3.50CARES started with one goal in mind: To help anyone and everyone in need, with no barriers to our care. Both Hamasa and Miles are thankful they are able to give back to those in need, and hope to inspire others in similarly blessed positions to do the same. We can all work towards a more unified future… Let’s spread CARE!
