Hands Across America
About The Event
Hands Across America [a 501(c) 3 non-profit located in Franklin, TN] is a passionate undertaking near and dear to Jeff Prescott, who is the brainchild behind the reorganization of the non-profit and orchestration of the Hands Across America 2021 virtual ceremony. Having grown-up motherless and in foster care throughout his youth, Prescott experienced homelessness and suffered from malnutrition; he is sensitive to the experience and what it is like to live and survive under such tragic conditions. Courageous, grateful and blessed, Prescott turned his unfortunate life circumstance into promise, to become a successful entrepreneur and businessman.
Today, Prescott is the Co-Founder of Dreamstime.com. As a personal dedication, and in the spirit of helping those less fortunate, he re-established Hands Across America. Working alongside like-hearted individuals, communities and organizations, Hands Across America is committed to lending aid to combat hunger, homelessness and malnutrition, and offer assistance to those in need, those who are vulnerable and those who have suffered natural tragedies, or loss of income. The goal is to garner $1 from every American to raise $328 Million.
The Hands Across America 2021 ceremony is a symbolic virtual handholding event orchestrated with the goal to change the present narrative of our country in a mutual initiative to join hands and reunite Americans. As a sistering grassroots initiative, Hands Across America will work directly with manufacturers to provide consumer packaged goods (CPGs) to the less fortunate, donating 100% of all profits to the cause to help feed the hungry and homeless.
