It is with great regret that the Board of Directors of Show Us Your Hands! Inc. announce that we have reached the difficult decision to close this much-loved non-profit organization.

Over the past few years, a number of events have occurred which have made it impossible to continue operations. This includes several members of the Board facing very serious health challenges.

Show Us Your Hands! was founded in 2012 by a small group of dedicated individuals, all of whom live with inflammatory arthritis. Our mission was to show the world the strength, beauty, and capability of people living with inflammatory arthritis. We have contributed in a positive way, helping those who live with these diseases to focus on all the joy there is in life.

Our creative awareness projects have built connections in the inflammatory arthritis community and together, we have forged strength, unity and health. It has been a labor of love to share our passion for a united global community.

We have been privileged to serve you and thrilled at the positive and supportive response from the community, particularly on our Facebook page. It’s something that has given us much joy and sustained us during some challenging times. We hope it has for you, too.

We would very much like to keep this wonderful community going.

Although the nonprofit organization Show Us Your Hands! is closing, the Show Us Your Hands! Facebook page will continue as an independent community dedicated to building awareness, strength, connections, hope, and pride.

We look forward to this new chapter and hope to see you there!


Much love to all of you,

The Show Us Your Hands! Board of Directors

Lene, Jessica, Cathy and Sallie
