Misleading advertising. Copied their name from the original Cars for Kids which supports High Schools and uses meta-tags in Google advertising which leads potential donors to donate to their charity instead of the one intended.

When a company creates a similar name and then hides behind
Google search engine terms using the name of Texans Can Academy, Dallas Can Academy, Houston Can Academy or even write off the car not the kid I think they are going beyond good advertising but are misleading donors.

I Have been fortunate to be connected with this organization over the past few years. I am constantly amazed at the thought and concern that goes into every program and event. it is evident the care and concern that Oorah has for each and every individual. Would highly recommend this organization to anyone looking to maximize the impact of their donations

Shady organization to deal with. They advertise heavily as helping kids, but don't mention that it is only jewish kids- which is fine, but I would prefer full disclosure in the ad.
Also, for the amount of expensive radio advertising they do, how much of their proceeds can actually go to the
kids?
Their website doesn't list executive profiles.....huge red flag for a non-profit.

I have donated to Oorah a few times over the past years. this year i had the opportunity to spend time in their camp and was totally blown away by what I had seen. The love and warmth the Oorah families feel is ubelievable. I walked away with a greater appreciation of Oorah and happy that my dollars were donated to a worthwhile cause.

This is an excellent organization that truly loves every Jewish person - no matter what. They are giving, nurturing, appropriate, accepting, fun and give an excellent direction in life.

The Great!

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

some of the teens I have recently met. The 2 girls went to the girls division of their farm summer camp for 4 years. Their experience were incredibly positive and will last a life time for them. Uncle Mike and the entire staff are top notch!

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

have even more outreach. We are loosing Jewish neshamas every day - I see it happening. These are Wonderful kids who had a poor experience with traditional Judism. I truly blame it on the POOR education that the teachers get to handle all types of kids
