ABOUT ALL HANDS VOLUNTEERS: In 2005, All Hands Volunteers founder David Campbell flew to Thailand after seeing the devastating effects of the 2004 South East Asian tsunami. After learning that spontaneous unaffiliated volunteers were being turned down by aid organizations, David and a few friends 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 co-founded All Hands Volunteers in response to Hurricane Katrina.
