Review for Montage Initiative, Bridgeport, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In the stresses of our day to day lives we many times think there are not enough hours in the day to take on one more thing. Over the years I have found a since of purpose, calmness and joy through my volunteer efforts with Montage Initiative. I have learned so much by listening to the stories of those whose lives have been transformed because of the support they have received from this organization. It is such an honor and humbling experience to work with such dedicated and passionate individuals for a greater purpose. Volunteering allows you to look at the “real world” outside of ourselves through the eyes of others. I have learned and received so much more by giving of my time, talent, and treasure than I ever have from any paying job. I encourage you to look at Montage Initiative as your charity of choice. I can assure you, that you too will receive much more than you give.

If you want to support a great nonprofit who is on the cutting edge of innovation and creativity, then check out Montage Initiative @ www.montageinitiative.org I am so excited to be a part of this amazing organization designed to help marginalized women locally and around the world. It truly is an organization that captures the heart of all those involved. 2013 is off to an amazing start! We were so privileged to present at the parallel event in NYC in support of the United Nations 57th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women in March. Our Student Advisory Board spoke on adopting a model of youth empowerment for future leadership and ways to take action. Ambassador Carlos Enrique Garcia Gonzalez, Permanent Representative of El Salvador to the United Nations also spoke in support of this effort, along with Dr. Giri and others. We also had a screening and panel discussion about the film White Rainbow based on Dr. Giri’s life at Fairfield University. Being a volunteer for Montage has changed my life. It is a humbling experience when you hear the stories and see firsthand the struggles that women still endure today. What is inspiring and rewarding about contributing to Montage, is seeing your dollars truly make a difference in the lives of others. Please join me in giving a 5 star review to this well deserving nonprofit!

Volunteering requires a certain commitment not only of time, talent and treasure, but a commitment from the heart. That is why I love volunteering for Montage Initiative. It truly is a rewarding experience on so many levels. Knowing that my contribution has an immediate impact on those we serve means everything to me. You can see the difference and direct result in any one of our program initiatives. I especially enjoyed working with the interns from Fairfield University’s NGO class. The students were a refreshing burst of light and energy. I am so thankful for the opportunities that my volunteer work with Montage has afforded me. I can’t wait until our next project!!

Now more than ever people are looking for cause driven organization that are truly making a difference in the lives of others. I know I was, and that is what drew me to Montage Initiative. They are changing lives around the globe, simply by using compassion, hope, and heart. They are providing opportunities for women that will allow them to be self-sustainable. I have worked with a number of nonprofit organizations, and non-have left me feeling as fulfilled and grateful as this one. If you are looking for a place to invest your time, talent and treasure, I can assure you that you will receive much more than you give. I know my life has been changed for the better through my involvement as a volunteer and donor. I am most thankful for the opportunity to be a part of something that I believe in time is going to help change the world, and create a culture of peace.

From time to time, we are fortunate enough, to be presented with opportunities to make a difference in the life of another human being. The most gratifying aspect of this is that in doing so, your own life is enriched. Heart Share International embraces the essence of the human spirit. The work that they are doing to bring awareness and support to the widows of India takes humanitarianism to the next level. The honest conversations they had with the women & widows of India have the power to open even the most heavily barricaded hearts. If you want to be a part of something truly rewarding beyond measure, please join me, and help support this amazing organization. You to, can make a difference and help change the injustices of the world by opening your heart.

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

The people and feeling of gratification knowing that you are making a difference in someone's life.

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

professional, compassionate, and people that I hope to emulate.

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

Change the world one person at a time, creating peace and equality for all.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to give..........

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

Funding

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

If you want to look in the mirror and say I did something meaningful today.......support Heart Share!
