When I was asked to be a Board member of Because One Matters (BOMS), I did not hesitate. BOMS has been instrumental in the lives of foster children from birth to adulthood. We have grown and continues to have a positive impact on foster children. Many children never had a birthday party and unfortunately foster children usually is more than likely never to celebrate their birthday with a party. The joy on their faces at the parties are priceless. I am proud to be a part of BOMS and we will continue to help foster children in every way possible.

Because One Matters is a great nonprofit organization! The impact they leave on the lives of community is so amazing. The organization hosts birthday parties for the Gwinnett County Foster Care system and the smiles on these children faces are priceless. The joy and love they feel on a day that may have not always been so special is heart melting. The appreciation of such an event is also shown on the Foster Care parents as well. This organization helps whenever possible such a back to school drives, care packages to help with new assignments and providing meals. I have watched this organization grow and hope the growth continues and the impact is amazing on many lives thus far.

Because One Matters has changed the lives of so many children. Many kids get tossed into Foster care and are often forgot about. I think it’s a blessing that this organization gives these children a chance to feel loved and a part of a family that cares. The events that Because One Matters hosts have been truly inspiring to watch. The time and effort that each team member puts in just to see the kids filled with joy, just reaffirms that it truly takes a village to raise a child.

Because One Matters Organization is the definition of Faith in Action. They do not just sit back and write checks, they are completely hands on and are making a huge difference in the lives of foster children and families. From their birthday parties to their annual back to school drive, I have personally seen the smiles on the children's faces and the hard work that goes on behind the scene. This is an organization that I truly believe in and I know God has His hand in all they do.

Their generosity, patience, and just plain old passion for serving foster kids is amazing. The smiles and excitement that is displayed on each child's face as they receive and open their gift, is priceless. It is just something about meeting the needs of children, especially those that are less fortunate. I dare anyone who has a passion for kids, to volunteer their time with this organization and watch how it change your life.
