AMMA CENTER OF MICHIGAN
October 21, 2009

I have worked for two non profits in Michigan. Both of them had residential programs for youth who were abused and neglected. The Amma Center of Michigan took the wish list of these children and bought Christmas presents so that in the morning they had presents from Santa. Recently they gave a donation so the youth could have summer experiences they would not normally receive. Just this week I was able to send a six grader to camp with her school mates. Without those funds she would not have been able to go. This will give her a normal experience that most kids would never have doubted they could go. She held the form for many days from staff because she was so sure that being in a residential treatment program would mean she couldn't go. Thanks to the Amma Center for all the memories they have given the youth in our residential treatment program.

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

Each person I met at the Amma Center have volunteered their talents and resources to help others and to make the world a better place for those less fortunate without asking for anything for themselves.

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

Spread more good in the world. It would all go to Amma's charities with the aid of volunteers so the money raised goes to help others.
