UGA HEROs is a fantastic organization in which I have had a wonderful experience with. The level of commitment each student member of the organization brings to the table is something that continually amazes me. The dedication, hard work, and integrity that the organization strives to provide is one that is not often found.

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

the great friends I have made and the children's lives I have changed.

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

hard working, dedicated students.

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

put many, many children through our program and change their lives forever.

In the three years I have been involved with UGA HEROs, they have never ceased to amaze me. Often collegiate philanthropies can be disorganized or lack vision, but UGA HEROs is truly an exception to the rule. It is a well-oiled machine, a business. It is run more effectively than any philanthropy I have ever worked with and these college students are truly impressive. They are always thankful for any sort of donation: be it time, money or even just support. The impact the volunteers and donors alike can make is truly remarkable and I recommend them fully.

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

every way possible. Fundraising personally, organizing others to fundraise. Going to events personally, planning these events. It has been wonderful.

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

being part of such an incredible group.

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

organized, warm, inviting, knowledgeable and grateful.

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

expand. impact. change. They would absolutely be able to change the way HIV/AIDS is treated in the United States, I have full faith in that.
