My Nonprofit Reviews
G Scott Lacy
Review for Outreach International, Independence, MO, USA
I have had a relationship with OUTREACH INTERNATIONAL since I was a teenager. I was given a $5 bill to take and multiply to help raise money for OI. I promptly took the $5 and put it in a drawer for about two years. Then something happened. I started really paying attention to what OI does as an organization. I decided the best way to raise money for OI was to perform. It's what I do. It's who I am. So, I organized a benefit concert. 20 years has past since that first concert and I am still in relationship with this AMAZING organization. Here is what impresses me most. They don't simply drop the things that people need to them. They go. They teach. They live. It's called SUSTAINABLE GOOD. They leave behind the tools that the people and communities need to succeed and continue long after OI's time there. They literally are changing the world and people's lives for the better. It's not just about being charitable. It's about giving and teaching and leaving HOPE for the people they touch. I have raised money for many charities during my professional career as a performer and musical director. NONE compare to the work and passion that is OUTREACH INTERNATIONAL. They are MY charity. They are MY HOPE for this world. They are SUSTAINABLE GOOD.
