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 helps so many children around the world. The program that is near and dear to my heart is their nutritional support at Huaibei, Anhui Social Welfare Institute where my youngest daughter spent several months when she was an infant. Please visit their website and see all the great things they are doing! You can send your support with confidence that you will be making a very positive impact in a child's life.

Angel Covers updates me regularly on their activities.

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

not change the organization, I would just ask the entire world to support the organzation.

I have known of this charity and its great work since its inception. I can't think of another charity that does such great work and uses nearly 100% of the donations received to serve its clients. Thank you Angel Covers for all the work that you do.

do nothing different.

I have been both a volunteer and a donor to Angel Covers. I have supported a student until she graduated, have made blankets that went over to Chinese orphanages, and have bought gift cards as Christmas gifts for teachers, relatives and friends to support various programs that Angel Covers manages. I love to see the results of the time and money I have donated doing good for so many children who are in great need of this assistance.

AngelCovers is an amazing organisation of volunteers supporting children. This is my way of giving back to the country where my adoptive girls were born. Knowing tha I am supporting minority girls has been wonderful and thanks to the assistance by AngelCovers I was able to meet the current sponsored students last year and my colleagues students and to visit their homes. It was AMAZING - the most amazing feeling was felt with those who had the least - to see them smile despite their difficulties was amazing. And their lifestyle is so simple and yet the hospitality was amazing offering you a homemade tiny stool next to their manure fired fuel stoves with home made breads and yak tea (OK they joke because yak is a male not female, the female yak has a more difficult name us Westerners can't easily say).
I can not say enough good things about AngelCovers and their support of Tibetan girls in their China program - it is top class. They keep focussed on supporting as many students as possible despite the limited facilities.
The hospitality, the anticipation for their futures, the gorgeous mountains, yaks and sheep running along the mountainsides are things I will never forget. And the AngelCover staff are so supportive - thank you Kari, Angela, Rinchen and others.

We've supported Angel Covers for many years now. We are on our third college student now and have graduated two doctors! What a difference these girls will make in the world but also change the perspective in their small villages that believes girls should be married off at young ages. Angel Covers definitely has their heart in the right place and communicate well with their donors. I believe the best way to change the world is through education.

I've been a fan of this non profit since its inception. They never loose their enthusiasm, drive, and desire to seek out ways to help the suffering and disadvantaged children of the world. It's unbelievable all the good that is happening with a totally volunteer foundation. I know of no other non profit that contributes over 95% of all monies directly to its mission and vision.

Angel Covers is truly a nonprofit foundation. All the work accomplished by this organization is done with volunteers all over the world. I volunteer and regularly donate to this organization because 96% of all monies find their way to children in desperate need throughout the world. The director is in close communication with all persons involved in receiving funds and requires reports and pictures of accomplishments. She in turn reports to an outstanding board of directors concerning how money is spent, the progress of projects, ongoing fund raising, and goals for the future. This foundation was born from a belief that all children, regardless of their circumstances in life, deserve to have hope for their futures. Because of the work of Angel Covers children are realizing hope through educational opportunities, better nutrition, medical help, and nurturing adult influences.

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

I have had two outstanding experiences traveling with Kari Fillmore, foundation director. In 2003 I traveled with her to China where we interacted in two separate orphanages providing them with much needed clothing, food, educational toys, etc. In Sept. 2010, I traveled again with Kari to Humble Hearts School for the Deaf located in a slum outside of Nairobi, Kenya. While there I was privileged to help with painting walls and working with students and teachers as I taught new math strategies.

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

Angel Covers does not need to change as much as it needs to expand. With so much need for children in the world, this organization needs many more volunteers so that it can expand and bring further hope to children in destitute areas of the world. One of the greatest needs is for a volunteer grant writer.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

I spend several hours a week helping with the financial accountability of Angel Covers. If more people would learn of this foundation and it's wonderful work, my vounteer experience as financial secretary would improve by giving even more volunteer hours to recording, categorizing and accounting for more donations.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Look into the eyes of a child as they gaze at themselves on the screen of your digital camera, receive a hug from a child living in a slum as you hand them a new book, read a letter a sponsored child writes to you; then you understand love and compassion. All these and more have had a life changing effect on me!

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

HUMBLE!

I discovered Angel Covers while researching my annual holiday charity (something my family does at Christmas in place of exchanging gifts.) I was initially impressed with the fact that 98 percent of the donations go directly to the children. My little girl is Blantina at the Humble Hearts School in Nairobi. I have her smiling photo tacked to my fridge. My monthly donation is automatically taken out of my PayPal account, and each month I get a heartfelt thank you note. When I sent Blantina a package, Ida emailed a personal acknowledgement with photos of the happy recipient holding her items. Helping others through monetary donations does not get any better than this. I intend to sponsor Blantina until she is a successful graduate!

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

From my perspective, the organization could not be run more efficiently and in such a personal manner.

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.

Angel Covers is my wife's and my favorite charity. Their minimal overhead means that the funds go directly where the need is greatest. Their work aiding orphans from around the world is incredible! Knowing the founder personally, I understand and truly appreciate her commitment to continuing this great charitable effort. Looking forward to going to Kenya some day to actually see the benefit that my donations have made! I am sure that pictures don't do it justice. David and Laureen
