I cannot speak highly enough about this organization. Its founder, Eric Best, has a huge heart, a generous spirit, and an immense love for Christ. Those qualities are poured into each and every program the organization undertakes. From looking out for the senior citizens in the community to helping the youth achieve greater educational success, IYBS' only aim is to HELP--and it accomplishes that aim honestly, fairly, generously, and without distinction. It's been an honor to contribute to and work with this organization, and I'd recommend it without reservation.

my store isn't anything that this foundation has done for me, but what it has done for other. I've learn more about the love of giving through this foundation, well I guess it has done something for me. I met the founder of this foundation as he was speaking to a group of people, he caught my attention as he shared what his plans where to help the community. My girlfriend lean over and said, sound like something you were talking about with regards to helping others. Since then I believe three years ago, I begin to start my journey of helping because I was inspired my the founder of this organization. Sadly to say, things didn't work out so well for my, I allowed situation to cloud my direction. But I watch and listened to all the things this foundation has done in the community and just giving every year all year long, nothing has stopped them from moving forward, each year it seem something new is added to the list of how much more they can give and helping all ages of people. As me and the founder of this great organization has talk through the years, he still has the same passion and emotion he had from the beginning. I just want to Thanks Wayne for all that he does, and how he still inspires me to pull myself together and get back on my journey. I know he couldn't have done all he does without a great team of people. So to It's Your Best Shot Team, greater is before you....

Working in an intercity school I get to see many children wishing they had uniforms to wear like all the other children, I'm glad to be able to say that "It's Your Best Shot" has given them that opportunity. Thank you for giving hope and comfort to my students.

It's your best shot is a wonderful non-profit that has fundamental roots in advocacy for well being and lifting up your fellow neighbor. With principles that are good Samaritan in nature they offer services of providing health and security in local communities that are usually under-served and over looked. They work with the young and old alike. The results of their efforts are current and up to date with what is happening at the time in the community so that the most urgent needs are being met . Throughout the summer months they provide many seniors with air conditioners to keep them cool when internal temperatures don't necessarily register for them. They also provide assistance with food and hunger prevention. 40 families were able to receive $50 gift cards when a tornado struck the area in June. They truly believe in giving others support so that one is able to be free to give life their best shot at all times. They recently completed a back to school drive where they supplied more than 120 children with $25 gift cards towards school uniforms. 98% of all donations go right back into the communities that they serve. Being a small non-profit with an executive director limiting his own take home income allows them to do that.

It's Your Best Shot (IYBS) is truly about helping the community. I was so pleased to know that my donation went towards helping senior citizens get air conditioning units for their homes/apartments. The elderly in our neighborhoods often get overlooked or forgotten, but IYBS has created a ministry to aid our older citizens.

IYBS also looks out for our children, providing much needed supplies to students in need. This organization provides real help in a tangible way to those with real needs, and they love what they do. This is a true ministry about helping people. I would not hesitate to give to this ministry again.

I can't talk enough about this organization. The founder Eric Best has a large heart and when they help you they don't make you feel like your beneath them. You know sometimes you need a hand up not a handout and this is the way they make you feel. This organization help so many people . I wish she was more organization is out here like this one because a lot of the other organization have a hidden agendas. So God bless you and keep up the good work.

I received a brand new air conditioner from IYBS. I made a call and received a response within 2 hours. The only questions was ur name address and if u needed it to be installed and who referred you. I had just got out the hospital and to hear they were giving me an air conditioner to help out with my breathing was a huge relief. I pray the Lord continues to bless the company to grow bigger so they're able to expand and help more people. I can't thank them enough. To work a full time job and get off to go help other is amazing. They have fund raiser to help get what they need to help out other. Please go to their website and see all the wonderful things this organization is doing to help the seniors and people in need. Again thanks Eric Best May God continue to bless IYBS and all your families for what u do. Pam walker

I was excited to be able to help those in need through IYBS. The funds were actually used to benefit those in need. My donations provided such things as school supplies for children starting back to school, air conditions for seniors and food boxes to needy families.

Its Your Best Shot blossomed from one man's generous heart into a wonderful giving organization that touches the hearts of many. I have donated to IYBS several times to help those in need and I know that my donations have given school supplies to children, air conditioners to the elderly or infirmed, and food to families at the holidays, just to point out a few examples. This organization is all about giving back and helping those in need. If each one of us gives just a little, we can do a lot! Keep up the amazing work IYBS!
