Happy Hearts Fund - SchoolsConnect
In 2012, Happy Hearts Fund (HHF) committed to launching 15 new SchoolsConnect clubs on college campuses that spread awareness about disaster preparedness, as well as fundraise for the schools HHF has built in areas affected by natural disaster. With the SchoolsConnect program, HHF hopes to educate 250 student leaders who will disseminate that knowledge into their communities. To support these clubs, HHF will create a website that includes the necessary tools for starting a SchoolsConnect club, ideas for fundraising events and club meetings, and testimonials from existing clubs. HHF plans to launch these new clubs by forging relationships with educators and students already involved with programs and departments related to HHF's mission and work. In addition to increasing disaster preparedness domestically, HHF hopes SchoolsConnect clubs will raise enough funds to improve the education of 850 students in HHF schools.
