An Orphan's Bright Star is a great charity that does important work for children. Working to serve children who are often otherwise forgotten, An Orphan's Bright Star works to see that a child's daily needs are met in the orphanages they work with in Eastern Europe; but they also try to ensure that the children get some extra happiness. Fun is the right of children, and An Orphan's Bright Star builds playgrounds in orphanages as well.

We are active volunteers in the community, and respect other nonprofit organizations where the money actually finds its way to the people in need. OBS volunteers are dedicated, positive and have completed several very impressive projects that required a lot of fundraising and coordination. Especially for an all-volunteer organization, their work is incredible.

Over the years, I have seen what an awesome job that Orphans Bright Star has done for many orphans and adoptees. They are constantly raising money to make life better for the orphans that don't get adopted or are not available for adoption. They even help with medical expenses when their own government won't. They help put shoes on their feet and clothing on their backs. Many children have only 1 pair of shoes and frequently they don't fit right, this group helps the children get several pairs so if one pair gets wet, they have dry ones to wear. They also help with hygiene items and remodel bathrooms so the kids have at least some type of sanitary facilities. This is a great group that does so much.
