All Hands; The Evolution of a Volunteer-powered Disaster Response Organization
April 3 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join All Hands founder and author David Campbell as he discusses his book, and the organization he founded 15 years ago. With current projects in Puerto Rico, North Carolina, Florida, and Texas, plus school rebuilds in Mexico and Nepal, Campbell brings a unique and personal perspective to the impact of natural disasters, and systems of recovery, both within the US and around the world.
Campbell had completed a successful 40 year technology career, including being CEO of two public companies, when he went alone to Thailand after the 2004 tsunami to “use the internet to tell the stories”. That adventure led to the founding of All Hands and Hearts, Campbell’s passion for the past 15 years. In that time the organization has completed over 100 projects around the world, engaging over 50,000 volunteers. He’s received recognition as the winner of the $100,000 2014 Purpose Prize, now granted by AARP, as well as the $25,000 2013 Manhattan Institute award for Social Entrepreneur of the Year.
