Little Helping Hands
November 19, 2012

I have been involved from the sidelines in Little Helping Hands since its founding in the Spring of 2009. What started out as a small grass-roots non-profit has today become the driving force of family volunteerism in Austin. This recently shared factoid from Little Helping Hands illustrates this: "Through September of this year (2012), we offered 37 volunteer opportunities each month on average, providing 1,400 families and 2,400 children with service activities..."

Little Helping Hands
April 29, 2011

As the husband of the Executive Director and Founder of this organization, I can say firsthand that this organization has been a game changer to our family's approach to life and what's important in the end. My two girls, who are 6 and 8, continue to learn the lesson of giving by doing and day after day appreciate more and more what they're fortunate enough to have.

The Great!

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

observing my children and how their entire outlook on life has changed. When your soon to be 8 year old voluntarily decides to have birthday guests donate to a dog shelter in lieu of gifts, then you know an organization has made a priceless impression on a participant.

Ways to make it better...

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

have it win the lottery. The lack of substantial funding for the organization is not only hindering its growth but potential. Unlike other non-profits, the mission of Little Helping Hands is not as tangible as maybe an organization fighting a childhood disease. Potential donors have to look beyond the surface and understand they are getting behind a cause that changes the landscape of volunteers for generations to come.
