Brittany's Hope allowed us to bring home one more orphan from China. She now has a Forever Family! To not have to worry about part of the finances is awesome. The grant we received was able to take of the the orphanage donation. They are an awesome Foundation to have worked with.

Brittanys Hope allows you to make a difference in the life of an orphan, Special needs orphans around the world. There are multiple options you can choose from, all donations are used 100% toward making the lives of these children better and or to help find them a family to love. I have chosen sponsorship of a little girl who has had more tradgedy in her life than most of us are blessed enough to never endure, yet she is a bright, courteous and giving child. She lives in Mom House now with other children like herself. Moms house is sponsored by Brittanys Hope and aids in the care of these children both physically and spiritually. I recieve letters from her and we are able to send her gifts in addtion to our sponsorship - our choice. It gives us great joy to be able to help one of these special children. I encourage anyone reading this to visit Brittanys Hope web site to learn of the many ways this awesome organization is changing the life of orphans, one child at a time.

Brittany's Hope is a wonderful non-profit organization. As someone involved in allocations for non-profits, I have quite a bit of experience understanding where money goes and how funds are allocated. Brittany's Hope has a long standing and fiscally responsible history that is just commendable. They are interested in applying money to their goals primarily and work diligently to enure that if something is not cost effective, that it be altered for improvement.

Aside from that understanding, our family is a recipient of a child specific grant of $7,500 that went directly to the adoption costs of our acute special needs son from China. Without these monies, we wouldn't not have been in a position to bring home our son and he would most likely have died. Being able to be an active part in the sponsorship program was just amazing.

We also have a candid view of fund and supply raising, getting involved in multiple programs with Brittany's Hope to support their efforts worldwide in the preservation of children. The Sunflower Project is one of our favorites- supplying children aging out of the orphan system with 'life-supply' bags to help them succeed in the adult world. Other programs are just as meaningful and amazing.

This is one of my favorite non-profit organizations. It is quality through and through.

Brittanys Hope helped our family bring two children home from China by granting them each 5,000.00 This was invaluable and helped us feel we could proceed with committing to our kids. Without BH we may not have been able to begin our adoptions due to finances.

The Great!

We received grant money for two adoptions.

I used to live in Elizabethtown,Pa and I knew Brittany Abel personally .She was a pleasant young woman well loved by her adoptive family. When she was killed tragically in a car accident,her adoptive parents who missed her very much, founded Brittany's Hope , a non profit organization that helped the adoption of handicapped orphans from different countries. Now the organization has expanded to include various charities... I started to donate for the Walk of Love a couple years and recently my donation was for the nutrition of the orphans ...
My son also sent his money to BH and his company matched too.We all trust that BH will make good use of our donations ,having so many good people working for a good cause .A good ambassador of BH is Mai-Lynn Abel.Just to listen to her, we can feel she is passionate in what she is doing. If you want to donate to a charity, Brittany's Hope is the one !

Brittany's Hope is an organization of such integrity. They offer personal support and give all the money to the children and facility itself. It is not an abstract bureaucracy; when I called, I spoke to a daughter who had been adopted by the family who founded the organization. They do fantastic work with orphans whose outlooks are very bleak in Vietnam and cannot be legally adopted.

The Great!

I received plentiful individual followup regarding my sponsored children and personal correspondence on the state of the foundation.

I have been involved in Brittany's Hope Foundation for over 7 years now. In beginning to volunteer with this tremendous foundation, working with the dedicated staff, board members, and children we serve I became extremely rooted and dedicated to the cause. I have served many roles over the years with the foundation- board member, etc. BHF has an extreme passion for adding the less fortunate and operates like no other organizations I know- 100% funding to the cause. My greatest joys of my time working with the organization have been working firsthand with the improvised children we serve in the country of Vietnam- it has changed my life forever.

The Great!

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

Working with the improvised orphans in various centers throughout Vietnam. Interacting, with those children that have been brought home to their FOREVER families through our granting process.

I wish to involve more people and introduce our work to the masses- we have some very special at Brittany's Hope Foundation and it should be shared and know; you will like what you see.

I have always had a passion to help orphanages in Vietnam, however I never knew how to get started since I have never been there. Last month, Lancaster Newspapers wrote an article about Brittany's Hope Foundation and how they were collecting duffle bags filled with essentials, to be sent to orphanages in Vietnam. I contacted Mai-Lynn Abel who is Director of Humanitarian Aid at Brittany's Hope, after I went to their website and read about what the foundation does. This is exactly the organization that I have been looking for, and my connection to help me help the orphanages in Vietnam. I met with Mai-Lynn in person and was just so amazed, touched and inspired by what Brittany's Hope does for the orphanages and how 100% of their donations is used for the needs of the orphanages, such as need for cribs, medical supplies and clothing.

The Great!

I have not personally experienced the results of this organization but I have read about them in the local paper and met with Mai-Lynn personally. I believe that Brittany's Hope is an honest organization who truly believes in helping children in orphanages.

Put the organization in the news so that it reaches more people, just like it reached me. Brittany's Hope Foundation was what I was looking for and only just found by reading my local newpaper article.

Hello, I volunteer for Brittany's Hope on a semi-frequent basis. Their agency is fulfilling a great need for families who wish to adopt a special needs child. I've worked in the adoption field for several years and don't know many agencies that specifically grant money to families wishing to improve the lives of a special needs child.

The Great!

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

I have not experienced the results of the organization because I have not adopted a special needs child, nor have I met any families who have used Brittany's Hope. Despite any first hand experience with the results of the agency I have read many stories about families who have used Brittany's Hope
