Hello, over 18 years I have been working in the mental health field in Philadelphia. This year has been very challenging and I felt that something had to be done to help many families in need. So with the support of family and very close friends we worked together to create H.U.G.S. (Humanity United 4 Global Support) to help the most vulnerable communities during this pandemic. During our time working together, we have witnessed the needs of families who cannot access federal or government aid due to not meeting the necessary requirements. This caused many of these families to literally beg us for help to feed their children. It is vital and urgent that we provide food, assistance, and moral support to help these families in need in all parts of the world. We came up with the idea of hosting fundraising events with the support of the Zumba® community. These events called Zumbathons ® , help raise money to support these families and give people access to dance with Zumba® instructors in different countries virtually through the Zoom platform. All proceeds raised will go towards this cause and any amount is appreciated. Thank you for your generosity. Your contribution brings hope to millions of people. (H.U.G.S. is a certified non-profit organization)
