The Helping Society was created in the wake of Hurricane Maria, one of the most devastating natural disasters in America. Amidst the destruction, a group of go-getters set out to prove that even the greatest catastrophe can inspire great kindness. Today, we are fueled by such deep compassion and unyielding, positive energy, that our movement has become uncontainable.
Aiding men, women and children in their darkest hour, The Helping Society is bringing relief to the forgotten. Since its launch, our organization has worked around the clock to provide food, water, medical supplies and other humanitarian aid for disaster zones and remote, poverty-stricken communities.
Through strategic partnerships and in-depth research, The Helping Society is connecting key players and mobilizing projects in the areas of renewable energy, low-cost housing and green, sustainable living, to deliver short and long-term solutions for residents and business who have lost it all overnight.
In our first month of relief work, The Helping Society has collected, packed and is in the process of distributing over 800 lbs of pet food and supplies to animals in distress in Puerto Rico. And we’re just getting started. Please join us in bringing food, medicine and other relief, as well as helping pets mobilize with their owners out of disaster zones. “Animals deserve quality of life and normality in times of crisis too.”
United we are stronger, and this is specially true during times of crisis. The Helping Society is proud to work with many non-profit organizations (of all sizes) to mobilize aid, ship and distribute supplies, host events, fundraise, cross-promote and put great things in motion. If your group wishes to help, please join us!
Puerto Rico has been hit by one of the most devastating hurricanes in history, leaving 3.4 million US citizens in despair. Most of the Island is still without power, with scarce food and water, and there is an unprecedented health crisis. Thousands have lost their homes, and many parts of the island are still without communication or internet, making it impossible for many of us on the mainland to stay connected with their loved ones. The catastrophic flooding has continued well after the Hurricane and thousands now find themselves without a job or any income. Meanwhile, there is no way to know how many lives Maria has claimed.
To bring aid to communities in crisis, we must place ourselves in the center of unimaginable hardships. Scarcity of food, clean water, basic utilities and limited access to medical care are foreign concepts to most of us who can afford to read this today. The Helping Society and its volunteers are solely driven by the support, hopes and strength that we receive from our network of donors and partners. Please consider making a donation (and get in touch to share your ideas) so we can keep helping others and hand-delivering a bit of normalcy to otherwise shattered lives.
