Great organization. Does a great job raising awareness of congenital heart defects and raising funds to support research into CHDs. They put a lot of energy into this very important cause. If you are looking for an organization to support, please give serious consideration to this one. Currently, there is so little public health research funds spent to learn about and develop better treatment options for something that affects so many of the babies born (approximately 1 in 100 in the United States). Every dollar counts and this organization delivers.

I am so proud to know Monica and her family, and to be able to support Faith's Angels and their work for infants with heart defects. They have wonderful awareness and fundraising opportunities such as the annual White Caps baseball game, Sparta Town & Country days, and most recently, a craft show I was able to donate some homemade items to. I know their works are making a differnece!

We have a son with a heart defect and we wanted to help fund research to better understand heart defects, why they occur and how they can best be treated. Faith's Angels is providing funding for research at the University of Michigan and prides itself on directing 80% of its funding to the cause. We have not found another organization with this kind of track record that directs its funding directly for congenital heart defects. Keep up the great work!

My husband and I founded Faith's Angels in memory of our daughter Faith Rose. She was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, meaning she had no left ventricle. Since her diagnosis and death we have learned so much about heart defects as a whole. It is our hope that we can change the future for children like her to have a better quality of life and a higher chance of suvival. Faith's Angels raises awareness for heart defects through various media outlets and family friendly fundraisers. EIGHTY percent of funds received go directly to heart defect research.

Did you know that approximately 35,000-40,000 babies will be born in the US alone with a heart defect this year and TEN percent (4,000) won't live to see their first birthday. So Faith's Angels is here to help change the odds for babies, children and adults living with all forms of heart defects.

It is our extreme joy to see each baby that makes it through surgery and pass each milestone as research improves.

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

This organization is small but effective. In a little more than two years we've been able to raise over $40,000! That may not seem like a lot of money but every penny counts when it comes to the lives of our children!

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

Add more volunteers to raise awareness for events and the non-profit as a whole. I would redesign the website and get some ads out on the web to attract a larger fan base.

This is a great organization that does a wonderful job raising awareness for heart defects! They are very active in the community and the community support they receive is awesome. The president works tirelessly for this very special organization. Every year they have a big fundraising event that the whole community supports more and more each year.

I have not personally experienced the results but have heard many stories of how this organization has helped raise funds for research and helping out families of children with heart defects.

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

not change anything. It's a wonderful organization that does great things.
