Angel Covers is an amazing non-profit. It has always operated on a staff comprised 100% of volunteers, which allows for all money donated to go directly to the children being served. I know Kari, the executive director, and see how she tirelessly works to make sure the programs are running smoothly. She started small, making fleece blankets to send to babies in orphanages in China. Now, Angel Covers helps children in need in several continents, in a variety of programs. My family has sponsored a student in the Humble Hearts program in Kenya since the beginning. When we first started sponsoring her, she was recently orphaned, homeless, and had been taken in by the school for deaf children that had just started. Since that time, I have seen how she has grown, done well in school, and is looking at higher education. We have enjoyed hearing from her, receiving photos. As she moves on, we will sponsor a new student in the program.


Angel Covers does not barrage people constantly for money. On occasion, when a crisis occurs somewhere where a program is located, the word goes out that extra help is needed. People from all over the world come together to help.

I have also volunteered for Angel Covers for several years. I have had several different roles, and currently send out thank you notes to sponsors and those who make purchases online. Angel Covers truly values those who contribute and we really try to make sure thanks are given for each and every donation. I write to donors in many countries; the success of Angel Covers is a global effort.

I have received communication from the student I sponsor, letters and photos. I receive information on how she is doing in school, and how her health is. I am kept updated on what is happening at the school through newsletter email, yahoo groups and facebook.

Angel Covers is so faithful to keep its donors and volunteers frequently updated thru photos, blogs, and Face Book. When a project is under way, photos are posted as progress is made. I really appreciate that Angel Covers regularly visits the schools and orphans it supports. It assures that the funds and items I contribute are used as promised. I also like the fact when I send items to a child a photo of the child with the items is sent. There are not too many organizations that accomplishes what Angel Covers does with a total volunteer staff.

I have been a sponsor for several students at the Humble Hearts School in Kenya. There was a great need for sanitary supplies for the older girls so they did not miss so much school. My current contributions meet this need.

Angel Covers does amazing work with orphaned and disadvantaged children. They tirelessly support a school for the deaf in Kenya, and have built wonderful dormitories and classrooms for the children there. I am proud that the names of my daughter and I are on cement blocks in one of the school rooms as donors. The people at Angel Covers are truly dedicated and also excel at keeping their supporters up to date with detailed information on their various projects.

It is definitely my favorite charity!!! I have always been amazed by the generosity and effectiveness of Angel Covers and the impact they make in our world. I personally have been involved in several projects they offer in Ukraine: getting educational supplies, shoes and cloth into Ukrainian orphanages. The experience was just so heart-touching! I am also amazed at their dedication, the organization is 100% volunteer (do you imagine it these days??)! I personally feel so grateful to Kari Fillmore for starting and running this incredible organization!!!

There is a view that charities can only be efficient by paying big wages and attracting the "best". Let me tell you that is one big myth. After working with many large charitable organizations, I found so much wastage and poor decisions.

I stumbled upon Angel Covers by chance...and what
an amazing organization they turned out to be. All volunteers....efficient, effective, sensible, caring, dedicated...I could go on..and on. I do not have sufficient words to praise them enough for every thing they do!

I am so impressed by this team of wonderful people and the efficient way that they ensure that every cent is wisely used to improve the lives of children living in the most basic and difficult conditions.

In addition to all the wonderful things about this charity, they always have time to treat everyone, whether a donor or inquirer, in a friendly and personal way which gives you a feeling of being part of this incredible team. Angel covers IS THE BEST.

Having been to Kenya, I have visited one of the Angel Covers projects and was totally blown away by what they had managed to achieve. Kari and her team certainly make me feel very humble indeed. These are people who have really made a difference in the world.

NO !!!! I am sure there are many wonderful charities out there but this is simply the very best one I have come across. I think other organizations should take a look at Angel Covers because they are an excellent role model in the world of charity.

My wife and I were working to Adopt an Ethiopian Orphan girl from Addis Ababa iin Ethiopia. In November 2010 we flew out for a court date and to meet our little girl. There we found terrible poverty and 50+ orphans living in an orphanage under crowded and less than ideal sanitary conditions.

I left my wife there to wait for the completion of the adoption process, and returned to the USA, with plans to return soon to collect my wife and child.

Once home, I wanted to do something for the orphans I would not be returning with. Soon I was in contact with Angel Covers, and within a week I had 52 blankets, one for each of the orphans at the Orphanage.

The blankets were of various types, some strong and plain, some delicate and hand made.

The owner of the orphanage was most grateful for the assistance, but he did state the number of orphans had declined in the passing months to approximately 45

I have known Kari, one of the two founding members, for years. I saw this organization from almost the very beginning. I was so impressed with her dedication to help children, how much she gave of herself and how she was able to rally friends and volunteers from all over the world! I have fond memories of makng blankets in her family room, watching phone calls come in, and volunteers stop by. When Kari heard about a need, her response was to figure out a way to meet that need. I moved from Colorado several years ago and keep up with Angel Covers through the informative newsletter. Now Angel Covers is in multiple countries accomplishing so much! They truly make a difference in the lives of so many children.
