I am a counselor at a local community college. I have referred students and families to the Amanda the Panda website and camps. This organization provides an invaluable service to professionals like me who make the referrals and, of course, for those who are grieving the loss of a loved one.

The Great!

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

hearing students comments of their experiences at the camps.

Ways to make it better...

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

make the camps available more often and have more publicity of the support groups and other programs.

Amanda the Panda has been known throughout the Des Moines, Iowa area just by the mention of the name. They are a wonderful organization in our community that helps young and old alike to deal with grief. As a Funeral Director in this community for over 30 years, Amanda holds a special place in my heart for all those they have have helped. The boy whose father died, and he needed help understanding why. The little girl whose Daddy died in Iraq just couldn't understand what war meant and why her Daddy had to go and not come home. The Dad who lost his wife and was left to raise four children alone. Amanda reached out to all these people, and showed them first of all understanding, then friendship. They figured out how they could best help them, and then did it. What a gift of service Amanda the Panda has..they are just magnificent. God Bless them all for what they do!!

The Great!

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

observing how families are helped in our community. Seeing the love they share so willingly. This is truly the Bear with a Heart, and it is shared always. They try to squeeze blood out of a turnip in the use of their funds, so more can be helped. I knew the original Amanda (Joanne) all my years in this area, and she was a true delight of a person. She shared her soul with others to help them.

Only hope they could receive more funds, as with our current world environment it can be difficult to raise funds for necessary groups. That is a challenge all over, and this group is so deserving.
