Here are just A FEW ways we GIVE BACK!
WHD aims to give as much as they receive. After all, that's the way we began! Before we every accepted a paying gig, our artists donated time to local non-profit events. Our "accidental business" began with GIVING BACK! Our artists continue to donate time to many fundraising events throughout the year to assist schools, churches, and non-profit organizations. Here are a few events and organizations we regularly support:
RONALD McDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES
When they call, we always say, "YES!" We are thrilled to give back to an organization that does so much for so many families in Central Indiana.
Please visit www.rmhccin.org to find ways that you can support this incredible organization!

The USO of Indiana strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation. Their vision is to provide the best possible services available to the uniformed service men and women within the state of Indiana.
The artists of Willing Hands Designs donate hundreds of hours entertaining at family and unit events for active and retired military families throughout the year.
Snowball Express is sponsored by American Airlines, USO and groups of volunteers around the country make this event possible. It starts with special sendoffs at each of the departure airports, including Indianapolis.
1,800 parents and children from 72 U.S. cities are expected to travel to Dallas on 10 chartered flights and more than 50 chartered flights from American Airlines once a year for an all-expenses paid weekend of fun. All members of the flight crew have volunteered for the event and WILLING HANDS DESIGNS is honored to be a part of this important event, donating face painting and balloons prior to boarding in Indianapolis each year.
