Review for Alexandra Chiles Foundation, Menlo Park, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Alexandra Chiles Foundation creates bead kits for children in hospitals. It provides the kids the opportunity to enjoy crafting and to create gifts they can give to others. As volunteers, my daughter and I assemble the bead kits in our home. Simple activities that we can do together while talking or watching TV. A great way to help children in need from the comfort of your own home.

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

the wonderful time my daughter and I have had together writing notes to the sick children and putting together these great craft kits that will provide them with something other than TV/video games to pass the time. Enjoy enabling sick children being able to do something for someone else.

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

add the opportunity to deliver kits directly to the hospital.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely
