Reviews for One Love 4 Kids

This organization has helped to transform the lives of children not only in the United States, but also internationally. Its grassroots efforts help to bring hope and inspiration to communities of children in need, as well as tangible resources that will impact their lives and continue to position them for success.

I have personally volunteered at a One Love 4Kids event, where I was afforded the opportunity to see firsthand of the joy that children received from being gifted with such necessities as clothing, shoes, books and more. This is the type of work that needs to be visible as well as celebrated!

To whom it may concern
One love4kids is a non-profit organization serving various school and communities within Kingston and St Andrew and the wider Island for over four years. As the teacher responsible for students and staff welfare I can speak on behalf of the Clancarthy School family in regards to the many and various assistance obtain from this organization.
At Clancarthy High School our students and staff have benefited in the form of clothing, foot wear, counseling, personal care items, books and school supplies and refreshment during the year end social gathering.
As we look forward to the end of the calendar year we anticipate the usual supplies to cheer those in need as they are awaiting your usual kind gesture. Let me use this medium to say thanks in advance as we await your usual response.
Yours in service

Welfare Officer

I have worked with many non-profits as both a volunteer and a board member (elected and appointed). Therefore, it is an honor for me to give the highest review to CASACO. The President, Shernet Dixon-James, works tirelessly to empower and enrich the students in Jamaica. Each year they send greater numbers of school supplies and provide positive role models for the Jamaican community. Keep up the good work. I have the belief that "our world is empowered by ordinary citizens giving of themselves extraordinarily".

The Caribbean Student and Community Outreach Foundation is playing a great role in providing food, clothing, school supplies, books, toys and much more to over 1000 children and their families in the Island of Jamaica. I have had first-hand experience with the CASACO Foundation from the very inception of its development, in providing professional advice with respect to its Charter and obtaining its 501(C)3 status.

The educational and social needs of children in Jamaica are overwhelmingly grave, and CASACO Foundation is on the right path in helping to fulfil that need. I support CASACO's vision and will continue to do what I can to enhance its mission.

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

I experienced the hard work of volunteers folding and paching clothes, toys and books in boxes to ship off to Jamaica.

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

Launch a fundraiser event to acquire a warehouse building that would provide more space to store the items donated and for volunteers to have more room to pack the boxes.

Jamaica and other Caribbean nations are often looked at for their beautiful beaches, warm sunshine, good food and more. But, too often we forget some of the real issues that plague these nations. CASACO Foundation is doing an awesome thing by championing efforts to further educate and inspire young people throughout various communities.

I am very familiar with the founders of this organization and strongly support their efforts to reach masses of young people, through their various program initiatives. They are working to open a library, to partner with local teachers to enhance the educational experience for kids as well as open a computer lab to further advance the skillsets of these young individuals; presenting them with opportunities to utilize what they have learned to enhance their quality of life.

Winning the Winter 2011 GuideStar-KIMBIA Nonprofit giveaway would help the CASACO Foundation to impact many lives and help to steer a generation in the right direction. Please support their efforts with this award.
