Donate your car to Blessing Hands

We can use your old clunker to raise money for Blessing Hands, and you get to count the full resale value of the car on your income tax deductions. Give your car to us and we will transform it into tuitions. A student went to college on the value of this car. 





Share the needs of the Blessing Hands students with others:

Your club, church, service club, family, or work group might be interested in helping Chinese students. We will send you a PowerPoint presentation. You can be trained to talk about our students and their needs. We also have brochures you can use with your presentation. Groups asking for Blessing Hands presentations in your area can be referred to you. Use the contact us page to make requests for supplies.

Use PayPal with your Facebook or MySpace account to raise support:

You can raise support from your online friends for Blessing Hands students. Use the new PayPal fundraising badge to raise money right from your personal page.

Volunteer with Blessing Hands:


Offer your special talents for Chinese translation, fundraising, commercial art, computers, or secretarial work. Some work can be done by email, so it doesn't matter where you live. We especially need volunteer grant writers.


Churches, Clubs, Groups, and Schools

Choose a School or Student to Support:

The power of many lets groups sponsor Blessing Hands students from a whole school or a college scholarship student. Match your school, class, or club with all the Blessing Hands students in a school in China or for a college scholarship for one student. Your brotherhood relationship will teach your group about service in other cultures and open a new window on the world for your sponsored students.

Sponsor a Humanitarian Trip to China:

Develop your own summer humanitarian tour to China with the assistance of Blessing Hands. We have had an eyeglass clinic and dental clinic and would like to more medical clinics, and other humanitarian offerings. Summer English camp volunteers or teaching English for a semester are other possibilities.

Ask a Blessing Hands Representative to speak to your group:

If you are interested in sponsoring Blessing Hands or having a fund raising activity through your church or service group, we will consider sending you a representative from Blessing Hands to inform your group.


                                           Youth Service Opportunities

Blessing Hands Interns 
When a Blessing Hands group goes to China, we sometimes consider taking a college student as our intern. These arrangements would have to be made through your university and would require you to provide most of your travel expenses yourself. College credit can sometimes be arranged. Service can be for a semester and result in a grade jointly given by your university and Blessing Hands. This arrangement can been done at Morehead State University presently.

                                                        Businesses

Many businesses will match their employee’s contributions to charities. Investigate to see if your employer offers this opportunity.

Contributions from business profits:

We receive Grants:

We have received grants from three different foundations. We display our information on Guidestar.org, a webpage that certifies non-profits. We welcome participation by foundation representatives in our activities, including travel to China.
