Review for SHADE Foundation of America, New Port Richey, FL, USA
My name is Lorene Whitecross and our elementary school recently won a Shade Structure from the Shade Foundation and Neutrogena's Sunproof your Community contest.
The Shade Foundation staff is professional and very focused on making every dollar count. Using FACEBOOK for their contest, helped our community to become more aware about why we needed Shade on our playgrounds. The cumulative effects of Sun exposure starts in childhood. Our new Shade structure will help children at our school for many years to come to be more aware about Sun Safety and play safe in the sun!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
providing funding and support for Sun Safety education and Shade Structure for our elementary school.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would love for the Shade Foundation to be able to provide larger grants for their Shade Structures. Our grant covered less than 50% of the total cost of the project. Despite this, the fact that we needed help from our community (town, school, government) forced us to communicate with more people about the importance of Sun Safety.
