Humans Helping Humans

Humans Helping Humans

In 2012, Sleep in Heavenly Peace was founded as a non-profit that partners with the community to build bunk beds for kids who are sleeping on the floor. We have over 200 chapters, in nearly 50 states and 3 countries. During our 8 year journey, we've heard some amazing stories that we want to share with you. Why Humans Helping Humans? Because that's what SHP does and that's who we are. You'll hear some amazing stories from the very people who make SHP the movement that it is. Stories are one of the most powerful ways that we communicate and our goal is to share these stories that capture the beauty of life through the lense of some truly and selfless and amazing people. We all can sure use a good story to lift our spirits.

    Sympathy Pains

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
