Review for Potluck in the Park, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am most touched when families with children come through the line for a free meal. PIP serves a very broad community of people in need, seniors, veterans, families. As an individual, I can do so little, but teamed with Potluck, I feel I can make a difference.

Review for Mata Amritanandamayi Math, Kerala, , India

Rating: 5 stars  

I have seen some of the charitable work of Mata Amritanandamayi (Amma) on two trips to India. Her help for Tsumami victims is legendary. I've seen the houses she has built and the widows to whom she provides pensions. Most impressive are the number of children who come to her many schools who would not have a chance for further education. Seeing her expample in India, I have been motivated to see God and serve God in all here at home (USA). For over three years, our local group of Amma devotees have cooked and/or served meals for the homeless on a regular basis.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I have learned dedication and extreme focus to detail in working with volunteers in India. Especially respect for how everything has a value 9recycling)and how wasteful we are here in the west.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

They have nearly millions of volunteers. Even better

Ways to make it better...

I had more time. I'm going back for more.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
