Our Introduction

More About The JoyJ Initiative

Despite the advancement in technology, our society is becoming more distant and disconnected. There is a global need to bring people closer together; to better understand each other and help one another through tough times. With this in mind, JoyJ aims to foster meaningful human connections through its unique programs. Both individuals and groups can provide help and comfort to homeless people and other disadvantaged communities.  100% of donated funds are used to directly purchase essential items and host future outreaches.

Our Introduction

More About JoyJ

In a world where connections are increasingly superficial, we aim to foster meaningful human connections by offering unique programs for groups and individuals to provide aid and comfort to those experiencing homelessness as well as other communities undergoing hardship. The JoyJ Initiative is an entirely volunteer-run organization, and 100% of funds donated are used to purchase essential items and cover other expenses directly related to our programs.
How Outreaches Work

Connect With Your Community

JoyJ provides essential support to disadvantaged communities, including people suffering from homelessness and poverty. We do this through a series of unique programs where volunteers get an opportunity to engage in “spontaneous philanthropy” - Unlike simply donating money to a faceless organization, our programs provide a chance for engagement directly between volunteers and people in need. This is the most powerful 'human' aspect of our organization and helps to provide a far-reaching impact on the community.

Organizers receive donations online and from the local community.

Organizers buy supplies and pack them into comfort bags.

Volunteers receive an Orientation and then head out in teams.

Teams distribute the comfort bags in their community.
