Liver cancer, I she got at work, in the Urals, Russia. Urals
- this is one big industrial zone! Near enterprises dangerous to live ... and not nice! I have had contact with carcinogens, such as benzapyrene, arsenic, cadmium, and others! This is a lethal substance. Safety course provided, but as you see did not help. Of course all this is offset by good wages, and therefore was at risk!

I now need a donor liver, or rather 1 / 3 part of a healthy liver, men! - Most of the money I have, but me need another 50,000 Euro ... to pay the donor organ and the operation, Germany. Donors have that joy. Other treatments did not yield results.

I am worked 10 years for the benefit of production, the country, and she turned around - "backwards" ...

I want to live, I have a baby just 2 and a half years old! I can not imagine how I would be without ... I can not work, I can not eat, i am body simply dried up ... the weight lost so much!

All, I do not know what to say ...

Thank you listened!
Regards, Victor.

In 2007 I founded and now direct One World Education, a Fair Chance partner and DC-based non profit organization. In just one year, our Fair Chance partnership has greatly expanded our organizational model and programs impact. Our Fair Chance capacity trainer works with our team and board of directors to ensure our organization's structure and policies reflect the mission and accomplishments of our programs. Over the last year, Fair Chance has led our team in the development of our logic model, program evaluation and strategic plan. Additionally, our partnership has allowed us to meet and work with other emerging non-profit organizations in the Fair Chance community to address common challenges and to collaborate resources. I highly recommend Fair Chance to program directors who are committed to building and strengthening their organization with best practices and seeking the professional guidance to succeed and be sustainable.

I have had the privilege of serving on the board of Fair Chance for four and a half years, and have recently assumed the position of board chair. What struck me when I first got to know Fair Chance – and still strikes me today – is the unique way Fair Chance is able to reach into the communities we serve with both depth and breadth, through the relationships that our capacity builders foster with our partner organizations. This model allows us to serve a variety of seemingly different organizations that all share our goal of helping youth and families. As a fundraiser, the investment that people are able to make in the children of Washington by investing in Fair Chance is equally striking. As just one organization, Fair Chance is able to provide service to and thus ensure sustainability to more than ten other local partner organizations a year.

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

watching its reach in the Washington community grow.

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

partner with so many other organizations in so many other areas of the city.

From January to August in 2009, I led a pro bono project team from the Taproot Foundation to research, write, design, and produce new fundraising materials for Fair Chance. As I learned more about the organization, I became increasingly impressed with its unique business model offering free, high quality, one-on-one capacity building services to other local nonprofits. I also enjoyed a close working relationship with the Fair Chance staff, who amaze me with their dedication, responsiveness, knowledge, and passion for the cause. I highly recommend Fair Chance to potential corporate and individual donors (I have become one myself), as well as to future partners, employee candidates, and volunteers.

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

the tremendous satisfaction that comes from supporting a young, yet highly efficient and effective, organization whose mission I believe in.

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

professional, enthusiastic, energetic, and passionate about the good work they do.

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

make an even greater impact on building the sustainability of the nonprofit sector serving disadvantaged children and youth in Washington D.C. With this amount of money, it could also expand its services to areas outside of the nation's capital.

As a new transplant to the DC region I needed to establish a network. I reached out to many leaders in the nonprofit community and I was impressed with how and what they said about Fair Chance. I wanted to align myself with Fair Chance because it was an organization that spoke to my values to strengthen nonprofits as they pursue excellence in meeting their mission. The beneficiaries of their services were not only the nonprofit organizations they partnered with to support but most importantly the youth that those organization's served. As a volunteer with Fair Chance, I invest my time because I believe in the far-reaching value and impact of capacity building. The Fair Chance staff is passionate and committed to supporting their nonprofit partners to achieve mission success. That's something we should all value. Building stronger nonprofits = Building stronger communities.

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
