Help the Children
August 15, 2011
Help The Children manages to distribute essential resources to over 4,000 children and their families in Santa Clarita, CA, over 100,000 children and their families in Los Angeles, CA, 12 states in the USA, and 52 countries worldwide. Help The Children also manages to send resources to help areas affected by natural disasters, as well. Help The Children does all this with only a 1% overhead. Yes, out of every dollar, 99 cents goes directly to fill the need. They are able to do so much with so little due to the president's direction, amazing donation network, and the awesome volunteers that are responsible for most of the work that is accomplished. As a faith based non-profit humanitarian relief organization, I feel that Help The Children sets a standard by which other organizations should be measured.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I have seen mothers abandoned by husbands desperate to feed their children. Help The Children was able to provide the food they sought, and some have been comforted by the volunteers that were here to serve those in need.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
...organize a monster fundraiser. If Help The Children can do this much with so little, they could do so much more if they received better financial support.
Professional with expertise in this field & I volunteered for food distribution on weekends.
