"We all have a heart, so share some of yours."
Extended Hugs is a nonprofit business committed to supporting those who are unfairly denied the firm foundation needed for a successful life.
We strive to resolve the painful experiences endured by thousands who often get overlooked by society. Those who are unfortunate, but not so much so that there is a high demand to rectify the problem.
The people who often need the help may appear to be doing just fine. In many cases, their hardship is due to some sort of extreme circumstance that they were not financially prepared for.
These same individuals when seeking assistance, are often turned away by large organizations because they may not be “desperate” enough or meet certain strict requirements.
Extended Hugs makes no attempts to save the world. However, through the support of generous people, we know we can change lives.
We serve to aid vulnerable members of the community who may be struggling financially due to marginalization, high cost of education, and chronic/terminal illness.
