View Photos From a Past St. Jude Visit edie_hand_foundation_200wIn an effort to pay it forward and leave a legacy for community involvement, Edie founded the Edie Hand Foundation after the loss of her three young brothers and her own three battles with cancer.

Her foundation helps to benefit The Children’s Hospital of Alabama and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. She also promoted these and other causes on her 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 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 involvement with student education programs like HealUnited that educates school children about the value of healthy eating and exercise. She is also the founder of The Genuine Pearl Girl Society whose mission is to encourage more acts of kindness to mankind.

The Edie Hand Foundation is also a supporter Kulture City, an organization to assist individuals with autism to be treated equally. Please view the links to other beneficiaries of the foundation below by clicking on their logo images.
