Review for Lingap Childrens Foundation, Jackson, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a volunteer for the Lingap Children's Foundation, I have had frequent contact with President and founder of the organization, John Drake, as well as his wife, Judy. Both John and Judy have made it their life mission to serve the needy children of The Lingap Center by making their lives incredibly better with love, support, encouragement, healing, schooling (in addition to food, housing and medical care). Not only have they changed the lives of the children at the center for the better, but they have reached out even further to educate street children and provide food to those needy people in the area. The impact the Lingap Children's Foundation has made in so many lives is indescribable. The most recent great accomplishment they have seen includes children that grew up at the center and are now college graduates. It is an honor to volunteer for such an honest and downright incredible organization.

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

Review for Lingap Childrens Foundation, Jackson, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a committee member of the Lingap benefit, I was completely impressed with the way that John Drake runs the organization. He puts 110% towards the children and the betterment of their lives. I have never seen anyone so committed to a cause as John is to the Lingap Foundation. His enthusiasm for the cause is definitely contagious.

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

hearing the stories of the children and how their great experiences at the Lingap Center have forever changed their lives for the better.

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

seeing the smiles on the children's faces who have overcome horrible experiences in their past and are now fulfilled and living much better lives.
