Sunshine Action USA came together in 2020 with the goal of relieving poverty. Comprised of solely volunteers and students we strive to ensure that everyone has access to basic necessities that the more fortunate often take for granted. We are an action-based nonprofit organization that strives to create a direct impact on low-income families and those experiencing homelessness. We want to help by relieving burdens relating to a lack of essential material goods (i.e, food, sanitary products, medicine etc.)
On January 1st, 2008, 3 volunteers founded Sunshine Action with nothing but the mission and heart to serve those in need. During a tough economic crisis in Hong Kong, the founder used his own salary to purchase 100 packs of rice to be donated to 100 struggling workers. Since then, the charity has come a long way remaining committed to operating completely on volunteers and donations.
Having worked with 30 organizations in its first year, the charity has quickly grown. Today, it is estimated that Sunshine Action has helped over 193,000 people directly, reaching 18 countries worldwide and working with around 400 charitable organizations. The charity has widely expanded in volunteers since its creation, with more than 10,000 individuals helping with its mission. Volunteers have participated in the many events and programs which Sunshine Action has hosted over the years, consisting mainly of street sleeper projects and handing out donations.
Sunshine Action continues to expand with bases in the United Kingdom and the United States, working with interns to further the vision established at the very heart of the charity: staying committed to serving those in need.
