Mission: Online Angels is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. **We believe in the power of ONE!** It means so much when someone can reach out and touch a person in need in a very personal, loving way. Here at Online-Angels we help you show someone who is in need of caring or of a well-deserved thank you that you are thinking of them. Whether the person is seriously ill, has been touched by tragedy, needs encouragement or even recognition for a heroic or humanitarian act, we can send them your love in the form of something warm and cozy to wrap around them, like a hug from you. How? We spread that love one love-ghan box at a time! Whether you know someone who needs to be wrapped in a love-ghan or want to be an online angel yourself, we invite you to contact us. Love-ghans - made from 100% love! We make 6” and 12” knitted or crocheted squares and put them together as “Love-ghans” - lap robes - for those who have suffered tragedies, loss of loved one, illness, or someone who just needs to be uplifted. We accept any size squares! We can also send a lap-ghan to a veteran or someone who uses a wheelchair, along with h&B items they can use, and items for our troops. And we don’t forget the little ones! We send handmade items to children’s hospitals - all over the world! * Make 6” or 12” knit or crochet squares for our Love-ghans Don’t knit or crochet? We can share any homemade crosses, angels, cards, or whatever you make to cheer the person up when they receive their care boxes. Or you can donate yarn, h&b items, children’s toys, new clothing, chemo caps, slippers, prayer shawls or anything you think someone would like to receive. But wait - there’s more!

I have been with Online Angels for several years. They are a very friendly group who want to use their God given talents to help others. I crochet and was very happy to find a place who would find just the right place for each of the items I make. I especially like the fact that there are no strict rules on having to send in items by a certain time. Life can be so full of challenges and being able to work with a charity when you have the opportunity is such a blessing. I have donated many items and have also been the recipient of the love this group shares. This is truly a loving place where everyone is welcome and anyone can be helped. I would highly recommend this group to anyone who crafts or just wants a place to belong and know that their efforts to help others is appreciated.

I have been a volunteer for Online Angels for ten years now, and have found it to be a group that helps those helping as well as those helped. By directing handmade items to the places that need them OA helps warms those who are cold, clothes babies, and tries to comfort those grieving. But the crafters who donate their time, supplies and skill also are blessed by belonging to this wonderful group. One of the group mottos is "the power of one." Each single item made is one more person helped. I'm proud to be a volunteer for Online Angels.

I've been with Online Angels for many years. Sometimes I don't make a lot, sometimes I do, but no matter how little I make, or how much I make, it doesn't seem to matter, they love the volunteer either way. There's been many times in my life that the only thing that seemed to make my heart sing was when I was making something for this group. How proud I am to be an Online Angel!

I have been a member of Online Angels for some time now , I love to crochet squares and hats, and do crosses and angels from plastic canvas ,doing good search. I love when its christmas time how we get together send Christmas cards to each other . And OA HAS GAVE ME SUPPORT WHEN I WAS DONE AND AT MY DARKNESS like when my son died in 2009 and now when my mother just past 3 months ago. OA is a wonderful group and I glad I AM APART OF IT.

I am proud to be an Online Angel Volunteer whether it is donating money to making squares to doing GoodSearch. Online Angels gave Loveghans to my Aunt Lu, My Son, Stephin, Myself, and Lisa Meister when we all were going through troubled times. My Aunt Lu has since passed away on October 6, 2006, May she rest in Peace. I enjoy being apart of Online Angels.

I love Online Angels. They are my favorite charity.

As a donor, I love them because they can find someone who needs anything I have to donate. If I want to make slippers, they give them to elderly in nursing homes or wounded heroes in hospitals. If I want to make baby hats or blankets, they go to newborns. If I want to donate pencils, paper, or new school clothes, they go to needy children starting the school year. I can donate stuffed animals and they go in stockings to needy children at Christmas time. If I have pop tabs from soda cans, cancelled stamps, or Boxtops for Education, they have a place to send them. Even my gently used clothing sent in goes to victims of fires or floods!

When my mom died, Online Angels sent me a Care Box with a Loveghan in it, to wrap around my shoulders and remember that someone cares about me. It was wonderful.

I recommend Online Angels to anyone who wants a quality, valuable charity to support.

I can't think of any changes to make to the organization . In a perfect world I would want Online Angels to have more money available to pay for their packages to get shipped to needy recipients.

I've been a volunteer for a few years. I enjoy crocheting and other crafts and it's a great way to share with others. Last year when my Dad passed away, I found out what it's like to receive a box from OA. Words can not describe the warmth and love I felt. Each time I use the afghan or look at the angels or bookmark I'm reminded of what a warm and caring group of people OA is.

I'm glad I'm a part of this group and hope to be for a long time.

I've been a part of Online Angels for about five years. A family member received a box from OA which contained an afghan, an angel, a cross, a bookmark and other little things. I've seen first hand the joy that these volunteers bring to other people---people they have never met. I'm proud to be a part of this wonderful and caring group. I can't imagine life with OA.

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

the love and compassion shown to everyone.

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

full of love and had big hearts

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

spread a lot of love around the world!

Online angels is great. I have been a member for several years, and I knit. This is a warm hearted group that cares for its members, and will do anything to help anyone. Even if you have a family member that is having surgery this group will send a box to that family member. I know I have requested a box for a family member and they really enjoyed it. Online angels rock!!

I enjoy knitting and crocheting and this is a great way to share the items that I love to make. It makes me feel good to be able to help others and just knowing that something as small as a hat can help someone stay a little warmer is a great feeling. The founders and volunteers are a great group of people, even though I don't know any of them personally, they all seem like good friends, they are there to encourage you and also to cheer you during difficult times.
