I volunteered for the first time last year cause I wanted to help the cause. I saw that the other that have been doing this for a while are truely dedicated to the cause. I think that the whole crew that is in charge are great and that I can see that they are very passionate about what they are doing this for. Also have worked to assist with something to sale for the cause this year. And am marking my calender to voluteer my time.

I have worked with the Harp and Shamrock - Bob Reeder Fan Club for over 5 years now, raising money to buy hearing aids for children in need. All that Mylinda wrote is true and then some. I have observed that H&S has a dedicated core of volunteers who work relentlessly towards helping the children. But even more than that, there are hundreds, if not more, of people who regularly attend Harp&Shamrock;activities and events, all contributing to the cause for the children. All are impressive in their dedication! Jack Moran, D.C.

This organization does great work! We all work really hard raising money for the kids. We don't have any corporate sponsors or "deep pockets" supporting our efforts. It's all regular people giving up their time, sweat, money and efforts $1 at a time.

the amazing dedication of the core group of members who get out and work in the sun, rain, snow, dark of night, whatever to raise money for the kids.

I'm on the board of the Harp and Shamrock in Kansas City, Missouri. We are an Irish Music Fan Club and we raise money for the Hearing Aid Clinic at Children's Mercy Hospital. We've been around for 10 years and have put 120 children in hearing aids. This is important because Medicaid in Missouri will not cover hearing aids, because they believe children can learn to read lips and use sign language. If you've ever seen a child when they receive their hearing aids and can hear music, or hear their mother say "I love you" for the first time, its just amazing. We're challenged this year, due to the economy, but our members have managed to earn enough this year to hopefully add another 5 children to the list of kids we have helped, maybe more. Unlike most charities, the Harp and Shamrock is a totally volunteer organization. Not a single person receives a salary or stipend for their work. The only money kept by the club is to cover the costs of supplies for our booths at the local festivals, supplies for our benefit concerts and for our float in the St. Pats parade, and we generally get a cash prize for our organization that equals the cost of the float or exceeds it. I'm proud that we are a "just for the kids" charity and that we have helped so many children.

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

improving the lives of hearing impaired children.

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

turn the economy around so that they could make more money

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Its all about the kids, we have a common mission and goal and we keep that in sight, always.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Upbeat and cheerful, its all about service, and we believe in it.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

set up a trust fund to that children wouldn't have to wait to get their hearing aids, but just receive them as soon as they are diagnosed.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to devote to it.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

trying to help the same number of kids in a time when folks are low on money.

One thing I'd also say is that...

We have an awesome group of people!! They work so hard, and do so much, and they give and give and give, so we can make a difference.
