CAUTION! Read the archived reviews.

This charity has a terrible record of enriching itself and related fundraisers at the expense of donors and kids whose dreams could be made true with sincere leadership and effective management.

Convincing a handful of beneficiaries and volunteers to write letters of support does not make a organization worthwhile. If you care about kids, give to one of the many organizations that will use the vast majority of your money for the kid's benefit instead of to line their own pockets.

In addition to outlandish payments to fundraisers, the Breiners are pocketing over $230K per year off-the-top.

Ways to make it better...

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

Shut it down and direct funds to sincere and efficient organizations

Professional with expertise in this field & I have received disingenuous solicitations.
