I was seeking to donate surplus of an unused item and was directed towards T4T by a member from RAFT. Upon sending them an email, they responded immediately and they were very nice. We managed to work out a pick up of the items despite my location being in Orange County and theirs in LA. It was a pleasure to help out such an awesome cause. My favorite part: Kathy Petesch invited me to go to an art gallery opening that would showcase how they had used the products that I had donated! It is not very often that an organization will get back in touch with you to show you how your generosity has helped make a difference in the lives of others. And for that, T4T will always have my support.

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

seeing how they were able to construct something of beauty from something that would have just went to a landfill. Now that is teaching children to use the tools they do have into things of use or beauty.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
