“Helping people develop skill sets to be successful in life I think is important and it really fired me up to do that. But to bring a child home who’s an orphan… to bring that joy to a family… boy, that’s hard to beat,” JT says.
Both Hands helps families fundraise for their adoptions. A family gathers a team of volunteers and Both Hands coaches them to coordinate a service project fixing up a widow’s home.
The family and their team send letters to raise sponsorship for their day of service. The funds raised help an orphan be adopted into a forever family! As of summer 2017, Both Hands has helped families raise over $8M in funds towards adopting children, resulting in over 840 orphans finding a home and over 777 widows served. The impact has been widespread, with over 700 projects in 42 states!
