DC Rape Crisis Center
January 3, 2009

What a terrific organization! Great leadership and they really look for ways to prevent rape and change attitudes. I've been involved with them for 20 years and I'm astonished at how much they accomplish with little money.

American Natl Red Cross Alexandria Chapter
January 3, 2009

I think the people who volunteer with Red Cross are amazing. However, I'm very concerned that their national leadership at their Headquarters seems to be a revolving door. How many executive directors have they had in the past ten years? Five? Plus five interim? I wish them luck with their disaster work.

The Great!

disaster work -- they always show up to house fires and help people and you rarely hear about it.
