I am from a very small town in the very Eastern part of Kentucky, an almost forgotten part of the world.
Jobs are hard to find and a major part of the families live in poverty. We are a loving, faithful and proud area that just needed some help and that is what we found with The Good People
Fund!
While working at a small school of about 80 students I wanted to start a back pack program where our kids could take food home for the weekend to ensure they have food to eat..I met a lady who introduced me to Naomi and the amazing people of The Good People Fund...it has been such a blessing to not only me, but our small community. I have NEVER met such caring and giving people. Naomi and her group travels here once a year to work on homes in the community, they bring food and supplies to the area and once a month they sponsor a program that supplies monthly food to needy families.
To tell you that this group of people have been a blessing to this area is an understatement, I do not have enough words to express what these people mean to us...pure ANGELS!

How can I explain TEN YEARS of long distance, unconditional support, encouragement and empowerment of middle school kids by Naomi Eisenberger? How can I express the transformation in middle schoolchildren when adults named Danny Siegel and Naomi Eisenberger contacted them and asked the kids what tools they would need to change the world? The 11-14 year old children, half living in a housing project, responded with a "Wish List" of poster board, markers, white out, pencils and pens, envelopes, stationery and stamps. A week later, a huge Staples box arrived at the school (the Broad Meadows Middle School in Quincy, MA) filled with the tools they listed plus some Twizzlers to keep kids' energy up! Perfect! That was ten years ago. Every year since then, the Quincy Kids write to Naomi and Danny explaining how they used those tools to spread the word about child labor and how they united with other schools in other states to fundraise and establish schools in developing countries. The kids co-founded Operation Day's Work-USA ten years ago. A school or orphanage or community health center was created each school year in Operation Day's Work. Projects funded by kids exist as a result in Rwanda, Ethiopia, Burundi, Maiti, El Salvador, Nepal and Bangladesh and in Vietnam. www.odwusa.org How do you get U.S. youth to be active global citizens? Let the kids write a wish list. Then, put those tools in their young hands. The more that adults like Naomi Eisenberger show a belief in kids, the more the kids believe in themselves. It doesn't take millions of dollars to repair the world. It just takes adults like Naomi and The Good People Fund and a true belief that youthful idealism can become practical activism. Hundreds of children's lives have been changed as a result over the past ten years. Naomi is the ten year guardian angel of The Quincy Kids and their life changing after school club called Operation Day's Work-USA. Thank you Naomi. I wonder how many "good people" you have discovered, shown a belief in, then empowered? The Quincy Kids are blessed you noticed them and their ten years of after school activism. Thank you, Naomi! Ron Adams, teacher and adviser to The Quincy Kids: Operation Day's Work-USA at Broad Meadows Middle School 50 Calvin Road Quincy, MA 02169 USA

The Great!

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

the support, encouragement and empowerment Naomi Eisenberger has provided from far away. My students believe even more in their ability to change the world because Naomi believes in them and sends them "tools for change" every school year for ten years.

Ways to make it better...

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

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the unconditional belief that middle school kids can change the world. As their teacher adviser, I know they can and do work with non-governmental organizations and sister schools in other states to develop, design, fund and establish schools, orphanages.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazing! The Good People Fund staff and volunteers also provided speaking opportunities for my middle school student activists in several states at conferences so the kids could gain more supporters and donors.

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

teach schools how to develop global activists intent on ending child labor and creating schools to help educate ten million children in developing countries. Two communities of youth would benefit: kids in the US learn to lead and literacy spreads.

Ways to make it better...

I knew how to adequately thank The Good People Fund for all they do to inspire and empower The Quincy Kids.

The Good People Fund has helped us make dreams come true. At Second Wind Dreams, we help enhance the quality of life for those in Nursing Homes. Since we aren't the most popular float in the parade, it's difficult to get support. Not so with Naomi and The Good People Fund. Over an above donations, Naomi makes us feel as though we are the most important non profit. I'm a little jealous to read the other entrys. Naomi is ours!!!! She even gets into the smallest of details, giving advice and patiently coaching. Because of The Good People Fund, more dreams have come true for our elders.

The Great!

Naomi Eisenberger is the epitome of a mentsch...she just has the absolute knack for discerning the most noble and worthwhile causes to support...I am in awe of the different projects which she helps firsthand on a trip to Israel...it is just remarkable. I have a childrens art exhibition from Israel that has traveled allover the USA , Canada and Europe with very needed assistance from Naomi...spreading the message of love and kindness and compassion and peace from the beautiful children of Israel and has now been seen by over 20 million people.Naomi encourages and inspires me to continue in the face of great obstacles....but with her help it has been seen in 181 cities in the USA and Canada and 14 countries in Europe...She is helping to provide great positive public relations for Israel through this exhbition.

The Great!

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

helping me to facilitate the exhibition and art workshops for the children of Israel through providing financial assistance for assorted art supplies for 50 schools..especially for recent Ethiopian and Russian immigrants..

no changes...they say nothing is perfect...but this is...of course..Naomi could always use good volunteer help
