Giving Tuesday is upon us once again! In the spirit of giving, The Motley Fool has selected an outstanding organization to partner with this holiday season. We’re proud to announce our partnership with All Hands and Hearts – Smart Response.
Who are they? All Hands and Hearts’ mission is to “efficiently and effectively address the immediate and long-term needs of communities impacted by natural disasters.” All Hands and Hearts provides skilled and unskilled volunteers in areas of natural disaster – like the Foolanthropy trip following Hurricane Harvey earlier this year. With the help of local people, this organization works to create a long-term relief plan for rebuilding safe and resilient schools, homes, and other community infrastructure.
Why do we love them? At The Motley Fool, we’re investors. We like to see businesses (or in this case, an organization) with strong leadership, transparent financials, and community ties. All Hands and Hearts (formerly known as All Hands Volunteers) has a 4-out-of-4 star rating on Charity Navigator, with a 96.66/100 score, a score that speaks volumes to the strength and integrity of this organization. As volunteers in Houston, Fools were amazed by the quality and quantity of work that was accomplished.
How can you help? Visit give.fool.com to learn more about our campaign. In the spirit of #GivingTuesday, the co-founder of All Hands and Hearts, David Campbell, and long-time volunteer Tom Young are matching donations, up to $100,000, until 11:59 p.m. TONIGHT. Please consider donating today to make your contribution go twice as far. If you’re an investor, you can donate stock; email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.

The Motley Fool is proud to serve alongside All Hands and Hearts this holiday season and beyond. We hope you’ll consider making a generous donation to this worthy cause. Thanks in advance for your support!
