Project Final Update!

Thank you, donors!

Thanks to your generosity, the Touching Hands “#ShowOfHands” campaign was a success! You helped us exceeded the initial goal of $10K in support within the first month, as well as the increased fundraising goal of $12.5K. Through the generosity of 77 donors, #ShowOfHands has raised $13,519.00. With the amount raised, we are able to fully fund 6 teaching missions, as well as provide life-changing hand care to patients around the world.

We cannot thank you enough for your support of hand and upper extremity care around the world. Keep up to date with our initiatives by following us on social media and the Touching Hands website. Tell how hand care has impacted you or your patients with the #ShowofHands hashtag.

Project Final Update!

Thank you, donors!

Today, we celebrate our success in exceeding our $10,000 goal in support of the GlobalGiving campaign “Give 100 U.S. Patients Life-Changing Hand Surgery” from Touching Hands and the American Foundation for Surgery of the Hand.

Because of you, we were able to support 7 Hand Days in 2018 and confirm 9 locations for 2019 so far - including three new locations! Your generosity enabled our hand surgeons to provide free hand surgery for patients in their community who do not have access to hand care, across the U.S.

As we reflect on the progress we made over the last year, we look to the future with our new campaign “#ShowOfHands: Help patients Use Their Hands Again.” #ShowOfHands, will bring us closer to providing every patient in need with access to specialized and affordable care. By promoting #ShowOfHands, we will be able to share more success stories from happy, healthy patients around the world! To learn more, visit the  new project page!

Make sure to keep an eye on our social media channels, to support a Hand Day near you!

2019 Hand Day Updates!

We are excited to be kicking off 2019 with the goal of 20 Hand Days across the U.S! Our first confirmed sites are Salt Lake City, UT, Nashville, TN, San Francisco, CA, Atlanta, GA, Dayton, OH, Colorado Springs, CO, Memphis, TN, and Bryan, TX. If you are interested in hosting a Hand Day in your community, or learning about how to get involved, please visit our website

As we celebrate our progress, we want to share a video from our volunteers at Kettering Health Network in Dayton, Ohio. Their clip shows the impact our Hand Days can have on a community, and inspires us to continue to do more to provide free hand surgery. You can watch the video here

 Thank you once again to our donors, corporate partners, and volunteers for making this possible. Keep up to date with our progress by visiting the THP website
