Catholic Relief Services
April 5, 2013

Remember when the earthquake hit Pakistan just before the winter set in and thousands were left homeless? There was no follow-on story about people freezing to death because CRS was able to work with partners in the area to get temporary housing in place for the victims of that disaster before it became a catastrophe. CRS is the organzation that is already there when needed. They don't wait for airlifts of supplies because they warehouse on developing countries in advance of need. We were privileged to meet with their staff in Chenei, India a few years ago while traveling. What they can accomplish using local folks is amazing. I know my support of them is being maximized.

IRAQI STUDENT PROJECT INC
March 27, 2012

In the four years that I have been a support group member for a young Baghdad woman now studying at DePaul, I have been able to befriend some very brave and talented Iraqi young people. They have expanded my world immeasurably. There are now 10 talented and qualified students waiting in Damascus for similar opportunities to study in the U.S. People who step forward to help will never regret their involvement. So much more will be given to them than they can ever offer to the students.

Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly
March 22, 2012

40 years ago, Little Brothers connected me with an old man named John who lived in a SLO on Belmont Avenue. I would once a week bring him his groceries until it became clear that he could no longer get by on his own. At that point, Little Brothers found a place for him with the Little Sisters, who at that time had a nursing home on Fullerton Avenue. We no longer live in that area but having seen first hand the impact the intervention of Little Brothers has on the truly needy seniors in Chicago, we have supported them ever since. Flowers before Bread.
