FACES OF COURAGE FOUNDATION
July 22, 2009

I came to know this organization thru a breast cancer survivor and was quickly committed to making lives better for those that the organization serves. My passion is children and I will always do what is needed to help them make their camps happen. With funding being so short last year the Santa's Workshop almost didn't happen. Through the generosity of family and friends I was able to contribute a small amount of money. The children and families served would have nothing else during the holidays if not for this camp. Kudos to Peggy and all the volunteers that make this happen.

The Great!

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

The effect it has on children and their families cannot be put into words. The support it's breast cancer patients receive is immeasurable because most have no knowledge of what to expect and what services are available to them.

Ways to make it better...

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

Hire Peggy Sherry who has tremendous insight into womens needs and a passion like no therr.

More feedback

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

Knowing that I can help in some small way to make someone's life better. Meeting some incredible people along the way that fight for their lives everyday.

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

Staff and volunteers come from all walks of life with one goal ion mind helping others.

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

Help an unlimited number of people with an online service,additional camps, support groups and aid.

Ways to make it better...

There wasn't the constant stress about where we were going to get funding for the next camp.

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

Funding due to donation being down and the economy so depressed. We must find a new revenue stream in order to survive in todays economy.

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

As someone who has been unemployed due to the economy I will always find a way to serve. I can't do it financially but will always be there as a volunteer.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
