This is a global organization addressing the needs of children's health and environmental pollution. It is extraordinarily cost effective. And the capital committed is leveraged with NGOs into significant clean up efforts that are prioritized by the underlying research. It is a high quality significant integrity capable organization.

I have come to know some of the people at Blacksmith Institute over the past year as a result of working with another "helping others" organization. I have found the Blacksmith Institute team to be compassionate and totally dedicated to their effort. That is the real issue here. I have learned that Blacksmith Institute has identified a world wide problem and has developed an efficient program to remediate pollution sites that are killing children. It seems that this major issue has not reached the press as much as other health issues and therefore does not receive the attention that it deserves. It is also an issues that is typically thousands of miles away so we do not relate to it as well. Blacksmith Institute does a very good job of identifying polluted sites, and then remediating them efficiently. This is why I have chosen to support them. They are working to address a major health issue and a larger percent of my donation dollars are going directly to the effort.

I have not directly experienced the results of this organization but have researched enough to have full confidence in their efforts.
