2Hands is not, and never will be, an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) organization. While many have urged us to pursue this designator to imply more ‘Credibility’, we want you to know that there are not many places you can go to find more ‘Credibility’ than 2Hands. We have one goal…… To connect everyday people and families in need with everyday people and families who can help….. and work tirelessly in this endeavor.
Unlike many 501(c)(3) organizations that claim non-profit status while bankrolling high dollar salaries, 2Hands is kept afloat by coffee can donations from the same volunteers that tend to the postings we receive each and every day.
We run no ads and make no profit from the operation of 2Hands. We maintain this resource without expectations of thanks or recognition but simply because it needs to be done. Which is the mind-set all should have when helping each other either through 2Hands, or in your everyday life.
As a beloved long time volunteer who recently passed away from a heroic battle with cancer, who connected people from a stool in her kitchen (thousands of people by the way) would ask, ‘What other responsibility do we have?’
