Reviews for Corazon De Vida Foundation

Rating: 5 stars  

A true non-profit sincerely fulfilling their mission! Their actions are far reaching, showing hundreds of children they are loved and improving their lives and future. Right before your eyes you can see the same children "paying it forward" with love to the new and younger children that enter the orphanages. Beautiful experience!

I spent hours researching local volunteer opportunities, before I honed in on Corazon de Vida. I registered online to join an orphanage trip, not really knowing what to expect, though I read rave reviews of the organization and the trips as a whole.

I expected the trip to be worthwhile, eye opening, and a great experience, but I didn’t expect it to be lifechanging. This organization and the work they do profoundly opened my eyes.

Corazon de Vida is run efficiently, with the children's best interests being of the utmost importance. It is wonderful knowing the children aren't merely provided for until they become adults, but they are supported and encouraged to seek higher education and given the tools to break the cycle.

Corazon de Vida is truly an endearing cause worth supporting.

This organization runs lean and really focuses on its mission of helping children. The coordinators really make the volunteers feel appreciated, and you can see first hand how the money you donate is used to benefit orphans. It's been a wonderful life-changing experience for me to be involve with Corazon de Vida and I feel I have make strong impact helping the children.

Three years ago I was about to train to run the LA Marathon, one day I was reading the Marathon website when I noticed that Corazon de vida was one of the official charities organization helping orphans kids in Mexico, immediately I wanted to help these kids, I contacted Corazon de Vida and I realized the type of people they are, people the love helping in any way they can. The experience was amazing it changed my life and my family forever my kids want to help people it gave me motivation to do my training knowing that I was helping to change the life of these kids, I was able to meet the people of Corazon de vida the day of the Marathon and it w very emotional to me the dedication they have to help others, for the last three years I have been a witness of how they been helping these kids .This year I am running the LA Marathon again and I am proud to say that I am part of Corazon de vida team in the beginning I thought I was changing the kids life but I was wrong they changed mine. Thank you

Love his organization! The trips to the orphanages are life altering experiences. Also to see where your donation dollars are actually going and know that the majority of those dollars actually go to assist the kids and not the bureaucracy is so satisfying. Best part - seeing the faces of the children, watching them grow as you return each new trip and knowing you are part of transforming their lives.
