ANGEL COVERS
September 10, 2013

Angel Covers squeezes more benefit out of each dollar than any organization I've ever encountered. We sponsor a child at Humble Hearts School for the Deaf in Nairobi and every one of our dollars goes directly to that child; no one at Angel Covers takes any salary and other incidental overhead (credit card fees, etc.) are covered by other fund-raising activities. We visited Humble Hearts in 2009 and found the director and staff are incredibly dedicated individuals. Teaching staff is paid, but at rates likely well below the market rates. The school also has a number of outside projects such as raising maize (corn) that help in supporting the school's operations.

Angel Covers does an amazing job in raising funds for a number of orphanages and other non-profits overseas. All staff are volunteer, so they operate with almost no overhead. In fact, if you donate via credit card, the fees they must pay are covered by sale of merchandise on their website, so 100% of your donation goes to the kids in need. Same with other unavoidable expenses like stamps.

The Great!

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

seeing the quality education the kids at Humble Hearts were receiving from the very dedicated (and humbly paid) staff at the school.

Ways to make it better...

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

expand its size so more schools like Humble Hearts could benefit from not only funding but from the very constructive relationship in other ways between the school and Angel Covers.
