Review for Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International (known as Kidpower), Santa Cruz, CA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

After calling them to give them feedback, my general impression is even lower than it was before. If you think a class is bad, try disagreeing with them after.

Role:  General Member of the Public & was not helped.

Review for Project Purr, Santa Cruz, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Just found the Great Non-Profits site tonight. Was posting a review for something else (unfortunately a very bad experience) when one of my "fur babies" jumped in my lap. Thank you, Project Purr, for bringing these super sweet little kitties into my life.

We had a great initial meeting, a smooth adoption, and 2 (!) cute additions to our family.

We continue to send the foster parents updates. Thank you for helping these small beings who need someone!

Role:  Client Served & adopted 2 cats.

Review for Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International (known as Kidpower), Santa Cruz, CA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Someone once told me - if everyone is thinking alike then somebody isn't thinking.

Five stars, unanimously, across the board? Odd. Except for one or two reviews? Super huge clue they are having their staff write (and churn) reviews.

Bad form. While not prohibited, staff reviews are discouraged, and many of these reviewers specifically identify themselves as staff.

I attended a workshop. under pressure from other parents in my kids age range.

Total BS. Tons of common sense, with a healthy dose of fear mongering and fund raising.

Thanks for the cult induction, but I haven't sipped the Kool Aid.

They teach your kids just enough to get in trouble, but not enough to defend themselves. It's self defense - light - kind of, not effectively.

If you are impressed by their supposed "martial arts" credentials, then make sure you research their co-founder, Timothy Dunphy. He claims to be able to heal people by connecting their "chi" with their "aura" via music and light. (http://www.chiaura.com/)

If you believe that, sign your kids up for a Kidpower workshop and "believe" they are safer.

Role:  Client Served & client at a workshop.
