The Helping Hand
The Helping Hand was conceived as a novel way to say thank you to a driver behind you. With the Helping Hand you simply turn on the rear windshield wiper for a couple of seconds instead of raising your hand and waving from inside the car. The Helping Hand will ensure that the person you want to thank, sees your wave.
Simply attach it to the back windshield wiper and when someone is nice on the road and you want to thank them, just activate your back windshield wiper and let the hand thank them instead. If you don’t have a rear windshield wiper, you can suction cup the hand to the back of one of your car windows. The suction cup also works for hanging it in your house.
Depending on your donation amount, there are three different types of hands to choose from:
Please click on the active links below (in blue) if you’d like to see more hand examples as well as hands that are themed and custom request ideas:
You attach your hand to the rear windshield wiper using the Velcro provided. It’s very easy. If you don’t have a rear windshield wiper, you can use the suction cup to attach to any nonporous surface. A suction cup is provided.
You can be very creative with The Helping Hands. When you look through some of our pictures, you will see hand designs that fit every season of the year! We have hands that are holiday themed from Valentines Day all the way through Christmas. We also have special occasion hands that cover events such as birthdays.
The hands are made of laminated stock paper and are decorated with stickers and/or permanent markers. They are fairly weather proof, though you may want to take them off before going through a car wash.
Once donations are received that qualify for a free hand, we will either mail them via USPS or bring them to you (for local donations) as soon as we can. If you have any questions about the timing of your order, please contact us at the email provided on the ‘Contact Us’ tab.
