Join us on Saturday, August 26th for the 3rd ANNUAL JAVA JIVE JOG to help raise money to help make these compassion missions possible!

Small Hands Big Hearts United is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to nurture children’s instinctive compassion to others and the world around them.  SHBHU creates additional community volunteer opportunities and also supports programs, called “compassion missions’ that are sparked by the minds of Small Handers and Ambassador Teens throughout the Triangle. These programs are made accessible logistically, financial, without time restraints and without age restrictions. SHBHU has a mission to help nurture the next kind, compassion and philanthropic generation leading the world.
