Angel Covers is a small, highly effective NGO that supports a school for the deaf in Nairobi and an orphanage in China. Director Kari Fillmore is highly dedicated and works for no salary, indeed, paying many Angel Covers-related expenses from her own pocket; hence, administrative overhead is negligible (stamps, etc. are about all). Several other administrative volunteers also work for no salary. Funds are raised through individual contributions, an annual fund raiser dinner, contributions through the AmazonSmile program, and other sources.
I have been a donor since the inception of this wonderful non-profit foundation. Several years ago when my daughter, the founder of Angel Covers, asked if I'd also volunteer, I was proud to do so. I know of no other foundation with such an exceptional record of accomplishments while doing so using only volunteers from all over the world. No one involved in Angel Covers receives any financial benefit but does receive a great deal of personal gratification. Angel Covers consists of a passionate group of people making a difference in many ways, in many places, for many children. Truly an outreach from the hearts of individuals to children in need.
I've been a fan of this non profit since its inception. They never loose their enthusiasm, drive, and desire to seek out ways to help the suffering and disadvantaged children of the world. It's unbelievable all the good that is happening with a totally volunteer foundation. I know of no other non profit that contributes over 95% of all monies directly to its mission and vision.
We heard of Kari several years ago. We became donors, and have been constantly impressed with the dedication and compassion that she gives to children everywhere. Every penny raised for Angel Covers is used for the children and/or their direct benefit, and she squeezes each one for its' full value !! This is an amazing group, and we support and admire them so much.
Angel Covers is a modest but mighty and effective organization. I have been a donor for many years and a volunteer. I know well that funds are used frugally with careful consideration for their most effective work. --a great investment of our financial and energy support!
GREAT organization. Hardworking, dedicated; all moneys support the interests and needs of the children Angel Covers has sought to partner with and assist. Proud to be a part of this nonprofit.
Provides baby formula to the orphanage where my daughter is from!
Angel Covers helps so many children around the world. The program that is near and dear to my heart is their nutritional support at Huaibei, Anhui Social Welfare Institute where my youngest daughter spent several months when she was an infant. Please visit their website and see all the great things they are doing! You can send your support with confidence that you will be making a very positive impact in a child's life.
I have known of this charity and its great work since its inception. I can't think of another charity that does such great work and uses nearly 100% of the donations received to serve its clients. Thank you Angel Covers for all the work that you do.
I have been donating to Angel Covers for several years and I could not prouder to donate to this wonderful organization. They not only use the funds that are donated in a most efficient manner, but they report about their expenses on a regular basis. I am happy to support such a wonderful charitable organization.
I have been both a volunteer and a donor to Angel Covers. I have supported a student until she graduated, have made blankets that went over to Chinese orphanages, and have bought gift cards as Christmas gifts for teachers, relatives and friends to support various programs that Angel Covers manages. I love to see the results of the time and money I have donated doing good for so many children who are in great need of this assistance.
AngelCovers is an amazing organisation of volunteers supporting children. This is my way of giving back to the country where my adoptive girls were born. Knowing tha I am supporting minority girls has been wonderful and thanks to the assistance by AngelCovers I was able to meet the current sponsored students last year and my colleagues students and to visit their homes. It was AMAZING - the most amazing feeling was felt with those who had the least - to see them smile despite their difficulties was amazing. And their lifestyle is so simple and yet the hospitality was amazing offering you a homemade tiny stool next to their manure fired fuel stoves with home made breads and yak tea (OK they joke because yak is a male not female, the female yak has a more difficult name us Westerners can't easily say).
I can not say enough good things about AngelCovers and their support of Tibetan girls in their China program - it is top class. They keep focussed on supporting as many students as possible despite the limited facilities.
The hospitality, the anticipation for their futures, the gorgeous mountains, yaks and sheep running along the mountainsides are things I will never forget. And the AngelCover staff are so supportive - thank you Kari, Angela, Rinchen and others.
We've supported Angel Covers for many years now. We are on our third college student now and have graduated two doctors! What a difference these girls will make in the world but also change the perspective in their small villages that believes girls should be married off at young ages. Angel Covers definitely has their heart in the right place and communicate well with their donors. I believe the best way to change the world is through education.
I discovered Angel Covers while researching my annual holiday charity (something my family does at Christmas in place of exchanging gifts.) I was initially impressed with the fact that 98 percent of the donations go directly to the children. My little girl is Blantina at the Humble Hearts School in Nairobi. I have her smiling photo tacked to my fridge. My monthly donation is automatically taken out of my PayPal account, and each month I get a heartfelt thank you note. When I sent Blantina a package, Ida emailed a personal acknowledgement with photos of the happy recipient holding her items. Helping others through monetary donations does not get any better than this. I intend to sponsor Blantina until she is a successful graduate!
