Our Impact
A little act of kindness
Last year has been a tough year for many of us.
Some of us have lost loved ones, others have lost their job and security.
Kids have had to learn remotely and did not see their friends.
The good news is it seems we are finally turning the corner !

So, let's help each other by doing a small act of kindness.
I am a firm believer that a little act of kindness has ripple effect and can change the world.
I invite you to be inspired this week and do something good around you. Help an older person with their groceries, talk to a stranger in the street, teach someone something that will help them....
The idea is to help someone without expecting anything in return.
Believe me, when you do that with an open heart, your actions will have a ripple effect. The person you will help, will probably do the same to someone else and it will be the start of a beautiful chain.
Remember, this is how Joshua's Heart Foundation started, with a small act of kindness and look where we are today thanks to all of you !
I invite you to watch this beautiful serie called "My kindness Diaries".
Just remember, the church of Notre Dame in Paris was build by the Parisians themselves, one stone at the time. Yes, it took 200 years to be built, but look at what can be done if we all contribute to a common cause !

Praise and Press

JAB 2021 Graduate Arianna Unda dropped off hope boxes made by JAB graduates Analusia Furiati, Sydnie Costa, and herself to the Family Reunification Center at the Surfside Community Center. Our prayers are with all the families affected by this tragedy. Thank you to all the first responders who are putting their lives in risk in order to help others!🤍

Accomplishments of the year !
COVID Corner
Help fight the transmission of Covid 19 within the Community

To prevent infection and transmission of COVID-19, our volunteers and Staff at Joshua's Heart continue to do the following:
  • Wash our hands regularly with soap and water, or clean them with hand sanitizer
  • Wear a mask during our distributions or around others
  • Respect the 6 feet social distancing
Vaccine updates:
  • Minors 16 and 17 years of age may receive the Pfizer vaccine but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to the vaccination site
Thank You Corner

The 8th annual Kare Food Drive was a great success! The Kare Food Drive was first thought by JAB member Krystal Tome during recess time in 5th grade.
This year Krystal had the support of her teacher, Ms. Chiodi, and the Student Government Association at her school, Aventura Charter. With their help and support she was able to do a fantastic Kare campaign collecting over 250 pounds of food.
Great Job Krystal !!!

Walmart donated $5000 to Joshua's Heart. We are incredibly appreciative and grateful for their support.
Thank you Walmart !
The money donated will go yo our purchase:

  • 2 refrigerators (click to see)
  • a fork lift
  • an electric pallet jack
  • groceries and supplies for our future mobile distributions
  • pay for our rent and light expenses

Due to Covid, we have lost a few of our donors who assisted with rent and utilities. We are looking for 6 people / Companies to commit to assist us once, twice or as much as they can towards our monthly expenses. We need 2,500$ - 3,000$ monthly to cover our rent and light.
