I am a RDH(registered dental hygienist) from the state of Washington who has traveled throughout the world for a number of years with a number of non-profits. I have just returned from my 7th trip with Hearts In Motion and would recommend this organization over all others I have experience with. The organization is extremely well run and it is evident that their primary concern our the lives of those they are called to serve whether in the United States of abroad.
I am also the co-founder and president of my own non-profit and old all others to the same standards with which ours is run.

I have been volunteering with Hearts In Motin (based in Highland, Indiana), and traveling to Guatemala for over 10 years. I assist in the medical clinics, primarily checking the vision of our under-resourced visitors. We give away, free of charge, eyeglasses, reading glasses and sunglasses that have been donated by our friends, families and through special collections at our churches, schools and other contacts. Being able to give a young mother eyeglasses so she can read to her child, or to a father so he can make a living for his family is an amazing opportunity. Hearts In Motion has given me an opportunity to change lives for the better, including my own. I have been able to see what is truly important -- to help others, to show love and compassion to those who have little. It makes me appreciate the things in life that have nothing to do with money or status.
