Help Us Give

The Hug Foundation was founded by Abington residents Alex and Lisa Bezanson shortly after Alex lost his sister Linda to cancer several years ago. HUG, which stands for “Help Us Give” was founded with the intention of helping people who may have stumbled onto hard times and need financial assistance. After Linda died, Alex and Lisa realized how expensive it was for people to visit loved ones in the hospital between parking, time off of work and other related expenses. Money should be the last of their worries during troubled times and the HUG Foundation was created to help offset expenses.

If you're as passionate about our cause as we are, it'd be amazing if you created a fundraiser on CrowdRise to raise money for our Charity. CrowdRise makes it super easy and fun, and your support is invaluable to our mission. Consider giving up your next birthday by asking for donations instead of gifts. Or run a marathon and ask your friends to sponsor you. We love getting donations but there's nothing better than when you go a step further and help us raise money from your network of friends. Lots of little donations really do add up. The power of the crowd is real. Please create a fundraiser and help us make a real-life difference for this incredibly important cause.
