My stepdad that is 94 has been sending me the small little prayer books for years. They have been a true inspiration to me, when I have a rough day or even if my day is filled with blessings the little poems always reminds me of something I should be grateful for. I always carry some of the little books in my purse to hand out to friends that are having a bad day...

Salesian Missions is an amazing organization that puts a tremendous amount of care and effort in providing for the poor around the globe. Their efforts in raising and directing funds toward life-giving projects provide hope for children and families worldwide. They pride themselves on caring for the whole person bridging aspects of health, nutrition, education and spiritual guidance. Their efforts target the welfare of children living in some of the most difficult situations imaginable, and aim to bring peace to their lives while providing avenues to substantially improve their lives and futures. I have great respect for the priests, brothers, sisters and other missionaries that carry out this work daily, and profoundly appreciate the spiritual component of the work they do.

I wanted to help poor children in some way. Fortunately, one day I received a mailing from Salesian Missions. After reading the contents and looking at their website ( you should check out their website---it's really informative ) I was convinced that this was the organization I wanted to support. Their philosophy of "helping poor children to help themselves" and their focus on teaching job skills to young people so that they could find gainful employment, really resonated with me. I also enjoy receiving their inspirational poetry books, their magazine and their e-newsletters. The fact that 85% of my donation goes to the support of programs was also a strong factor in partnering with this organization. As a donor to Salesian Missions, I truly feel that I am helping to make the world a better place. It makes me feel good to make their mission , my mission!

My company has had the opportunity to work with the Salesian Missions organization for more than 40 years. What makes the Salesians so special is there commitment to the less fortunate throughout the world, offering support in a number of different areas including food, shelter and education. In particular, they're work with the young people of the world has allowed many to escape the life of poverty, go on to lead productive lives and to then give back to those areas in need. The Salesian Missions is a very special organization indeed!

I have known of and supported the Salesians for over 30 years. Their dedication to and support of the children is never wavering. Their missions are in over 130 countries in some of the poorest areas without regard for their personal comforts always putting the needs of the children first.

As a professional working with non-profits, choosing to become a Salesian Missions donor was an easy decision. They work with those in need all around the world including here the US. I feel proud knowing that my donation to Salesian Missions helps provide not just one time assistance, but also the training and education to help children, young adults and women improve not only their own lives, but their communities. And the Salesians are a visible, active presence in these communities offering the role models and spiritual guidance young people need to build a better future for all. I feel blessed to be able to help them carry out their mission.

I started donating to Salesian Missions when I was in high school almost 50 years ago. I was fascinated by the great work done for poor youth and needy families around the world by Don Bosco’s Salesians. These past years instead of donating what little treasure I have, I have been donating the gift of my time at the Salesian Mission Office in New Rochelle, New York. During these years I have seen firsthand the good works sponsored by Salesian Missions in Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, India, Mexico, and Sri Lanka. I highly recommend this charity.

The Salesians do such wonderful work all around the world. What I love about donating to them is that I really feel like my donations matter- that I truly am helping the poor through their work. They have an influential presence in the countries they work in, so they can be extremely effective. God Bless them!!!!
