My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Norfolk, VA, USA
PETA gets results, period. That's why I have been donating to them for the last 16 years and will keep on giving them as much money as I can afford. I would wish for personal wealth solely to give it to PETA. I am continually impressed by the inventive strategies they deploy to effect change for animal welfare, like becoming stockholders in soulless corporations and gaining entry into their meetings. I have also had the privilege of meeting a number of PETA staff and to a person they are obviously deeply dedicated to their brave calling. They are heroes in my book. This is urgent work and there is no point to playing nice with animal abusers.
Review for United Way of the Bay Area, San Francisco, CA, USA
United Way of the Bay continually challenges itself to raise the bar to improve the lives of families in the Bay Area. They are currently doing an astonishing job of bringing together community partners to establish SparkPoint Centers in the seven counties they serve - one-stop centers where anyone can go for resources to establish financial stability for self and family. Incredible things are happening. Go to youtube.com and search for SparkPoint American Canyon and you will see first-person stories. United Way of the Bay Area has tightened and sharpened its focus for the 21st century. They are governed by a volunteer board of expert professionals and you can see who they are at www.uwba.org, as well as learn a lot more about their work and how you can help your neighbors, too.
