I think the word viral is way overused. Just because it gets passe around a few times doesn't mean it's viral. I think it should only be referred to videos that become a phenomenon and watched by millions and millions.

Hey it's NOT just the number of hits that matters during these times of crisis, it's the Helping Hands in actions that counts, viral or not. Perhaps you will understand one day, when you are in desperate need of a helping hand! Cheers!

One of the best characteristics of a leader is community organizing. Good job LDS church!

You can argue about doctrine, belief, and the Book of Mormon...

But when our fellow man is in need...

The Mormoms know how to THROW DOWN!

This is volunteers at work. What has the government done?

Thank you for sharing this. This goes on in neighborhoods all over this nation, neighbor helping neighbor and this is what make a great nation, a great people. We so often hear about the bad visited by the few and so little of the good done by the many.

This is the way things need to be done. Government should not be relied upon except where we don't have the resources... which in 99% of the cases individuals coordinated can do far more because there is no central place to get things screwed up, red-taped, regulated and full of bureaucracy. It is supposed to be "We the People". That gets things done right. Notice how it wasn't SLC LDS headquarters that mobilized but individual stakes and wards that went to church early in the morning in their work close on Sunday, and then boarded buses to go do the work. This is wonderful.

You won't see this story covered very thoroughly by the mainstream media. But that's not what Christ would have wanted anyway. Well done fellow Saints.

Helping Hands -- a Charity in Action. This is what the country forfeited when they re-elected Obama. Romney's style and his quiet charity would have made a difference. When he said FEMA should be abolished, I believe he had this in mind as the alternative. Great film. Great work. Proud to be a Latter-day Saint. The country should take note.

I thought Mormons are not interested in going there money towards service?
I thought they all cling to there guns and ammo.
I thought wrong.

Our stake went to help last week and is asking for more volunteers this weekend. It is still so needed by so many who are just overwhelmed by the amount of work to be done. Your heart just breaks for these people.

I echo the feelings of one of the victims. When our house was flooded a few years back, just having friends to help with the cleanup made it somehow more bearable.

If you are close by, come help...
