All Hands and Hearts

All Hands Volunteers and Happy Hearts Fund initially joined forces in Nepal in 2015 to rebuild disaster-resilient schools in the wake of the devastating Earthquake. Recognizing the synergy that could come from combining these two strong and disaster-focused nonprofits, David Campbell and Petra Nemcova led efforts to combine around the “Smart Response” motto. In fall 2017, they announced their two organizations had merged to form All Hands and Hearts.

We are an organization committed to effectively and efficiently addressing the immediate and long-term needs of global communities impacted by disasters. All Hands and Hearts arrives early for first response and stays late to rebuild schools and homes in a disaster-resilient way.

Tongva Tarax at Paxaavxa Land Conservancy

The Tongva people have been in Los Angeles County for thousands of years. However, we have not had access to land since colonization. The Tongva Taraxat Paxaava Conservancy, which roughly translates to “the people’s land” is the very first plot of land returned to the original people of Los Angeles.

For generations we have been pushed out of Los Angeles by high rent, we have had to ask permission to have traditional gathering relationship with our plant relatives, and we have had to pay fees to hold ceremony and space inside of our own ancestral lands. The Tongva Taraxat Paxaavxa Land Conservancy will help begin the healing process we need by giving tribal community members access to free housing on their native land, give access to gathering without permission from outsiders, and a space to have community time and ceremonies in privacy.

Our vision is to rematreate the land to California native plants and Tongva people. We are and will continue to be run by Tongva people.
