Penny's work has brought hope to so many families in Guatemala. From providing schools to clean water, from cottage industries of sewing and beadwork -- the impact will be a positive unstoppable force!

We have encouraged, donated to and volunteered with this charity over the years. They are doing great work in Guatemala and I can highly recommend supporting their cause.

What impressed me the most about this organization is that the are truly making a difference in the lives of many. 100% of the money donated has gone toward this goal. I have traveled to Guatemala with this group as a volunteer and have seen first hand the results. The people running Miracles in Action are doing it out of love and genuine concern for others. Their heart is in the right place and their efforts are saving lives, educating the young, teaching meaningful work skills, and improving health through water and stove projects as well as improved nutrition.

Our family contributed funds to build a school for a community and we could not be happier with Penny and Miracles in Action. A grass roots charity that performs miracles, truly outstanding!

I met Penny Rambacher, founder of Miracles in Action, about 10 years ago and was immediately impressed. The non-profit organization that she has created has surpassed my wildest expectations. From providing aid to the poorest of the poor in Guatemala to funding schools in remote villages, Miracles in Action is doing just that... providing MIRACLES to those in need. I can't say enough good things about this organization. They are blessing those in need as well as those who get involved. Keep up the good work!

I have known Miracles founder Penny since she began working in Guatemala with Airline Ambassadors and before she founded Miracles. I know of no other charity where you can make a donation and then get to see where it goes. Build a school and you are there for the opening. Donate a stove and you can see the home it is installed in. Miracles makes sustainable aid in Guatemala that makes a difference in every life it touches.

From the early days of taking shoes, toys and blankets, this charity has progressed to building schools, vocational training, libraries, clean water and wells for villages, vented cooking stoves, family planning and so much more. I know of no other charity where 100% of your donation goes to the project you support and if you contribute to build a school, you as the donor get to go and see what you have built and see the gratitude of every child and adult in the village you have helped. Penny, the founder and CEO of Miracles is an amazing lady with so much vision for a brighter tomorrow for Guatemala with the sustainable aid she provides.

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

I have seen this organization grow from the beginning and am still amazed at all that has been accomplished.

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

Change nothing.

I love that this organization began with one person. One person that was not only willing to SEE extreme poverty while on vacation, but one person that DID SOMETHING about what they saw.
It is amazing what a difference one person can make. So many schools! So many lives touched.
Thank you Penny and your amazing Mom, for starting this remarkable organization.

I love the concept of "teaching how to fish" instead of handing out a fish...Building schools, libraries, installing wood stoves, providing clean water, helping future generations to have an opportunity to have a better life. These are some of the reasons for which I strongly support Mira les in Action. Needless to say, the fact that one hundred percent of the donation goes to the project, makes it a no brainier to choose this charity over any other in Guatemala or elsewhere. I've had the opportunity to meet board members, partners and donors and they are all people with a desire to work for others enthusiastically and with a lot of love. I wish there were more stars to give this great charity.

I really like that 100% of the donations go directly to the projects. I'm involved in this organization in many capacities, but writing as a donor, I feel that my donation makes a true impact! I like to see how lives are changed and improved with our donor dollars. A little bit goes a long way, as funds are directed to on-the-ground projects without bureaucracy and red tape bogging down progress.

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

Keep focusing on the most impact for $ spent!

Our family's foundation has given to many non-profits over the past 15 year but only at Miracles in Action does 100% of your contribution go to those in need. Miracles in Action covers it's own expenses through separate yard sales and fund raisers. This is incredible and unprecedented in the non-profit world, but so true of Penny.

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

Keep doing what they're doing!

MIA came into my life in Jan 2013 when I was invited to join Penny and her group to visit the "bottle schools"that MIA has been helping the Mayan villagers build. The " miracle" was in the smiling faces of the children and parents and in the promise of a better life through education and health. Also impressive ws the fact that 100% of their donations go toward buying water filters and vented stoves etc which are made locally.I was very impressed with the enthusiasm and dedication of the many young workers we met there especially Pedro Rodriguez who has been successfully promoting the growing and cooking of highly nutritious local plants and grains. Thank you Penny Christie Pedro and all the other volunteers. You are my #1 charity among all others. Jolex
