Of Hands and Hearts: Music for the Tsunami Disaster Fund is a 2005 compilation album. The compilation was released in response to the 2004 Southeast Asia tsunami crisis. The title for the compilation is explained in the liner notes that executive producer Stephen Schnee's father, Duane John Schnee, "whose two and a half year battle with cancer has proven that with strength (hands) and love (hearts), we can face any tragedy together."

Also, according to the liner notes, executive producer Stephen Schnee wrote that this compilation album is "Dedicated to those who lost their lives on 12-26-04, and the families and loved ones they left behind. I was stunned to think that humanity had lost nearly 300,000 fathers, mothers, daughters and sons – people who were changing and shaping their own world. But in their passing, they changed and shaped everyone's world."

Of the 49 songs on the compilation, 18 had never been released before prior to the release of this compilation, and 8 had never been released in the US prior to the release of this compilation. Of the 49 artists who contributed a song to the compilation, 32 are from the US, 8 are from the UK, 3 are from Australia, 2 are from Scotland, 1 is from Italy, 1 is from Japan, and 1 is from Russia. Only R. Stevie Moore with Dave Gregory represent two different countries together (the former represents the US and the latter represents the UK).
