Angels for Kids is a GREAT organization run by a professional and compassionate person. I love helping out by shopping for a child at both the, Back to School, and Christmas events. Shanyn is an amazing person and I don't know how she juggles the time and energy it takes to run such an organization and also work and care for her own children. The organization is really expandng as she has taken on more kids for her events. I can't say enough worderful things about her or Angels for Kids!!

Angels for Kids is an exceptional organization established to help children in need. One of my favorite events is the Back To School event held each year. Angels for Kids helps prepare in need children for the first day of school by providing new haircuts, school clothes, supplies, etc. It gives these children a chance to start the school year with confidence. For many, they've never had new clothes or new supplies so it allows them a chance to feel pride in themselves which could lend itself to feeling pride in their schoolwork. I will continue to support the organization as long as Shanyn needs volunteers. She is someone who truly has the kids in mind... there are no intrinsic motivators for her. She simply wants to see children shine.

I have been involved with Angels for Kids Foundation both as a volunteer and as someone that a had a loved one helped. Shanyn has held events in the area that I live in that i have helped with and plan on continuing on doing anything that i can do to help her. I have been on the receiving end of what Shanyn tries to do. My stepson Mykel was having a bone marrow transplant five hours away from our home. Shanyn wanted to know if there was anything that she or Angels for Kids could do for my family. I was so appreciative of the offer but really between my son's family we had him covered. But there was a little girl Ashlynn that my son had been extremely close with. Her mom and her were in Ohio all the way from Washington State. Her dad could only come every so often since he had to work for the insurance to pay for the medical bills. Our families became extremely close so I knew that they were struggling with the little things being so far away from home and family. I asked Shanyn to help her out instead of me. Angels for Kids sent both Ashlynn and her mom things that they both so grateful for. Unfortunately Ashlynn passed away a couple of months later, but thanks to Shanyn and Angels for Kids Foundation Ashlynn knew that people that didn't even know her cared and gave her something to smile about.

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

the way of seeing what a gift from a stranger can do for a kid that is going through a medical crisis.

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

make sure that Shanyn had everything she needed to make her foundation exactly what she wants it to be. She could do so much more if she had the resources she needs.

I am a strong supporter of this exceptional foundation who has helped many children in unfortunate circumstances. I have had the pleasure to assist with a couple events and was very impressed. Shanyn has taken some unfortunate things that have happened in her life, and turned it around to help and do good for others. The smile put on these childrens faces speak volumes about the impact Angels for Kids Foundation has on them.

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

I've experienced meeting some special children who are benefiting in the kindness of Shanyn and dedication of Angels for Kids.

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

no changes I can see, except I can't wait until it grows and extends closer to where I reside, so I can partake in assisting with more events.

Angels For Kids Foundation is an extraordinary foundation that has helped many children and families in need. I am so thankful for this charity not only because of the many people it has helped but also for allowing my children and I to be a part of the great things the foundation does. It is a wonderful thing when you watch a child open up a present for Christmas and see the look on their face when without Angels For Kids they might have not received anything at Christmas time. When Shanyn founded Angels For Kids her goal was to touch the lives of as many children as she could. Not only is she touching the lives of those children and families, she is also touching our lives, the people in the communities, and giving us a way that we can give back and know that it is going to someone truly in need. My children and I plan to continue to donate and volunteer for this great charity and I hope more people do the same to help this foundation grow so it can reach even more lives.

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

when I volunteered at the christmas party and saw the children having the time of their lives dancing and eating and opening thier gifts.

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

like more people to volunteer and donate.
