I was on a student consulting project with MiracleFeet and went to the Phillippines to see their operations. They really bring impacts to the local community and support families and children with clubfoot.

MiracleFeet is an outstanding organization that partnered with our consulting practicum course at Duke to improve inventory management practices. We traveled to the Philippines and witnessed the care and passion of MiracleFeet employees firsthand at partner clinics in Manila.

This is a charity everyone needs to get behind. They are making a real difference in eliminating untreated club foot. They are finding new ways to become involved in more countries and to make the treatment more economical in low income countries. They have my full support!

MiracleFeet is the reason why thousands of kids around the world can walk, run and play, abilities most take for granted. About 1 in 1000 kids will be born with this fairly easy to treat condition if you can get access to treatment. MiracleFeet has made their mission to help these kids by reaching out to those families who would be left to themselves otherwise. I was born with clubfoot myself and I can attest that a small gesture in the beginning of life makes all the difference later on.

MiracleFeet is an incredible example of a nonprofit that is making a tangible difference in the lives of those it serves. Effective clubfoot treatment has a lifelong effect on patients, their families, and their communities, and MiracleFeet's model of training in-country providers makes this effect broader and sustainable. Through interning with MiracleFeet I have seen that they are really preventing lifelong disability, and I couldn't be prouder of the work we do.

My son was born with clubfoot. For his first birthday we chose to raise money for other children with clubfoot. We chose miraclefeet as the charity because we love all they do to help around the world. I recommend using miraclefeet for sure. The whole experience was easy and seamless. We felt very happy that we were able to contribute to help another child with clubfoot.

Miraclefeet is our new and favorite non profit. It has personal meaning to my husband and I. His daughter was born with club feet and has overcome so many challenges to lead a beautiful full life. We thank God that she was born in the USA. This made it easier to get the help she needed. Children in other countries are not as fortunate. This is why we decided to become a regular donor. We know that this money will help to change lives. We could not be happier with our choice of non profit. Go, Miraclefeet!

MiracleFeet does amazing work for children with clubfoot. Our son has clubfoot and has excellent care but many do not, and that is where MiracleFeet comes in. Every interaction we have had with them has been wonderful/

MiracleFeet is one of the greatest organizations that exists. They go above and beyond helping children, who cannot walk, across the world. Giving the child the ability to walk and run, and experience life is one of the greatest gifts one can give to a child. As a physician, I can attest, that the medical care they provide for these children is goes above and beyond our gold standard of care. Being born with club feet is a debilitating issue for a child. However, this organization, is truly changing lives. I am happy to support this organization.

Supporting Miraclefeet is such a concrete way to help a child in need. I'm still astounded at what a relatively small dollar amount is required for this life-changing treatment. Really hard to equal or surpass this organization in terms of the lasting "bang for the buck" brought about by any donation!

It's incredible how this simple piece of medical technology is literally changing and saving lives around the globe. They make it possible for children to not only walk, but to run, to work and to live full lives.

In 2014, I became aware of miraclefeet and became a donor. This summer I joined the miraclefeet team as the Director of Marketing, my first foray into working on the staff of a non-profit. Wow! My first week here I participated in an offsite, full staff retreat and was on-boarded with a new Program Manager. We met with each member of our team, that graciously and enthusiastically gave of their time and expertise to get us up to speed quickly. The miraclefeet team is a tireless group of smart people approaching the treatment of clubfoot in low resource communities like any for-profit, entrepreneurial start up there is.

Now that I am up and running, the way miraclefeet works within each country, clinic, and even individual care providers where needed, is nothing short of incredible. Our Program Team work collaboratively to support different needs, cultures and clinics in the way that best suits each of their needs to provide care and treatment for children born with clubfoot. Since clubfoot is not treated quickly, care providers establish a relationship with their patients, likewise, our team creates and supports care providers so they can support their patients.

miraclefeet worked with partners to design and produce an award-winning, inexpensive-to-produce brace so that each child can be completely treated for $250.

Our Executive Director has vision and has grown miraclefeet from her kitchen table and a staff of one to a team of 12 dedicated professionals working to support treatment of 12, 000 kids in 14 countries. Our Director of Philanthropy is working on innovative fundraising strategies in the US and also internationally, so that clinics can become more locally self sustaining, with an in-country donor base.

It's amazing. It's all good. It is a terrific organization doing incredible, successful work.

Our daughter, Brooklynn, was born with clubfoot. When she turned 1 year old we held a birthday party for her and asked guests to donate to miraclefeet instead of bringing birthday presents. We have been fortunate to receive exceptional care for Brooklynn's clubfoot, and this allowed us the opportunity to help those in need, with a cause that is meaningful to our family. Our miraclefeet fundraiser was a very proud moment for Brooklynn and our entire family. We will continue to support miraclefeet and the enormous impact they have on many lives. Thank you miracelfeet.

I was first introduced to miraclefeet when I was on a service trip in Peru and we met a girl who suffered from clubfoot. I interned with miraclefeet helping organize fundraisers and soccer clinics to raise money and awareness for the organization. miraclefeet is a small organization having huge impact worldwide in its mission to eliminate clubfoot in low resource countries. miraclefeet is so efficient it can change a child's life forever for only $250. Clubfoot is a common birth defect, affecting one of every 750 children born worldwide. Clubfoot is routinely treated at birth in the US which is why many people have never heard of it. miraclefeet spreads awareness of this birth defect not only internationally, but also through close relationships with local high school students.
