Review for A WAY WITH WORDS FOUNDATION INC, North Jackson, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our mission is to help cancer patients and those touched by cancer to get through this. By using music, art, poetry and comic books, we are able to reach almost every person. The foundation sponsors the ROCcK Children's Choir. The choir is comprised of patients,siblings and those touched by ages 3-17.The choir performs 70-90 events a year. These children enjoy performing at Relay For Life events, cancer camps, hospice and hope houses. They raise money for transportation and also give those they meet a cd with their songs, or Helping Hands Shirt and books. Money raised by A Way With Words Foundation keeps the ever growing ROCcK Choir in T-Shirts. We also publish poetry , children books and musical cd. "There's Hope in What We Do"

Role:  Board Member & I write the kid friendly songs of hope, write the poetry books and children's books.

Review for A WAY WITH WORDS FOUNDATION INC, North Jackson, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This group of people, touched so many in a short amount of time. Their compassion for cancer patients and their families are beyond approach. We had the privledge to meet the founder and the R.O.C.c.K. Children's Choir. What a beautiful group of people. They make you laugh, cry and know you are loved.

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

We have somewhere to go when treatment gets you down. These people car and use music and art to help us.

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

courteous, and genuine in how they talked to everyone. No question was stupid, the items the have for sale, you forgot about because the people only cared about me.

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

make alot of people very happy. The books they publish are written by cancer patients, and the authors become famous before they pass away. The children who sing spread so much joy, it's church without guilt.

Ways to make it better...

A news camera was there to catch something so true and wonderful.

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

lack of the public knowing they are here. They are the "best Kept Secret" in town. Their biggest problem will be lack of money to fund to keep it going.

One thing I'd also say is that...

we are lucky to have them here ,and it's a rare group of people who help others for the only reason, to help.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010

Role:  General Member of the Public & met them performing at a new non for profit store at the mall.
