Our FaffCon 9 Charity is Comic Relief USA’s – Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief. An American charity using the power of entertainment to drive positive change to help those who need it most. Campaigns include Red Nose Day, Idol Gives Back, and Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief.
Raising Funds to Help Those Affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, Comic Relief USA will manage the Hand in Hand Hurricane Relief Fund. Comic Relief USA is responsible for collecting your incredible donations. They’ll be managing and distributing grants through the Hand in Hand Hurricane Relief Fund. Proceeds will benefit a number of charity partners, including the Rebuild Texas Fund, United Way of Greater Houston, Habitat for Humanity, Save the Children, Direct Relief, Feeding Texas and The Mayor’s Fund for Hurricane Harvey Relief (administered by the Greater Houston Community Foundation). Together, they’re working to ensure those hit hardest by these disasters have the help they need.
At FaffCon 8 participants contributed throughout the weekend, culminating with an exciting last-minute boost to round us up to an even $8k as part of FaffCon’s tradition of missions of leaving a positive footprint in each of its host cities by making a donation to a local non-profit.
