Helping Makes U Happy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that aims to demonstrate how every human is capable of making a difference through volunteering; and inspire others to make a difference in their community. We believe that "doing good" not only helps the individuals in need, but has a positive affect on your own life as well.

Helping Makes U Happy is a not-for-profit public charity founded by a young man with Down’s Syndrome named Keith Caputo. Keith was fortunate to have had the experience of being mentored by a very special man who was committed to helping others, and this organization is Keith's way of paying it forward. Keith and his Board of Directors are dedicated to helping others, and to demonstrating how good that makes you feel. We host several fundraisers and community service projects. Our events always involve community participation as we strive to be family friendly and provide positive volunteering experiences for anyone who wants to participate.

“I love helping... it makes me happy, it makes the people we help happy. And, if just one person looks at what I do and says, ‘well if he can do it I can  too,’ then I can say maybe I’ve made a difference.”
- Keith Caputo, HMUH Founder


It is the generous donations of time and money that enable us to give back to the community, keep getting others involved and demonstrate our message of "Helping Makes U Happy."
No donation of time or money is too small, and is much appreciated! 


We are so happy you’re interested in getting involved with our work here at Helping Makes U Happy. There are so many ways for you to help, and we truly appreciate each and every effort. By lending your support, you’ll become a valuable part of our Organization and help to strengthen our community.
