Helping Others Today (HOT) is a not-for-profit initiative established by Bernard Loeffke and his children, Marc and Kristina.

HOT supports the Friendship Fund of the United States Military Academy at West Point. The purpose of this fund is to foster friendships between young leaders of China, the former Soviet Union, and the United States of America.

This website is our organization’s attempt to strengthen and disseminate peace through personal relations.  Monies for initiatives are generated from the sale of books, lectures, and seminars.

China and US:  A General’s Dream

A grass-roots effort, HOT seeks to foster meaningful relationships using medical and educational tools.

One HOT initiative is called “Teach One Child“. The idea is that a single child, when taught to teach, can have both community and global impacts.  The process begins with the child’s family, then the local school and community, and eventually the child’s country and beyond.
