The Help Earth Foundation (HEF) is Altavoz’s social change arm. It was created with a mission to leverage artistic content to support charitable efforts at the micro level – small to mid-sized nonprofits and larger organizations that are working hard to make a difference in communities across the United States and the world. The foundation’s causes are picked by HEF partners or by our associated artists.
Currently, HEF supports efforts for good by participating in and funding global hackathon like CrisisCamp, Random Hacks of Kindness and Hack4Good, and other ways programmers and tech-savvy entrepreneurs provide life-saving apps and systems for governments, NGOs and corporations in natural and man-made disaster situations.
