I met Ebony Sonshine, Inc. at an event in August of 2014 and I was very impressed with the puppet show they performed. After a lengthy conversation with one of the directors, I was very excited about being a part of ESI. I am an Educator, so when I was asked to be a part of their Life Development Division, I did not hesitate. It has been over a year now and working with the organization has been very fulfilling.
I have two teen-aged children of my own, so it feels good to be a part of something that is helping in the development of our youth.

I have been with Ebony Sonshine Inc (ESI) for over 15 years. It has been a delight in serving and performing for the community, church, and others. It is my prayer that ESI will receive resources and funding to continue their mission. They have touched many lives and have many great ideas to reach more young people in their unique and creativity way. However, they do need more serious volunteers (both adults and youth), which are willing to commit to the vision and mission of the organization. All the best to ESI.

Ebony Sunshine is a wonderful and gifted puppet ministry. It's entertaining, delightful, funny and ministry all in one. Adults and children love the music, puppets and performance. I enjoyed the bible storytelling as much as the children.

Ebony Sonshine, Inc. is one of the best charitable organizations I have been involved with. the Puppet Ministery is the best in the DMV. My nephew participated as a puppeteer. The experience for him was very rewarding. This was a public service that can never be taken away from him, and an excellent form of community service. for his resume. Ebonyshine, Inc. does far exceed its rating.

I was a junior puppeteer with Ebony Sonshine for multiple years, and my time with them was filled with opportunities to bring joy and enrichment to hundreds of children. The group is punctual,dedicated, and deeply concerned with presenting an excellent experience to the audience. Any issues encountered along the way are always handled swiftly and professionally.

Voluteering with Ebony Sonshine Inc. was quite an experience. Being that they work as an entire family, they opened their arms not only to me but also everyone that came in contact with them. This family is beautiful and are very passionate about what they do. They are very upbeat, positive people, whose goal is to simply be positive role models to their community, which they are .I appreciate EVERYTHING they do and I support them completely as their journey continues.
