Akshaya USA
March 2, 2011

I first heard about Akshaya USA from a video of the founder, and the charities work on Facebook. I googled the founder to find out more about the charity so I could donate. I was incredible impressed when I received a reply with a thank you for my donation and a proof of payment with tax-deductible information. I gave a small donation, around $50 however, I felt I was being treated as if I was a large donor, respecting my time and donation to an incredible worthy cause.
I am so impressed with the work of this charity that I thought about offering my services as a volunteer in any position, when I finish college in the future. The work of Akshaya keeps hundreds, if not thousands of people from dying from malnutrition and starvation each week. A future donation, scholarship or award, can literally keep hundreds of people from literally dying. I would only suggest one thing, that the charity sends emails reminders, and even "begging letters" to remind us all of their list that more needs to be done and donations are always happily accepted!
