    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 in traditional or simplified Chinese or English. You can be trained to talk about our students and their needs. We also have brochures in both simplified and traditional Chinese or English that 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, pen pal services, or secretarial work. Some work can be done by e-mail, so it doesn’t matter where you live. We especially need a volunteer grant writer.


    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 would like to see water projects, 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 (If we have a volunteer in your area).


                                               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.
