The children's burn foundation is absolutely amazing ! I volunteered during Camp Gung-Ho this past summer and the happiness they are bringing to these children is absolutely amazing. When the child burn survivors come to camp they can just be themselves around other children who can relate to them. They had so much fun during surf camp. Most of the children were afraid to get into the water but by the end of the day they were standing on the surf boards riding into the beach.Just absolutely incredible!

The Children’s Burn Foundation provides support services for child burn survivors and their families, as well as burn prevention and fire safety education to thousands of children. They CBF's concern is for the Full Recovery of a child burn survivor: physical, psychological, emotional, and social. This organization attracts the efforts and expertise of not only a tireless group of volunteers who actively fundraise, but a support staff of caring and very special women and men who make arrangements for care and provide support to child burn victims and their families from around the world.

What an awesome non-profit foundation! No one knows what the pain and life long scars of a burn survivor feels like, until you know of someone who has gone through it. Makes me so happy to see that there are gifted, giving, and dedicated organizations who help others recover from such an aweful experience. God bless you guys for everything that you do!

The work of the dedicated staff and volunteers of The Children's Burn Foundation is excellent. Their support for children and their families through counseling, support group services, medical assistance, and engagement touches each person individually. It can be difficult, but rewarding work and those I have had contact with are some of the most hard-working and caring people I know.

Children's Burn Foundation is the only burn organization providing support and resources to children who are burned locally, nationally and internationally. Support includes funding for medical, psycho-social, and emergency treatment. It is an honor to volunteer my time and energy for this vital charity.

Children Burn Foundation is an icredible non profit organization that helps burned kids (and their families in need at a time of crisis) locally and internationally . The amazing role of the brilliant surgeons, the nurturing role of the nurses and staff; as well as, the active role af each and every single Board and Council members goes beyond ones expectation. Children all around the world receive treatments physically, psychologically, and emotionally. They are able to grow into an adult not as a burn victim but certainly as a survivor. One could not be more proud to help and support such agreat organization.

I have been able to see the journey of some of the children that are helped by the Children's Burn Foundation.
It truly is a wonderful organization with people who have a heart of service to help children around the world and the United States receive treatment and regain the hope for a better tomorrow.

The impact that the Children's Burn Foundation has on families is tremendous. Through their support groups, camps and programs, they help so many people for a better tomorrow.
Although my interactions with the organization are few, they have created a big impact in my perception of what a non-profit is meant to do/be.
This small but mighty team reaches out to communities and countries, overcoming any boundaries to bring the best care for the children.

Thank you to all the people who dedicate their time and work to bringing these children a chance to smile again.
May you truly be blessed in all you do.

-Tony E.
