By integrating educational programs, cross-cultural outreach, art and crafts programs, music, yoga, and humanitarian assistance in a unique and masterful way, the CCB sets the example in taking volunteerism to the next level! Its accomplishments, the result of a rare perfect blend of vision, commitment, and action, are guideposts for others to follow. Many are those who recognize that children are the future, but the actionable engagement opportunities that the CCB provides to children and others are unmatched.

Ways to make it better...

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

(one idea) build on the music program, adding cultural festivals, foods from various parts of the world, etc., to provide synergized opportunities for cultural immersion.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the results that it obtains, the example that it sets, and the vision and inspiration that it provides.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The CCB director, Wendy Keslick, is an exceptionally gifted leader, among the finest I have ever known, and she and her team get results far above and beyond the visions of other organizations!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

extend its reach and also hire some of its volunteers as full-time staff, thereby freeing them from day jobs and enabling them to focus full-time on the CCB.

Ways to make it better...

I lived in proximity to the CCB, which would enable me to participate in its activities. However, as it extends its reach, perhaps I can help establish a satellite program in my part of the world.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the same challenges faced by other volunteer groups in a not-enough-hours-in-the-day and information overload society (which impedes efforts to make one's organization stand out). The good news - the CCB has coped with these challenges well.

My adventure with CCB started a couple years ago when I reunited with Wendy at a class reunion. Her story and this foundation has touched my soul. In today's society, children are not as aware as they should be about humanitarian actions. CCB inspired me to act in my community and share with my children just how important they and other children, underpriveledged children , are to our future. CCB not only gives to the future of the children, but they have taught me and my children how to give back. Having a Children Creating Bridges in our community allowed my children to become so aware that when crisis in other countries happen- they came to me and said," HOW DO WE HELP!" My suburbian children understand that foundations like Children Creating Bridges create projects(orphanage,refugees..) in Syria,Iraqi,Ethiopia, because they care about all children; and they are very honored to have such an organization in our home community.

I have been involved with Children Creating Bridges for some time and hope to do more work with them in the future. CCB is a great organization working for a great cause. The variety of events and projects that CCB organizes both locally and internationally offers everyone an opportunity to contribute. I hope that CCB grows to include many more projects that help children all around.

I have been fortunate enough to attend and participate in a number of Children Creating Bridges projects over the past couple of years. They have a wide variety of domestic and international projects, including Warm Caps for Babies, Global Journey Through Music, Free Yoga, Book Donation, Ethiopia Outreach, Iraqi Refugee Crisis in Syria to name a few. Every project, activities and event has been well organized and beautifully executed. Wendy Keslick, the director, is passionate and hard working. She and the whole CCB board look for ways to help make the world a better place and does everything they can to make it happen. CCB is an amazing organization. They deserve all of the recognition and support they can get.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

accomplish all of it goals! Okay, maybe not, but it would go so far. They would build an orphange for children in Ethiopia, send hats and books to children everywhere, and launch and fund new programs that I may not even be able to imagine.

This is a great non-profit organization for both children & adults. Their local and international projects/programs help our children understand that our goal in this world is just about accumulating wealth but about sharing and helping others that are not that fortunate. Their most recent musical program for Haiti was fabulous!

The Great!

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

CCB's local programs, yoga for children, knitting clubs, arts and crafts for children are all hands-on and have been great for both kids and their parents.

My adventure with CCB started a couple years ago during a conversation happened beetween Wendy(founder) and me.I was so touched and inspired about her passion for humanitarian actions.So I decided to donate and volunteer for CCB whenever I could.Despite the tough time ,children are seeking our help because they are "the future" and without them there is no future for us.My biggest concern is to help for achieving the children dream(better living).Children Creating Bridges is involving in many projects(orphanage,refugees..) in Syria,Iraqi,Ethiopia by doing fund raising events,workshops etc.My hope is to see one day CCB nominate as CNN hero.

I got introduced to Children Creating Bridges during a conversation with the founder, Wendy. Her passion for the cause inspired me to volunteer for CCB in whichever way I could. The idea of helping children to bridge any need they have and helping them have a better future was a big reason for me to join CCB. CCB is involved in various projects including these in Iraq and Ethiopia. I have volunteered with CCB for the past couple of years and have helped them with their fund raising events; doing workshops and helping with whatever I can. I hope to see CCB grow and achieve bigger goals.

My experience with Childern Creating Bridges is that it is a fantastic orgination! They are doing amazing things to help children. I love all the activites they have, and they have so many ways to help that you can always find something you like in order to help them! My personal experience is that for the last two years I have participated in the Women's Triathlon with them! I never thought I could do a triathlon but having the organization behind me pushing me I was not only able to finish I now love it! I love crossing that finish line knowing I did a triathlon and helped raise money for an incredible organiation!

The Great!

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

So far my experiences with Children creating bridges have ranged from donating money, attending events, and volunteering. I donated a small amount of money in 2009. Wendy invited me to an event last summer, I believe it was the annual report, but I forget what the actual name of the event was. I was overwhelmed with the stories and with what they are trying to achieve. I volunteered some of my time, not enough, but some to help paint their retail store. I then attended a fund raiser for haiti relief at the store. I have met many wonderful people, and heard some fascinating stories. Frankly, I met people that I never would have had any chance to encounter in my daily life. I do not know how much impact they are making, but the effort and passion they put into it is truely amazing.

The Great!

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

I have met some syrian refugees that were relocated to the United States.
