After being involved with this non-profit for 3+ years, and volunteering at many of their events, I can highly recommend Angels of America's Fallen. I've never seen an organization so fully committed to serving the children of our fallen heroes. They operate with integrity and transparency, and I feel 100% comfortable donating my time and money, knowing the kids they support will directly benefit.
The concept is a great one: support children who have lost a parent in service to our country, and support them NOW, while they are growing and developing. I've met some of the kids they serve and the joy the supported activities brings to them is undeniable.
As a donor and a volunteer, I have personally met several of the children AOAF supports. The positive influence from the work they do is instantly apparent by the smiles on their faces and the joy they get from participating in their chosen activities! Angels of America's Fallen is a wonderful organization and supports a very much needed cause! Thank you, AOAF, for all your hard work and dedication to the children of our fallen military and first-responders!
I have been fortunate to meet children in Alabama and Colorado who have been positively affected by this program. If you are able to donate, I highly recommend this Organization. Great cause for children who have lost a parent in the service.
My family has been honored to partner with Angels of America's Fallen many times over the past several years for special events and fundraising efforts. It's a great cause, filling a real need and helping an underserved group. Its founders are truly compassionate and dedicated, trustworthy and well-organized. We have the highest praise and admiration for the work they do, and recommend them every chance we get.
As a retired member of the U.S. military that served for over 25 years, I know first hand the trauma, trials and tribulations the family of a fallen service member goes through. After the initial shock fades into the past, the reality of the loss of a parent is truly evident. The guidance, the mentoring and the positive life lessons that are provided by the surviving parent may need to be supplemented. And that is where AOAF fills the gap. By providing funding to support the passionate activities of the kids, the negative impacts of the loss of a parent can be lessened. And with positive role models and mentoring gained from the selected activities, the kids can develop into responsible, caring, and engaged adults.
Joe and Shelli Lewis are wonderful! They welcome anyone who has an idea to support their cause and offer any and all support they can imagine. I have worked several projects, for college classes, that aim at benefiting their cause and they have been extremely willing to help me as we help the children together. I would recommend this organization to anyone, especially if they are looking for a great cause to support.
Review from Guidestar
Angels of America's Fallen is an incredible organization and helps so many children and families cope after losing loved ones. The support they provide to not only the children, but the family as a whole is phenomenal! Keep up the good work!!!
I have been keeping up on what Angels of America's Fallen is doing and am amazed. The dedication and commitment to the children of our fallen from this very new but successful organization is inspiring.
This year, Girl Scout Troop #365 in Boise, Idaho teamed up with Angels of America's Fallen to earn our Bronze Award. This wonderful organization teamed us up with a special child in need of friendship and positive experiences in her life. The 11 fifth and sixth graders in this troop feel both privileged and proud to have partipated in supporting our special friend in finding happiness in her life admist so much sadness. We are thankful this organization is there to support the children of those who have given their lives for their country and to offer them a bright spot in their daily lives.
