As the founder of HNH, I never imagined that the charity would grow this quickly and be so successful in helping ambulance and rescue heroes in so many countries.
In our first year of operation, we have made such a difference and we could not have done this without support from our heroes at home (you guys)! I also need to thank the executive of HNH who volunteer countless hours to the charity. They all dedicate their time and money to keep the momentum of HNH driving forward behind the scenes.... thanks so much for making my vision a reality! This includes our representatives in countries such as Fiji and Thailand. They certainly make things easier and I really do appreciate their dedication to improving ambulance and rescue within their home services.
Please consider donating to HNH (Donate Here) if you have a few spare dollars. Next year is going to be even bigger, with projects planned in five countries already.
Let's hope 2015 is the year for charities around the world to be very successful and keep making a difference to those who need a helping hand.
