Children Creating Bridges is an organization that is making a difference for children locally and globally through activities that engage children and adults. Children Creating Bridges has given me the opportunity to channel my personal talents and interests into work that enhances the greater good. One of my favorite CCB activities is knitting caps for babies all over the world to help reduce infant mortality rates. With that activity I get to use my creativity and recreation to help others, and I get to teach the skill to others young and old. I especially love the fact that the activity raises the awareness of young people in my area about those less fortunate than they are!

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

The expressions of recognition in the faces of local young people when they learn about the struggles of third world children and how efforts on thier parts can make life better for those less fortunate than they.

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

The chance to focus my talents and interests toward enhancing and sometimes saving the lives of people in the world who are struggling to live and to thrive.

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

Diverse and engaged! All ages! Fun to work with!

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

SO MUCH MORE!!!!! Volunteers could become paid staffers, and the work that the foundation does could increase 10 fold. More children and adults could be engaged in cultural and service projects, awareness would be raised and people would be helped!

As the founder/director of this 501(c)3 nonprofit, I am thrilled that CCB has the opportunity to share Iraqi refugee artwork, live world music performances and globally-minded arts and crafts workshops to the members of our community! In addition, in our Cultural Center and Global Emporium, we are able to help sustain our programs by the sale of fairly traded and environmentally-friendly handicrafts from around the world. We hope you will join us!

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

Seeing how the the work of CCB has touched the lives of people in our community and around the world.

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

As the Director, I can say that we have exceptional volunteers. We do not have a paid staff, but our volunteers work like they are getting paid!

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

Help "power up" a school in northern Ethiopia, rebuild the orphanage that we work with, donate more books to children of low income families in our own community, expand our Cultural Center & Global Emporium to better serve our community
