I've been a Board member at Touching Heart for over two years now, and have seen firsthand the difference that our programs make. Children come away inspired and empowered to continue giving and make a difference in the world. Now more than ever, the world needs programs like Kids on a Mission and School on a Mission to help create the next generation of compassionate leaders.

I met Helen in our kid's school back in 2010. Our discussions started on how Helen and her daughter Taylor had founded Touching Heart. I was completely floored by the wonderful idea of 'kids helping kids'. One thing led to other and then there was no looking back.
It is a special feeling to be part of fun fairs, Kids on a Mission events, work shops and annual golf. Knowing that a small act of kindness can bring big difference in somebodies life, was a huge inspiration and motivation. My kids are hugely inspired and have grown up with the idea of Touching Heart. They both have been part of various events and have run their own birthday missions to help kids in need. My husband is an ardent supporter of this novel cause. For me and my family Touching Heart is not just an organization, it's a 'way of life'.

Touching Heart is an inspiration to our young generation. It beautifully brings out generosity and care in our children while keeping up with their new era of technology and interest. So proud to have this program in our school and whether it's projects or just a dose from the after school activities- its vision stays within their heart. Keep up the great work!

I've worked with lovely ladies Helen and Sumona from Touching Heart. They have the best intentions and spirit. Children are most innocent and open hearted and they make the best donors. A beautiful value to share from a young age. My children have participated and donated their gifts.

Touching Heart is a great organization for kids to learn about giving their time to help less fortunate kids in our community. My son participated at his school as before school program and truly enjoyed the sessions whether It was making sandwiches or scarves for children in need. Not only he wants continue to parcipate in this program but his six years old brother also wants to join which was wonderful to hear.

I always believe kids are natural givers, they just need a media to show their talent! TouchingHeart is an excellent platform for kids to learn this beautiful act, the act of giving and generosity which in the future helps them to be a better person! My daughter participated in few TouchingHeart activities and I notice she feels empowered after every event! She is very motivated and says giving increases her self confidence and self esteem! Many of my friends and their family are actively involved in this cause and by witnessing what they can do, my kids realize they have a power to make a positive difference!
