I like to get involved with nonprofits where the founder is not just passionate about a cause, but also has a sharp focus and smart administration. I'm a huge fan of Kids Connection Haiti - and donate regularly -- because it zeroes in on a group that is often overlooked: older orphans who don't have the family supports to help them become economically independent. KCH offers financial tuition support, life skills training, and business mentoring, and fills the gap that these young people need in order to stand up on their own two feet. Founder Astrid Fitzgerald lived in Haiti for years, so she knows the society well and is realistic about her goals. She puts every penny towards the kids, runs her operation on a shoe string, and is wisely trying to grow the organization slowly and methodically. As a donor, I became a sponsor to a young woman who is nursing school, and received a letter from her, in addition to updates from Astrid, so I know exactly where and to whom my donations are going. I'm really proud to support Kids Connection Haiti, and I hope more people can become supporters!
