For the good old days

“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.

We leave you a tradition with a future.
The tender loving care of human beings will never become obsolete.
People even more than things have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed and redeemed and redeemed.
Never throw out anybody.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands: one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

Your “good old days” are still ahead of you, may you have many of them.”

Good people build a good nation

Good people for a good nation. Good nation starts with good children that can grow good only when surrounded and assisted by good people.

Children are the most vulnerable and helpless beings around us. Heart seizes seeing children who are suffering. They need the utmost care. Our society has been increasingly degrading over the past few years. This unfortunately can lead to a situation when the next generations will find themselves into a complete chaos. At this moment, there are only few people who unselfishly help others and enroll others for this task. Unfortunately, we’re still in a shortage to help everyone in need.

Essence of the story is that you should be more self-confident and not to be afraid to help others. Perhaps all you could do today is helplessly watch through the window of your car and see yet another child suffering.

Imagine a child with his mom at a bus stop. Mother is busy with her smartphone while the kid is jumping around. Your first impression probably is, how cute all of this is! The boy seems to be so happy and joyful. But wait, suddenly the mother raises her hand in air, preparing to strike. The child immediately squirms, gesture of fear appears in his face. Obviously he knows what will follow next. Pain. After a while, he begins to shout and turns away from the brutal women. How could this kid grow into a good person, if he is brought up with such violence?

Don’t be ignorant! YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. We turn to you – why should you spend money on new clothes, phone, tablet or car? Do you need all of this stuff to impress people you actually can’t stand? Maybe there’s something more important? Don’t be afraid to help others and donate to HUF.

Phoenix paintless dent repair guy changing the world one step at a time

Meet the Phoenix paintless dent repair guy

This time we want to introduce you to Chuck Garrick, person who runs a mobile dent repair in phx operator that repairs dents, hail damage, door dings and other auto body defects and still manages to find time in order to help the Phoenix’s and Scottsdale’s communities by actively participating in volunteer work and donating notable funds from time to time. Today we’ll discuss a bit of all – his profession, business and personal life, why he has enrolled with HUF and what he expects from the future.

When you are a 20 year old from a small town in Arizona it’s safe to say that you pretty much know nothing about how the world works, and, what is more important, what you are capable of.

Dreaming big is free to everyone out there, but to know what you are able to actually execute, requires not only more experience but a developed maturity as well. Don’t worry, this does not mean that one should feel discouraged, but only that it is important for one to find that fine balance between reality and fantasy. Remember, that the difficult takes time, and the impossible – a little bit longer.

Academic Education or Professional Training?

After graduating BASIS Scottsdale high school I, like any other peer graduate, had to make the toughest choice up to that point in life – decide whether to continue to educate myself in collage/university or choose the professional career path. Considering the ridiculous amount of money one has to spend to get an academic education and this meaning that you live half of your life in debt, I chose the latter.

There were many options of courses to take and of skills to acquire, but I didn’t have to think for long. My passion from early days had been cars. I spent hundreds or even thousands of hours capturing spots of cars. I love big cars, small cars, fast cars, whatever cars as long as they are cars…

Armed with my love towards autos and art, I took a risk and decided to learn at that time a completely knew phenomena – paintless dent repair. For those who don’t know, paintless dent removal is a technique of getting rid of various dents, door dings, even hail damage on your vehicle without needing a paint job. It is much faster and less costly method compared to conventional automobile body repair works.

Establishment of Dent Repair Phoenix

how paintless dent repair worksI started mobile paintless dent repair operator in Phoenix AZ right after finishing paintless dent removal courses. Yes, without any significant work experience, small (or none) knowledge in business related matters such as law, accountancy and so on. Sounds scary, right? It is! However, my experience proved that once you fully immerse yourself in what you are truly interested in, things will rapidly become more and more clear.

Business has helped me to secure a safe life ever since. Although I love my job and love helping people to remove dents and hail damage on their cars by applying my paintless dent removal skills, I wanted to do more. Knowing I have plenty of technical skills, I became a member of HUF and agreed to spend a couple of hours a week doing volunteer work. Enjoyed the process of helping others, seeing true and genuine gratitude and happiness! Six month later started donating part of my paintless dent repair in Phoenix profits and have kept doing that until today (and plan to continue on doing that).

What the future holds?

Hope my paintless dent removal phoenix business will be doing fine and I’ll be able to support HUF financially. If not, I’m sure I will do it with my free time; will continue repairing the dents, dings and hail damage on vehicles people donate to HUF and doing other smaller or larger scale works.

Sharing the profits, not donating

picture of olga and her childrenScottsdale entrepreneur Olga Brette have donated to various charities for many years. She doesn’t do it for any tax incentives, thanks or praise. Asked to meet for a quick interview, for several times she tries to dodge it. But after a thoroughly persuasion we finally meat for an exclusive conversation!

Olga was raised in a medium class 8 children family, her life was not easy as she had to help her parents a lot being the oldest child. She brightly remembers what mom told her about charity and donations: daughter, before you help anyone by donating money or things, for instance, your vehicle, think twice. Won’t you regret it later on? But if you’re ready to do it, don’t expect neither praise nor gratitude. This is why she doesn’t crave for any publicity…

Spare no means on youth education

Olga is not a millionaire struggling to find new ways to spend her money, in contrary, she has to think of every penny she spends both on her personal or business needs. But her meanness resigns at the very moment she sees somebody fighting for their goals and dreams and need money more than she does. Particularly good she feels when donating for education of young people.

For several years she has donated thousands of dollars to HUF, so that the organization could fund scholarships for materially challenges but very talented youngsters.

The first year of studies is the most difficult one, so the material help means the most. The real achievers during this first year learn what actual grinding is and how to get along on their own.

Helpfulness taught by family

Olga proposes that she learnt to help others in her own family. She explains When I was a student and money was tighter, my siblings, my parents, and other relatives helped out any way they could, even if was just asking me over for a meal, that I appreciated greatly. Later, as my business was doing well I did not forget to help them or their children in similar manner.

Now that there is no one who would need help in her own family, Olga helps her community and other organizations. Helping others has become part of her life, and it is hard for her to imagine not doing it. In Olga’s opinion anyone who has gotten his education and reached a certain level of income, needs to morally or financially help those around in less fortunate situations.

With talent, faith and optimism

Olga is one of the first donors that HUF had. It could be said, Olga was already an experienced donor when HUF was only starting to form, as soon as she learnt about this project she wanted to be part of it, and to be part of it not only financially but assist in developing the program as well. Her previous experience both with helping others, as well as her entrepreneurial experience helped tremendously to grow HUF in to the shape it is in now.

When asked how she chooses the causes she helps, her answer is simple I definitely want to know where and how the money I donate will be spent. Meet eye to eye and talk over with the persons receiving it. I am not a psychic or a psychologist, but somehow I have always been a great judge of character. I evaluate the honesty of the people, how great their need is. Fortunately, I am yet to meet easy money seekers and speculators.

People at HUF are thankful that Olga has worked with them for all these years, and hope to not disappoint her and to work with her in the future as well. In the meantime we thank Olga for giving her time to talk with us, and finally agreeing to give us a chance to publically thank her for helping the community.
