Review for The Petit Family Foundation, Inc., Plainville, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This foundation was created to further the lives of the Petit Family women, though Michaela was still a child when she died. The horrific violence of what this family suffered is counterbalanced by the work of this foundation. The board and allocating volunteers with Bill Petit as president make excellent decisions regarding the grants and awards, just excellent. I am so impressed where the money goes.

Review for Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition Inc, Quincy, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization has done an incredible job in educating the public about the importance of home residential fire sprinklers. We have had sprinklers installed in our home because of seeing the side by side demonstrations they have done in our community in Wisconsin and on national television. Most people think smoke alarms are enough yet sprinklers are much more effective in saving lives and property.

Review for Wisconsin Alliance For Fire Safety Inc, Brookfield, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

WAFS has done an incredible job in serving burn survivors by providing a camp, co-sponsoring Phoenix Society programs, sending adults to the World Burn Congress and giving grants to hospital burn centers. Its work in fire safety and burn prevention is outstanding through pre-school publications, News papers in Education October publication for grades 4th through 7th and providing an educational trailer exhibits through out the state. They are a volunteer intensive organization with only 1.5 FTE. Many volunteers are members of the fire service, educators, and hospital staff keeping administrative and fund raising costs very low.
