I have been involved with Angel Covers, both as a volunteer and a donor, for the past 3+ years. I have witnessed quite a bit of growth and development in the organization's overall plans and goals. It never seizes to amaze me how much the volunteers and the sponsors are able to make happen for the children of the programs, especially in dire situations. As a donor, I'm confident that my money goes directly to support the children. I can't wait to see what impact Angel Covers is able to make in the future and I consider myself lucky to be a part of it.

I have supported Angel Covers for years as a casual observer and "friend" of the Board. The more I learned about the great work they do, how comprehensive it is compared to other nonprofits that focus on one or two needs, the more involved I wanted to become. When a spot of the Board opened up, I leapt at the chance to participate! This charity truly looks at the entire ecosystem surrounding orphaned and impoverished children, from nutrition/medical needs to housing and education. It's helping to create a strong foundation on which these children will have better lives and help to break the vicious cycle of poverty.

Started as a volunteer for Angel Covers a couple years ago as I was so impressed with Kari, the Executive Director's passion for children and ensuring their basic needs were met so they can become the best they can be. This organization puts all resources toward children and the volunteers are amazing with the biggest hearts and dedication I have ever seen. I am proud to be a small part of such an incredible organization with a small budget but makes a huge impact.

I met Kari when both of us were working for our children's sports. I very much admired her for starting Angel Covers and being such a giving person. Not long after our initial contact I started to volunteer with one of my children and found that I only knew a small portion of the work that Angel Covers does. The volunteers of this group are outstanding and very dedicated to the needs of children of around the world. All donations are used to meet those needs which is unusual, but is one of the primary reasons they can make such a difference. I am honored to work side by side with this amazing organization and its voluteers.

Wonderful organization. We helped take some much needed supplies to orphanages in China during our last Chinese Adoption Trip. Everyone at this organization has a tremendous heart for orphans and for children in need. The money donated goes directly into the programs and feeds and educates the children - what a great way to make a difference!

I can honestly report a consistent effort by this organization to make the absolute most of precious sponsor dollars. The hard work, respect, concern and steady vision focus keeps this group on task and grounded in the reality of the children they serve. I am blessed to get the chance to volunteer and offer what time I have to support those endeavors!

I discovered Angel Covers about 10 years ago. I was immediately impressed with the Director, Kari Fillmore. She is dedicated and works tirelessly for child. I was also interested in the organization because nearly all of donations go towards programs. VERY few non-profits can say that. I began as a volunteer doing whatever Kari needed and have grown into serving as a board member.

This summer my daughter and I traveled with Kari and one of her children to Kenya to look in on and work at Humble Hearts. Humble Hearts is just one example of a program Angel Covers supports. It is an excellent example of the organization's mission being carried out. They strive to provide nutrition, housing, medical and educational needs so they can grow into their potential.

I highly recommend this GREAT non-profit!

I started as a donor 7 or 8 years ago after seeing Kari Fillmore, the Executive Director, on the TV speaking about her recent trip to Kenya. The stories about the children Angel Covers were helping drew me in and I have never regretted getting involved with this meaningful organization. Shortly after being introduced, I knew I wanted to volunteer. This organization is 100% run by volunteers and this allows the majority of donations to go to programs. Not many non-profits these days can say this.

My relationship with the organization has grown to where I am now a board member. Angel Covers has stayed true to their mission of serving disadvantaged children and orphans. They are focused, which allows them to provide continuous resources to those they have committed to serving.

Angel Covers often works to put programs in place that allow the organizations served to become self sustaining. The concept of "teaching a man to fish" is so powerful and allows future funds to support other groups or needs within key recipient organizations.

I started as a volunteer with Angel Covers nearly 7 years ago. The organization is completely volunteer run, including the Director. As such, less than 10% of the funds go towards administrative costs. This in itself is highly unusual in the world of non-profits. I have such admiration for the mission, to help disadvantaged and orphaned children around the world. Angel Covers believes that all children have the need for nutrition, education, home and medical care and what is not to like about that?

I have volunteered with Angel Covers for 5+ years and the level of commitment to their mission is heartwarming. They have done a great job of supporting programs as fully as they can without extending themselves to a point where the programs (a.k.a the children) suffer. I continue to be amazed at how low their administrative costs are - the organization is 100% volunteer, including the Director. Where possible, they have worked to create self sustaining programs in-country so that the recipients can "fish" for a lifetime.

Although I haven't traveled (yet) to any of the countries where Angel Covers programs are in place I have experienced the results of the work through letters from sponsored children, photographs of schools being built, water tanks being installed, food being served, childrent being taught.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find more volunteers that share a passion for disadvantaged and orphaned children around the world to help Angel Covers.

We've been supporting Angel Covers since 2008 and it is truly a worthy, grass roots organization. My wife and I visited one of their supported institutions, Humble Hearts School for the Deaf in Nairobi in 2009, and did volunteer work for a week. The staff works for small salaries and are very dedicated to giving a quality education. In addition, communication to those of us who continue to sponsor a child is regular and substantive, reinforcing our satisfaction in continuing our support. And, best of all, all Angel Covers personnel are volunteers and the minimal necessary overhead is covered by contributions specifically for that purpose, so 100% of sponsorship contributions and other donations go directly to the benefit of the people beng helped.

Angel Covers squeezes more benefit out of each dollar than any organization I've ever encountered. We sponsor a child at Humble Hearts School for the Deaf in Nairobi and every one of our dollars goes directly to that child; no one at Angel Covers takes any salary and other incidental overhead (credit card fees, etc.) are covered by other fund-raising activities. We visited Humble Hearts in 2009 and found the director and staff are incredibly dedicated individuals. Teaching staff is paid, but at rates likely well below the market rates. The school also has a number of outside projects such as raising maize (corn) that help in supporting the school's operations.

Angel Covers does an amazing job in raising funds for a number of orphanages and other non-profits overseas. All staff are volunteer, so they operate with almost no overhead. In fact, if you donate via credit card, the fees they must pay are covered by sale of merchandise on their website, so 100% of your donation goes to the kids in need. Same with other unavoidable expenses like stamps.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the quality education the kids at Humble Hearts were receiving from the very dedicated (and humbly paid) staff at the school.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand its size so more schools like Humble Hearts could benefit from not only funding but from the very constructive relationship in other ways between the school and Angel Covers.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Angel Covers helps so many children around the world. The program that is near and dear to my heart is their nutritional support at Huaibei, Anhui Social Welfare Institute where my youngest daughter spent several months when she was an infant. Please visit their website and see all the great things they are doing! You can send your support with confidence that you will be making a very positive impact in a child's life.
