I know the money, quilts, and other things I send to LWR will be used well. Nothing is wasted. I've taken quilts up to their warehouse site in Mpls and was impressed by their set-up also. They do God's work in the world.

Lutheran World Relief is a wonderful organization that really helps proclaim the Evangelical Lutheran Church's motto "God's work, our hands." They are among the first relief groups into troubled areas when disaster strikes and they stay long after the new media moves on to the next "big story." Their administrative costs are kept extremely low so that more funding can do into direct aid to the people who need it most. I can't travel to Haiti, for example, but I can collect items for health kits, school kits, sewing kits, etc. and donate money, knowing that it is going to a most worthy cause and will be put to good use, directing helping those who need it.

We donate to Lutheran World Relief both as individuals and through our congregation. They are professional, caring and effective. We can give with confidence, knowing that Lutheran World Relief is a good steward of our dollars.

The Great!

Reading articles by LWR and reading about the effectiveness of LWR in the media.

Ways to make it better...

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

add more PR. But then that costs money. And LWR is more interested in providing services than good PR.
