Review for UNTIL THERE'S A CURE FOUNDATION, Redwood City, CA, USA

I continue to be amazed at the reach of Until There's A Cure. For a small group, they have a huge impact. I wear my bracelets from them every day to remind me of why we keep up the fight.

Review for UNTIL THERE'S A CURE FOUNDATION, Redwood City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I help out sometimes at Until There's A Cure (UTAC) and from the inside I can tell you that the thing I like best about UTAC is how lean they are. They give a huge portion of their donations and bracelet proceeds to the cause of fighting HIV/AIDS. This organization is truly there to help, not to make a name for themselves. If you dig deep and really look at many of the big name charities, only a very small proportion of all donations actually goes to charity. The rest goes for their overhead, their marketing or their big legal teams. Not at Until There's A Cure.
The bracelets they sell are not only great looking, but each style tells a story. Many of them are made by HIV positive women in Africa and the funds go back to their villages to help them live and thrive with their disease and to help the children orphaned by the disease. This is a powerful motivator for me to help.
I hope you will too...Until There's A Cure

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

My volunteer experience has taught me a lot about the non-profit world and opened my eyes to the many ways I can contribute.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

More fulfilled than the fashion business I was in before. But that's not tough.

Role:  Volunteer & I help at their offices and at fund raising events.
