Why Shine On Humanity

Can you imagine watching your whole life's work burning to the ground, completely swallowed up by flood waters, ripped apart by earthquakes or tornadoes, slide away by mud, or devoured by lava?

While there is always quick short-term assistance, the aftermath of such disasters may linger for weeks, months and even years.

Shine On Humanity is committed to helping people recover from the unimagineable hardships that an unexpected natural disaster may cause and these people may have no where else to turn and no other helping hand to reach out to them.

Why SHINE ON HUMANITY.... because a little light at the end of the tunnel is enough to give hope and keep us going.




Working together with integrity with volunteers, local businesses, corporate liasons and partnerships.
