Chula Vista sits just south of San Diego and only miles from the US/Mexico border. For many residents, it's unconscionable that less than an hour's drive to the south, impoverished children and adults suffer and die because they lack the most basic necessities. How can frostbite and malnutrition exist within arm's reach of one of the fastest-growing cities in California? Locals Judd and Debra Wheeler and their great team of volunteers at Hilarious Givers are tackling this issue head-on. They do amazing work, collecting everything from mattresses and clothes to food and appliances and distributing them to the neediest they can find -- all on a shoestring budget. My family and friends are proud to support Hilarious Givers and couldn't endorse them more strongly for support from others.

It's so impressive how Judd and Deborah Wheeler collect and then distribute food, bedding and all types of household effects each and every day. I can tell you that it is pretty impressive to witness first hand their devotion and commitment! I would encourage anyone to spend a weekend with them, as I was able to do, and see first hand all of the good that is being generated from this warehouse and office. Like I say, it's just pretty impressive. There are countless people who benefit and dare I say depend on the Hilarious Givers doing what they do best.

I have seen the good work that Hilarious Givers has done since its inception & I am proud to be a donor to their cause. There is a constant need for help to the less fortunate in our world & we all need to give more of ourselves, for goodness sakes. It's food for the soul.

This is a marvelous organization that demonstrated a knowledge for the love of our God. They go into Mexico and feed the hungry, provide clothing and goods for families, and help people with general living conditions. They also show great love for their volunteers and make them feel valued and honored. It has been a privilege to have been able to donate to this organization. I wish I could do more.

Worthy organization that regularly feeds the hungry and provides other needs such as bedding and clothing. Also includes people and family in the community to assist with taking items and giving emotional support to the people in need. The natural warmth of the leadership of Hilarious Givers draws others to want to contribute either financially, physically or both.

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

I've seen photos of the way they help feed children and adults with activities of daily living such as feeding, clothing and providing basic needs.

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

I would love to see Hilarious Givers grow and increase it's presence in the US and Mexico.

BUT you never know I may go to California one day and see what I could do in person for this wonderful charity.. PROPS to Judd and Debra..
