Review for Save the Children Federation, Inc., Fairfield, CT, USA
I always donate to worthy causes--and this one is definitely one. I typically consult with Charity Navigator before proceeding. Save The Children Federation, Inc. is a worthy cause. I learned from my beloved mother's loving example to help mothers and children. This charity means so much because it supports an enormously worthy cause, which means so much to me in carrying on our tradition. Also, Save The Children has teamed up with The Red Cross in providing children with centers of their own during natural disasters like hurricanes and tsunamis--on a global scale. I am especially proud to have pioneered this safe space concept. So, during natural disasters, children are occupied with fun activities instead of dwelling on what can be quite traumatizing, they are in an atmosphere of loving kindness. When I found out that The Red Cross took my concept from Hurricane Andrew and teamed up with this charity in taking my concept global, I knew it was a great cause because it shows that Save the Children really loves and worries about a child's well-being--on all fronts--physical and mental. I will continue supporting them and would love to even help them further at some point, in the future. May God bless each and every one of the mothers and children, as well as this worthy organization, which (despite paying their CEO kindly), remains one of the highest rated charities.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I read about the expansion of the concept (safe space) during natural disasters.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Lower executive compensation--and I have an M.B.A. myself. This is something I would do for free if I could--especially since I was a business school student pursuing my M.B.A. when I pioneered the concept--as a volunteer.
