Review for Half The Sky Foundation, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I’ve been a donor to HTS for several years, and got involved with fundraising earlier this year. I’m not fond of fundraising, but HTS is a special case. I believe in the mission, I know how well the organization is run, and I have deep admiration for the people running it and what they have accomplished. Jenny Bowen and her very lean organization understand that the children are always the first priority. The mission of HTS is to provide the love of family for children who have lost theirs, and they do this effectively and efficiently through hard work, careful planning, and leveraging their deep experience in China. The strategies and tactics have changed over the years to meet the changing economic and social realities in China, but the focus on the mission has not wavered. HTS is not a nonprofit seeking an unlimited life span - they hope for a day when their role is no longer needed. This is a group of extremely dedicated and loving individuals who want to systemically eradicate the possibility that a child who has lost her family will go unloved. The attention and awards are well-deserved, and I will support this organization until they no longer have need of my support.
