  • Overview:
  • All Hands Volunteers (All Hands) is a US-based 501(c)3 dedicated to assisting communities affected by disaster. Founded by David Campbell in 2005, All Hands has gained national prominence by providing a platformthrough the effective application of our mission, which is:to enable volunteers to provide assistance to communities affected by disasters. This channels the energy and spirit of service that volunteers bring by connecting them with unmet homeowner needs following a disaster. Since 2005, All Hands has successfully coordinated 27 disaster-relief projects around the globe. We have provided assistance to over 25,000 families impacted by disaster by empowering 5,867 volunteers from over 40 countries.

    To accomplish our mission, All Hands takes a unique and flexible approach to disaster relief by effectively blending two key elements: the incorporation of Volunteer-Driven Direct Service Responseand, when requested,the implementation of a Recovery Coordination Center. These two elements present a highly effective way to allow people to recover from a disaster more quickly.

  • History:
  • In 2005, our founder David Campbell flew to Thailand after seeing the devastating effects of the 2004 South East Asian tsunami. He
    traveled there to see what he could do to help.
    After being turned down by aid organizations that weren’t interested
    in spontaneous unaffiliated volunteers, David organized a group with
    the sole purpose of connecting those who wanted to help with those
    who needed it. After raising more than $100,000, they began
    rebuilding five villages. Recognizing the power of true volunteerism,
    David founded All Hands Volunteers. It’s with this history that we
    serve communities in need all across the globe, with an emphasis on
    flexibility, agility and open mindedness.
