Review for Community Empowerment Network, Ferndale, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked as an english-portuguese translator . I have translated articles of practical interest to residents in the communities served by CEN. I have also donated money to CEN. I was a member of the first group of tourists to travel with CEN to the communities served by CEN. We stayed in small local inns and in the homes of residents. The contact was very personal with many friends made near Santarem, Brazil, during our trip. The organization of the trip was excellent.

The communities are working on developing ecotourism in their areas and CEN is helping them develop and carry out their plans. CEN only provides primarily information and guidance, when asked. The residents themselves are making the plans and doing the work. We attended a large meeting at the end of our trip to give feedback and help the organizers further develop their plans.

Review for Cancer Fund of America, Inc., Mesa, AZ, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Do a search on line of "cancer fund of America". You will find multiple news articles regarding this organization. It is a scam designed to support the Reynolds family (CEO and other officers). Charity Navigator says this is a good organization. Conclusion: Don't trust Charity Navigator.
