Overview

Self-reported by organization

This past year Hartman House had the privilege of building a home for a family in Guatemala. The Xicara family lived in very rough conditions with no furniture, gas, or water. With the help of our donors we built them a home and supplied it with furniture, gas, and water.
 
In November we put on our 5th annual Thanksgiving Harvest in Caddo Mills, Texas, where we gave 700 families a frozen turkey, thanksgiving meal, and enough groceries to last for weeks. It was amazing to have all of the volunteers, community, and donors join together to make this event possible.
 
This year we are returning to Texas to feed 1000 families in need of a helping hand. We are also raising funds to build a home for a 17 year old, Horatio, he is raising his family alone in Guatemala. And our biggest project up to date is the Hartman House School of Destiny. We are launching a campaign this year to break ground by 2011. The school will cost $250,000 in total. Our partners in Uganda, Victory Child Care Project, have acquired the land the school is to be built on and created an awesome documentary to give a visual of the need for education in Africa. Architectural plans have been drawn up and it is only a matter of raising the funds to help change the lack of education available for the children in Uganda!

Funding Needs

Our main project for the year of 2010 is to break ground with the School of Destiny in Uganda, Africa as well as continuing to donate to our partners in Haiti to rebuild their orphanage that was destroyed by this past earthquake. The school will cost a cumulative amount of $250,000 to pay for staff, vocational training, construction, and supplies, which compared to the U.S. is an attainable cost.   The building of the home for the young boy in Guatemala is also close to our hearts. His parents have passed and he is now taking on the role of guardian in providing for both of his siblings. They are living in a worn down shack held up by cardboard walls and bamboo. During the winter it is freezing and the summer is nearly unbearable, Hartman House is close to raising enough funds to building a new home for Horatio and his family, but we need your help.

Principal Officer

Julieann Hartman

BIO

Julieann, wife of Butch Hartman and
Co-Founder of the Hartman House Foundation, has a true heart for
missions. “God has put it on my heart to do his work in all nations and
that’s what the Hartman House Foundation was designed for.” A native of
California and mother of two daughters - Carly and Sophia. Julieann is a
seasoned philanthropist having organized and volunteered for many
fundraising events. Her passion and enthusiasm are instrumental in
keeping the Hartman House Foundation focused on their mission. Hartman
House was Julieann’s vision, “People say ‘you can’t help everyone.’ But I
say: Just watch me!”

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"Hartman House is a non-profit charitable
organization founded by my wife, Julieann, and myself in 2005. We had a
desire to help people who had a difficult time helping themselves. We
wanted to give something back. I know that may sound like an overused
expression, but that's about it. I'd been having some great success in
the animation field for quite sometime and, after a while, my wife and I
decided that it was time to start sharing the wealth.The name Hartman House is sort of based on Ronald
McDonald House(http://rmhc.org/) . I always liked that name - and hamburgers -
so that's what we ended up going with.

Usually, not many of the people we
help know about "Fairly
Oddparents(http://www.nick.com/shows/fairly-oddparents) ". If they find out it's certainly cool, but most
of our stuff has been done in foreign countries with extreme poverty so
these folks don't even have TV's. Although, ironically, they've all
heard of Spongebob.

When we have projects
to do, it takes just as much time as a full-time job. In-between
projects we're busy planning for the next project. The most difficult
part of the entire process is raising money.

If you're reading this and would like
to participate, the quickest way is to donate!  Other than that we
always need "people on the ground" to do the hands-on work.
