It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
Life’s persistent and most urgent question is
‘What are you doing for others?’

CHILDREN’S DREAM FUND
Meet Dream Child, Alyssa!
Alyssa is 5 years old and full of spunk! When Alyssa was born, she was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy and has been living at a special children’s hospital since. At the hospital Alyssa is the ring-leader of her group of friends. She checks on everyone to make sure they have the right toys to play with and spends time with the kids that aren’t as mobile as she is.
That’s more than the populations of New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago combined. During the school week, most of these children depend on the federal free and reduced meal program their school offers. Sometimes, the meals at school are the only ones they get. When the school closes it doors on Friday afternoon, many of these children go home to empty cupboards and empty bellies for 65 hours until they return to school on Monday morning.
Millions of children are in need of extra support, guidance, and love in our country. They are experiencing the difficulties of poverty, abuse, negative environment and many other areas of distress. Believe it or not, many children in K-5 are even experiencing PTSD because of their surroundings.
Thank you for your love and support,
The Hands4Hope Team
