OLDIES BUT GOODIES (OBG) COCKER RESCUE
May 30, 2014

I give regularly to OBG. I volunteer for them occasionally as well. They are a terrific organization. They stay focused on their mission, they act from the heart, and they have no overhead. All their costs go to getting dogs well and getting dogs in home. If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would give them half. Great organization on every level.

Great organization! They work in poor communities to help them find and own permanent solutions to their poverty and they fight bad behavior from governments and corporations that keeps people poor. I really know my money is making a difference with them!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping poor, rural communities that most other organizations seem to forget.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

talk more about the education work, which does not get much mention on the website but which is considered to be among the best.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that they share stories from real people, on the ground. I feel like my money is making a difference to that particular person.

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

committed and passionate.

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

help minimize the impacts of disasters on poor countries like Haiti and Bangladesh by helping communities build their own preparation and response systesm to deal with disasters. That way, they don't have to rely on the charity of other nations. Poor people would have the resources to manage and implement their own solutions, solutions that work for their paticular community.

Ways to make it better...

heard more about what I can do - in addition to giving money - to make a difference.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

increasing demands in a time when resources are tight.
