs. There is a real need for food for hungry children in these poorer colonias. More important, the children are taught about God and His love for them. We have also been able to distribute bags of assorted food to single mothers trying to raise their children on very little income; and large families that cannot provide the food for all their children. All food is distributed with the Word of God. None of this would be possible without Hilarious Givers and the work they are doing. The very first time I met Judd he brought 1,000 pounds of food to our ministry bodega in Mexico and reviewed the ministry that we are doing and how they can help. I believe Judd knows the people he is giving food to and does his very best to make sure that the food is being used as the donors requested. My experience with Hilarious Givers is that they are professional, punctual, generous, understanding, ready to serve and intelligent. Over this year I have come to know Judd and Debra as friends as well as partners in the food crisis in Mexico. Many people are thanking God for the ministry of Hilarious Givers!

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

feeding programs located in the poorer neighborhoods of east Tijuana. I have seen children with thin, hollow faces grow cheeks with smiles and hearts for Jesus.

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

Provide more staff so that the owners could do their job easier. Provide more food for children such as cereal, milk, eggs and other powdered products.

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

Judd and Debra and their hearts for the people. Also, seeing happy children that have full tummies and know Jesus.

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

Judd - Director, Debra - Administration, Jim - Service

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

Feed many more hungry children in many more countries and spread the gospel to help grow a generation for Jesus!

Ways to make it better...

The owners didn't have to work so hard that they get really tired.

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

Staffing, following up on how the food is being used, screening recipients.

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

Help this organization any way you can and thank God for them!

Several of the churches I work with are served by Hilarious Givers ministry. They have a heart for the hungry children in these communities and work unbelievably hard at making sure that we have food to distribute to needy families. They are a God Honouring blessing to our ministries here in Baja California.

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

watching churches hand out 100+ bags of food to hungry people as well as feed children daily in feeding kitchens.

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

their integrity and desire to help.

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

hardworking, but tired!

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

probably use every last dime to feed kid sin orphanages and poor neighbourhoods
