Review for Global Links, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

GlobalLinks does a fantastic job of saving the environment and people's lives by taking excess medical supplies that would end up in a landfill and distributing them to hospitals in need in developing nations. As a volunteer, who sorts and packages the supplies, I know that I am making an incredible difference in the lives of people who have not done anything wrong, but just don't have access to a resource-rich healthcare system. By utilizing volunteers, overhead costs are kept down and a higher percentage of monetary donations may be utilized for programmatic tasks, such as shipping costs. GlobalLinks may be my favorite nonprofit!

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

passionate and diverse

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