    Want to help us transform hearts and change the world?

    As you can tell, our website is under construction, but it is fully functional. We are looking forward to presenting The Change a Heart Foundation to the world in the coming weeks. Below, you can see some of the transformational work we have done in the past few months. 

    Listed below are some of our upcoming projects. If you feel led to contribute, please do so below.

    * In the coming months, we are trying to finish financing our water well in Madagascar, Africa. Currently, we are $3,100 short of our $5,100 goal. The water well is going to change 1,000 + lives and transform an entire community for years to come. 

    * In September, we are leading a team of 20+ individuals back to Mexico for our 8th "Transformation Trip" to help build 6 more homes for families in need. In the past year, we have been able to build 7 homes because of our generous donors, teammates, and partners. Transformation Trip 8.0 is our largest project to date and we are actively looking for individuals and corporations to sponsor the 6 homes.

    * In the coming months, we'll also be building more "Light Houses." In short, a "Light House" is a revolutionary portable shelter for our brothers and sisters living outdoors. Equipped with solar power, a portable shower, a tablet, pillow, blanket, and more, the "Light House" is an affordable and effective way of removing our brothers and sisters from the elements, and placing them in a safe and stable environment to help them restore dignity and rediscover their purpose all while acting as a home base as they transition back into society.

    please Help us build a water well in Madagascar, Africa!

    $100.00 raised
    GOAL: $100.00


    TODAY, there are over 700 million people who do not have access to clean water. Over 2,000 children under the age of 5, will die TODAY because they lack access to clean water and sanitation. I'm committing to raising $100, along with 50 other individuals, to construct a water well for those in dire need in Madagascar, Africa. 

    Background: The Change a Heart Foundation (this website) is committed to changing lives, both locally and globally, through it's many initiatives. They believe the best way to change the world is to "Change a Heart." This project is a part of their clean water initiative, "River Water." River, is the name of the daughter of CHF's founder (Todd). In the same way that River has brought a new-found sense of hope, purpose, and life to Todd, he hopes to do the same for men, women and children all across the world through "River Water." This project will do just that for 1,000+ people and generations to come.

    Logistics: CHF has partnered with International Aid Mission (IAm) to fulfill all the logistics. The founder of IAm and Todd have been fiends for many years and plan to collaborate on such projects for years to come. IAm will secure the site, work with the locals agencies to construct the water well, perform maintenance to insure longevity, and provide pictures and GPS upon completion of the project (1 month after we send the money). 

    The Bigger Picture: Collaboration is key in all aspects of life. The reality is, we are all connected. We are all much more alike than we are different. The idea that 50 individuals from all different backgrounds, races, and beliefs can come together to serve/help a community of 1,000 + people, is such a powerful example of the greatness humanity can achieve when we work together.
