On October 9, 2021, Heart to Heart International hosted the inaugural Applause fundraising event. This annual fundraiser celebrates and benefits Heart to Heart International’s mission and was designed to celebrate all who have given so much to Heart to Heart International.
We are grateful for everyone who attended both in person and virtually.
In-person attendees were able to sample food from around the world, specifically from regions where HHI has worked.
Attendees were also able to experience different aspects of Heart to Heart International’s work, including checking out the mobile medical unit and the rest of the disaster response fleet, assembling hygiene kits to be will distributed to people in need, touring the warehouse, and learning more about our laboratory programming.
Our award recipients were honored during the program:
