In my opinion, This project has great potential to become a forefront on changing the way folks in poverty are viewed in this nation. Many talented people can benefit from the need that many people have TO HELP those in need. Unlike many organizations that accept donations and randomly pass them out( or perhaps pocketing?) , The HEARTS OF FIRE PROJECT deals with people on a personal level, individually meeting needs and encouraging artistic abilities and alternative lifestyle choices. WAY TO go, Bob and Co!

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

seeing the prints of artists that have been helped and are helping to make this all possible.

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

make it a foundation of donations and "Gift giving" I would make it a Personal wish list, like the adopt a kid in Africa kind of thing, except here in America. Like, here, this is who I am, and please help me make my dreams come true type of thing.

Ways to make it better...

I didn't have to feel bad about asking for assistance to fix up our motorhome, knowing that there would be a good flow of support for the program and others who need it too. .

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

We at Harmony4Kidz support Hearts of Fire 100% they provide a really valuable service to the community. love the RV initiative. I met Bob Ballard last May at the Conference for Global Transformation. He really cares about the cause and Hearts of Fire is helping many homeless folks realize that they are not hopeless. Way to go!!!

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

help millions of homeless folks get back on their feet.
