This article was originally written by Danielle Gorman for LDS Living. The following is an excerpt. 

If you have small children, and a subscription to the Friend magazine, then you have probably heard about the Helping Hands initiative. Children from all over the world have been sending in their ‘hands’ (cutouts of their hand with a message of service they performed written across the palm),  and the volume of submissions is staggering.

Jan Pinborough, managing editor of the Friend, is pleased with not only the number of hands they’ve received, but also the quality of service done by the children of the world.
