I have been involved with Angel Covers, both as a volunteer and a donor, for the past 3+ years. I have witnessed quite a bit of growth and development in the organization's overall plans and goals. It never seizes to amaze me how much the volunteers and the sponsors are able to make happen for the children of the programs, especially in dire situations. As a donor, I'm confident that my money goes directly to support the children. I can't wait to see what impact Angel Covers is able to make in the future and I consider myself lucky to be a part of it.

Wonderful organization. We helped take some much needed supplies to orphanages in China during our last Chinese Adoption Trip. Everyone at this organization has a tremendous heart for orphans and for children in need. The money donated goes directly into the programs and feeds and educates the children - what a great way to make a difference!

We've been supporting Angel Covers since 2008 and it is truly a worthy, grass roots organization. My wife and I visited one of their supported institutions, Humble Hearts School for the Deaf in Nairobi in 2009, and did volunteer work for a week. The staff works for small salaries and are very dedicated to giving a quality education. In addition, communication to those of us who continue to sponsor a child is regular and substantive, reinforcing our satisfaction in continuing our support. And, best of all, all Angel Covers personnel are volunteers and the minimal necessary overhead is covered by contributions specifically for that purpose, so 100% of sponsorship contributions and other donations go directly to the benefit of the people beng helped.

Angel Covers squeezes more benefit out of each dollar than any organization I've ever encountered. We sponsor a child at Humble Hearts School for the Deaf in Nairobi and every one of our dollars goes directly to that child; no one at Angel Covers takes any salary and other incidental overhead (credit card fees, etc.) are covered by other fund-raising activities. We visited Humble Hearts in 2009 and found the director and staff are incredibly dedicated individuals. Teaching staff is paid, but at rates likely well below the market rates. The school also has a number of outside projects such as raising maize (corn) that help in supporting the school's operations.

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

Raise more funds to serve more deaf children in need.

Angel Covers does an amazing job in raising funds for a number of orphanages and other non-profits overseas. All staff are volunteer, so they operate with almost no overhead. In fact, if you donate via credit card, the fees they must pay are covered by sale of merchandise on their website, so 100% of your donation goes to the kids in need. Same with other unavoidable expenses like stamps.

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

seeing the quality education the kids at Humble Hearts were receiving from the very dedicated (and humbly paid) staff at the school.

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

expand its size so more schools like Humble Hearts could benefit from not only funding but from the very constructive relationship in other ways between the school and Angel Covers.

I have been involved with Angel Covers as both a volunteer and a sponsor for about 7 years now. I found this wonderful non profit when I was looking to donate some books and clothes that were no longer needed by our family. I knew from the first conversation I had with Kari, to the picture that arrived with the children receiving my items, that this was something special. The smiles on the childrens faces from receiving basic needs was just heartwarming. I also volunteer, so I see first hand the good that Angel Covers does to help children all over the world. I can not say enough good things about Angel Covers and the work they do! They are truly making a difference.

I have volunteered with Angel Covers for several years in its education program because of its low overhead (3%), its commitment to continue to be run exclusively by volunteers, and its traditional and creative ways of helping children who are most in need. Low overhead means that more dollars go directly to support the children in its programs and projects. The self-sustaining projects have helped schools to support themselves by providing initial investments in things such as goji berry trees (the berries are harvested and sold, and the income is used to purchase food and electricity for the school) and yaks (improving nutrition at remote rural schools). The education programs facilitate the education of the most destitute children who would otherwise have no hope of going to school. I look forward to continuing my involvement with Angel Covers, as I believe in its mission and its ability to implement the best programs for children in need.

I can honestly report a consistent effort by this organization to make the absolute most of precious sponsor dollars. The hard work, respect, concern and steady vision focus keeps this group on task and grounded in the reality of the children they serve. I am blessed to get the chance to volunteer and offer what time I have to support those endeavors!

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

watching children graduate, continue their education and serve their neighbors and families toward the improvement of their communities.

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

Tell more people about it and encourage their support!

Angel Covers are always motivated to help and support the world orphans, especially Chinese orphans. I was very proud to connect between China orphanages and Angel Covers . Angel Covers did so many jobs for the orphans, such as perfect baby bouncers, very soft and comfortable baby blankets, useful baby daily stuff and other useful equipments to improve orphanages' conditions. Angel Covers always makes their donation actions rapidly . I should always say, Angel Covers, Angel Covers' idea, Kari and Lynn, I do appreciate you did/do/doing everything for the orphans. You are so awesome!!!

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

I've heard so many thank you words to Angel Covers from the sponsored orphanages by Angle Covers, the directors always wanted me to contact Angel Covers for their deeply appreciations. They will never forget all the sponsors that help the orphans.

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

So far I can't think anything you need to change. You are the supper!!!

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

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.

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

I can't think of any changes I would make!
