This is a great organization that makes a huge difference in the life of children. I've been following this organization for a number of years now, and know my donations really are making a difference because of how this group handles itself. Thank you, Orphans Bright Star, for all the amazing work you do!

Since this organization was founded, I have been both a donor and a sponsor for students. All along, the proof has been there for me to see that the Ukrainian children are receiving my donations and support. I know that this volunteer-run charity is making certain that everything supporters, like myself, give is being directed as donors intend it to be.

I have been very impressed with the people associated with the Orphans Bright Star organization. They selflessly and tirelessly work toward making a better life for the children "left behind" still waiting for new adoptive parents. 100% of all funds donated to this charity goes directly toward helping the children - period.

The volunteers at OBS lovingly give from their hearts and I am assured and confident that all funds donated will go to helping the charity, not lining the pockets of administrators.

Orphan's Bright Star began in 2006 with a lot of hopes to help some very impoverished and very deserving children that had few advocates and fewer resources. Knowing the needs and the accomplishments since the beginning, it is hard to believe all that has been done by this small but dedicated OBS group. Groups like this make one appreciate the needs in the world and the people that have the compassion and dedication to try to make a difference in the lifes of little ones in the Ukraine. My deepest admiration and recognition to a group that exemplifies the best in making the world a better place.

What a fabulous charity! They not only help supply essentials to institutionalized kids who are so greatly in need, but also enable those that are "aging" out of the orphanages with a means to learning a trade/marketable skills by providing financial support while they are in trade school.
