About #raisedhand

It's about building a better tomorrow

#raisedhand is about connecting people in need to build for a better tomorrow.

Many businesses around the world have seen their plans flip from growth to survival.  For some, the situation is critical, which has led to essential cost cutting, resulting in job losses.

Successful and highly skilled professionals impacted by layoffs are now finding themselves looking for work when many jobs have been frozen.

It leaves us with a choice.

Do we look inwardly and focus on our situation and personal circumstances, or do we look outwards by asking for help or offering our support?

#raisedhand provides a place for struggling businesses to find professionals who have raised their hand to offer pro-bono support during the Covid-19 crisis.

We’re in this together, so let’s connect and work together to overcome the problems of today and build for a better tomorrow.
