It’s time to stand in solidarity to #StopAsianHate and support Orange County’s vulnerable Asian and Pacific Islander community.

Due to the surge of anti-Asian rhetoric and hate crimes, Orange County United Way and Nailing It for America are taking a stand to support Orange County’s Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) community.

“Hate has no place in our community and together, we must learn to respect each other. Our Orange County is stronger when we’re united – united in our diversity and in our passion to improve the lives of all who live here. Ultimately, humanity starts here and it starts with each one of us. At Orange County United Way, we believe we will only be better together when we take the time to understand each other.” – Susan B. Parks, president and CEO of Orange County United Way.

Stand in solidarity against anti-Asian rhetoric and hate crime and support those underserved in Orange County’s AAPI communities by donating today.

Your contribution will support Nailing It For America’s efforts to help the OC’s Asian & Pacific Islander Community, including:

  • Helping build awareness through events and campaigns like #StopAsianHate
  • Working with law enforcement, provide resources, and advocate for social justice
  • Distributing food and meals to isolated and vulnerable seniors in OC’s AAPI community
  • Assisting elderly and underserved AAPI community members in OC access testing and vaccines
  • And more!

Allocation of funds will be determined by the Nailing It For America’s founders, including Tam Nguyen (Co-Chair of Orange County United Way’s Board and Cultures United initiative, and CEO of Advance Beauty College), Christie Nguyen (Managing Partner, Studio 18 Nail Bar), Johnny Ngo (President, Whale Spa Furniture), Hallie Duong (Finance & Real Estate Professional), Ted Nguyen (PR & Marketing Professional), other members of the AAPI community, and in conjunction with Orange County United Way.

Nailing It For Healthcare Workers in action

How ‘Nailing It For America’ Began

At the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, the Nailing It For America was launched as a volunteer effort led by several professionals and businesses from the AAPI community to donate personal protective equipment (PPE) and distribute food to health care workers.

More than 120,000 face masks, 300,000 gloves, and other much-needed personal protective equipment were delivered to healthcare workers across the county when they needed it the most.

Orange County’s Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) community rallied together for our health care workers. Now, we’re rallying for them.



Your contribution will go toward various programs supporting Orange County’s vulnerable Asian and Pacific Islander community.
