Pure intention, transparency, passion, dedication, willingness to grow and incorporate new approaches... this organization from it's inception has been extraordinary. Helmed by a brilliant and committed woman, great work is already happening around the globe and developing geometrically. I have witnessed the vision of this non-profit become very real and effect change in inspirational and yet concrete ways.

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

countries in North American, Africa, and Europe... all within the first 9 months of it's existence.

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

its uniqueness, and the variety and high level of integrity and quality of everyone involved.

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

Top flight.

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

It could afford to help all the museums and organizations that needed it -- and develop even more significant and novel ways of aiding its clients.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
