I call Hilarious Givers "the Godmother organization," because like the miracle-working Godmother in children's tales, they provide so much--from food, to reading glasses; from beds to school uniforms--for many charity partners in the border-towns of Mexico. It all began with a mission to feed the starving children of migrant farmers who often had to abandon their kids for all to have a chance at survival. From there, the organization met with the self-sacrificing, loving people who assist other underserved segments of the Mexican population--young men deported back to Mexico though they've spent their whole lives in the US, children living in remote places who need eye exams, farm laborers who need a chance to live free instead of beholden to a system that keeps them perpetually enslaved. So much need just steps from our lives of abundance!
I traveled with Judd, the founder, just south of the border to meet with some of the charity partners. Our journey was an education to me--I had known there was need, but had no clue how much need there was. It showed me the bountiful love Judd had for all people, and just how enormous Hilarious Givers's calling is. As we drove along the coast, he explained how the migrant farming system works, what happens to special needs children, the fight for education of the native children...and on and on. He sees every problem, and by some miracle, Hilarious Givers has been able to address the needs of a wide swath of underserved people.
Every charity has a purpose--I'm not here to argue one is greater than the next. What if you found a charity with the purpose of supporting the good missions of other charities through resources and connections they dig up from home? What if you found a charity who runs so lean, they rely on donated warehouse space and office space so they could focus resources on the work? That's Hilarious Givers.
If there are angels on Earth, I think Hilarious Givers's charity partners would agree with me, they are the founders of Hilarious Givers.
