Eshan and Riya are being recognized for their history of service to others and for the outstanding acts of goodness they continue to perform through the organization they founded, Help Humanity Today. Their caring hearts and innovative spirits are making great impacts on children, adults, and families. They raised funds to aid refugees in Belgium, Greece, and Bulgaria; collected sports equipment for underprivileged children in Africa; and have partnered with local organizations such as Cloud Covered Streets, Matthews Crossing Food Bank, and Welcome to America Project to extend their reach.

Malaina is being recognized for creating and operating a free lending library for neighborhood children. By sharing her own books and those donated by her supporters, she is empowering children, whose lives are enriched with every word they read, every book they complete. Her caring heart and innovative spirit are making an impact on young readers, who are discovering worlds of wonder and enchantment in every book she offers.

Congratulations to Eshan, Riya, and Malaina!

Hurricane Harvey, a Category 4 hurricane, made landfall in Texas on Friday, August 25. It hit the first week of school, severely damaging schools, closing classrooms and utterly destroying precious school supplies and educational materials, affecting students of Houston Independent School District.

Yours Humanly took the lead in providing 500 fully packed school backpacks to elementary school students who attend Peck Elementary and Durkee Elementary in Houston, Texas. We sent the students back to school with brand new backpacks and the supplies they need to continue their studies: notebooks, pencils, markers, rulers, sharpeners, paper, glue sticks, folders, crayons, and other critical school supplies.

We express our sincere thanks and gratitude to Rotary Club of Walnut Creek, Dixon Ticonderoga, Cogenics Consulting Group, and Go Pro for sponsoring this initiative. We would also like to thank all individual donors, volunteers, and supporters, for their time and contributions.
