2022 Charity Collection
The charity choice for 2023 will be announced in the fall. In the meantime, you can read about last year's donation recipient.
Each year Zombie Pumpkins donates a portion of its profits to charity. Members who chose the Monster V.I.P. plan in 2022 had a portion of their payment go to All Hands and Hearts.
The following is the letter Zombie Pumpkins received after submitting our donation in December 2022:
Dear Ryan and Zombie Pumpkins,
On behalf of our entire team and the communities we serve, I want to thank you for your generous gift. Your commitment to community inspired, volunteer-powered disaster relief makes a difference!
Through the generosity of supporters like you, All Hands and Hearts has directly assisted over 1.2 million people whose lives have been disrupted by earthquakes, fires, and storms of every kind. In these and other humanitarian crises, we are devoted to focusing on the greatest needs, and collaborating with local, national, and international partners in solving for the long term.
Again, thank you for including All Hands and Hearts in your charitable giving.
Chief Executive Officer
All Hands and Hearts is an organization committed to efficiently addressing the immediate and long-term needs of global communities impacted by disasters. They arrive early for first response and stay late to rebuild schools and homes in a disaster-resilient way.
Our donations were designated to the following programs:
Hurricane Ian Relief
Hurricane Ian has created a tremendous need for support and volunteers to help these communities recover. Staff and volunteers are on the ground in Florida, responding to the devastating impacts, and working with local authorities to identify critical disaster relief needs.
This includes performing chainsaw work to remove fallen and hazardous trees, removing debris, mucking, gutting and doing mold sanitation to get community members back into their homes as soon as possible.
Ukraine Crisis Relief
All Hands and Hearts has partnered with Save Ukraine, a Ukrainian charitable foundation, to support safe evacuations of the most vulnerable children and families. Partners are constructing transitional shelters for families within Ukraine, and volunteer teams are preparing collective shelters to house those who flee to Poland.
The focus is on providing safe, adequate shelter for refugees - including winterizing current shelters, and adding hygienic water and sanitation facilities. Further quality of life efforts may include providing skills training, and employment opportunities for Ukrainian refugees and shelter residents.
