Both Hands helps adopting families raise money - while the adopting family helps a widow in need.  The Both Hands project was created around the scripture James 1:27 "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress..." 

So we have the orphan (our daughter in Ethiopia) and now we find a widow. 

We'll need a team of volunteers to help us send out letters asking for sponsorships.  Rather than running a 5k race or golfing, we'll be asking people to sponsor us and our team to spend an entire day making repairs to the home of a widow.

Both Hands has completed 36 projects in 13 different states, and we were just accepted into their program this afternoon!  We are so excited.  We know this could be the most rewarding experience we'll have while waiting for our referral.

There are lots of roles in this project, so everyone who wants to help out can!  Some people we'll need:
  • A core team of dedicated volunteers (we're looking for about 15 people) to address envelopes and work on the widow's house.
  • Someone with construction/carpentry experience.
  • Someone responsible for getting food and drink to the project (possibly asking local stores and restaurants for donations).
  • Someone to make sure all of the waivers are signed, collected and mailed to Both Hands.
  • A Clean-Up Crew to come in later in the afternoon during our work day.
  • A videographer
  • Possibly someone with landscaping experience (depending on the work we need to do).

    There is so much to do and we are so excited to get started!  If you are interested in being on our team or helping in any way, please let us know.  We're going to need LOTS of help!
