Review for Somerville Homeless Coalition, Inc., Somerville, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Somerville Homeless Coalition offers a comprehensive suite of programs to assist vulnerable families, stabilize precarious housing situations, and prevent hunger and homelessness, as well as provide housing for those who have fallen off the cliff. Their fundraising is effective and respectful (centered mainly on road races and private galas, rather than wasteful junkmail and phone calls) and their clients are treated with the utmost respect. As a Somerville resident, I think they embody the best of my city's talents and aspirations.

Review for The Greater Boston Food Bank, Inc., Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Greater Boston Food Bank is wonderfully efficient, using top-notch technology and infrastructure to distribute donated food, and food that would otherwise be wasted, to pantries, shelters, and other food assistance programs throughout eastern Massachusetts. They feed more people per dollar by using scale and media connections to pull massive corporate donations, and are pioneers in the distribution of fresh produce to the hungry. GBFB isn't a feelgood mill for white-guilt-ridden students to work off their privilege to dubious effect. It's a well-oiled machine, and it works. It's what Massachusetts needs.

Review for Bat Conservation International, Inc., Austin, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Bat Conservation International is an evidence-based, highly effective organization working to halt the destruction of bats by habitat loss, environmental damage, and ignorance. Their research and educational activities are desperately needed now that chemically-dependent agriculture is failing so spectacularly and mosquito-borne diseases are spreading further and further from the equator.
