Petra founded her charity, Happy Hearts Fund, in 2006 with a mission to rebuild safe, resilient schools in areas impacted by natural disasters. Since its inception, she has been involved on a daily basis. Her initial work in an executive capacity has helped establish the structure, vision, and strategy that positioned HHF for longterm success. Petra has been the key motivation and drive behind the cause of rebuilding schools for children forgotten after natural disasters due to lack of sustained response. Her selfunderstanding of the power of Mother Nature helps her connect with those in need of aid, empowerment, and hope after their lives have been shattered, as she was blessed to survive a near death experience in the 2004 Tsunami. “We can’t control nature, but we can control the actions we take.” Petra Nemcova Petra has led HHF to benefit more than 50,000 children and 500,000 community members thus far. Happy Hearts Fund has presence in 10 countries: Thailand, Indonesia, Peru, Mexico, United States, Chile, Colombia, Haiti, Philippines, and Nepal. To date HHF has rebuilt 130 schools and counting.
Petra’s entrepreneur spirit was materialized in 2013 when she launched the international luxury home décor brand, Be The Light New York by Petra Nemcova (BTLNY) with cofounder and branding expert, Christian Hosford. Inspired by her life of traveling to fascinating countries, BTLNY brings treasures from travels with elements of playful luxury to enrich homes and lives. 10% of all proceeds from BTLNY go to rebuilding schools with Happy Hearts Fund.
Petra is also a renowned public speaker and the author of “Love Always, Petra” which she wrote to help children affected by the Tsunami with 100% of the proceeds being sent to support Thai children. She serves on the advisory board of the acclaimed Glamour’s Women of the Year Fund. Petra has received several accolades from organizations for her philanthropic work including The United Nations, Women Together, Glamour Woman of the Year, and Do Something.
