About Hands Up

Hands Up the Pose started as a social experiment in July of 2011. The founder, Jessica Ippolito, wanted to see if she could get a "joyful and celebratory" hands up picture in each of the 50 United States and one on each continent by the end of Labor Day weekend in the US. She did -- and at the suggestion of a friend to keep it going -- she turned the social experiment into a charity liaison that now connects sponsors/donors with various charities across the world.
