The Edie Hand Foundation
The Edie Hand Foundation has been a supporter and active sponsor of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and that tradition continues today. Last year the Edie Hand Foundation released a documentary film called, ‘The Last Ride’ based on the Best Selling Novella “The Last Christmas Ride” by Edie Hand and Jeffery Addison.
The song, “A Better Tomorrow” sung by recording artist, Victoria Renée was featured in the film. The song is being featured on iTunes in September and can be pre-ordered now. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the song will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Her foundation helps to benefit The Children’s Hospital of Alabama and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. She can be seen in more than 14 million homes every Sunday on the RFD-TV/FamilyNet/Rural TV show Rx for Healthy Lifestyles
The main goal is to give back to the community and to encourage acts of kindness and generosity in all around her.
The non-profit organization contributes not only funds but many volunteer hours to help out in hospitals, participate in local and regional events such as the Edie Hand Celebrity Golf Tournament to help special needs children, and seasonal television specials. In addition to those efforts, events are held separately or in conjunction with other organizations to raise money and awareness of the foundation’s efforts.
Edie also pays it forward with her YouPaveTheWay program that mentors young people to build self-esteem and educates young women on the importance of early detection and the dangers of breast cancer. She is the founder of The Genuine Pearl Girl Society whose mission is to encourage more acts of kindness to mankind.
Each Christmas season Edie Hand has a Christmas Television Special that brings together Nashville stars, special friends and many of the children who are recipients of Foundation gifts.
Over the last year, the Foundation has gone international and is now affiliated with helping the Ramini Kids Foundation which cares for and supports over 125 orphans in Indonesia. Through Edie’s efforts, she was able to engage Alabama teacher Barbara Neel at Valley Head High School who created a project for her sewing class. They made dresses, pillow cases, and other clothing that was sent to Indonesia for those orphans.
The Edie Hand Foundation is also a supporter Kulture City, an organization to assist individuals with autism to be treated equally.
