The R.E.L.I.E.F. Foundation

Relieving and Embracing the Lives Interrupted by Earth’s Forces

Relief Trip to Puerto Rico









The R.E.L.I.E.F. Foundation stands for exactly what we do: R.E.L.I.E.F.  We are a non-profit organization dedicated to providing assistance to the people and areas that have experienced great hardship due to forces beyond their control.

We are not the first responders to these devastated areas, but are the workforce and teams that arrive when it is time to rebuild. We have successfully sent teams to many of the top devastated areas in the world.  The Relief Foundation was the first non-profit with over 100 people to head to Port-au-Prince, Haiti following the devastating earthquake.  We sent volunteers to Japan following the 2011 earthquake and subsequent tsunami.  We were also there when twisters ripped through Georgia.

When everything is lost, R.E.L.I.E.F. Foundation will be there for you and those in need. Will you be there to help others?

You’ve Heard of Flash Mobs. We’re Flash R.E.L.I.E.F.

We are looking for energetic individuals of all ages to join with us to provide Relief to those who need it most. In the past the 120 volunteers ranged in age from 18 to 65. Doctors, carpenters, teachers, translators, students and many more all teamed together to offer there time and energy. There was a purpose for everyone even if it was just bringing a smile to a child’s face by reading them a book.

Relief Trip to Puerto Rico

Help those affected by Hurricane Maria starting June 10th. We are looking for medical and non medical volunteers

Our goal is to bring volunteers, half with a medical background and half just looking to help, to provide the greatest amount of good that we can to the areas that need it most. We will be bringing volunteers for 5 nights and 4 days to Puerto Rico from June 10th. We will be setting up medical clinics comprised of people from all areas of medicine. The other volunteers will be helping out with community needs, whether its repairing a school, building a classroom, teaching, or just hanging out with kids and the elderly. We are always actively looking for more projects and people to help so the exact projects are subject to change. You can see 10 potential projects we will be working on when you apply to the trip. See you in Puerto Rico!
*You’ll need to be registered with us as a volunteer first before applying to join the Puerto Rico relief trip. Register with us today or login if you’re already part of our community.

Have You Ever Wanted to Give Back to Those Less Fortunate?

When a volunteer has reached the minimum donation amount for joining a trip they will automatically become enrolled to take part in a future trip.  Each trip has a different minimum as the costs associated with each trip vary.

Benefit of being a Sponsor
By Sponsoring a Volunteer you will gain access to direct twitter feeds, blogs, emails, and pictures so you can see exactly how your donation is helping those in need.
Are the Volunteers given the money?
The donation will never go directly to the volunteer, but will be used to help buy supplies and travel arrangements for the volunteer on their R.E.L.I.E.F. trip.
What happens if the volunteer does not make the minimum for the R.E.L.I.E.F. trip?
Each volunteer is responsible for collecting the necessary donations to join a R.E.L.I.E.F. trip.  If a volunteer fails to meet this requirement by the deadline then the volunteer can either decide to donate this money to another volunteer or they can decide to continue preparing for the next trip.  The sponsors will be sent an email detailing how their donation is being used.
Is there a maximum time limit for a volunteer collecting the minimum donations to attend a R.E.L.I.E.F. trip?
If a volunteer is not active in the community for one year than the donations they have received will be donated to another volunteer who has expressed interest in attending a R.E.L.I.E.F. trip.  All the sponsors will then become part of this new volunteer’s sponsor group.
Do I have to select a volunteer to sponsor?
Each volunteer has a profile in the member directory of the R.E.L.I.E.F. Community.  You are welcome to select a volunteer from this group to make a specific donation.  If you do not select a volunteer the R.E.L.I.E.F. Foundation will assign one for you.
If a Volunteer does not go on a R.E.L.I.E.F. trip will I be reimbursed for my donation?
All donations will not be refunded.
Can I change the volunteer that I am sponsoring?
You are not limited to sponsoring only one volunteer.  If you make another donation to a different volunteer you will instantly become on their sponsor list.
