What a great organization! Such friendly and helpful employees. You can really see their passion working towards this cause!
When my husband and I learned that our international adoption from China would be fast tracked we panicked. Though thus far we had financed our own adoption through savings and creative fundraising in our community we were suddenly looking at traveling in a matter of weeks, rather than months. Our agency recommended we apply to Brittany's Hope Foundation Seedling Grant and we were so glad we did! Brittany's Hope walked us through every step of the fundraising process and together we raised the necessary funds to bring our son home. What we really loved about Brittany's Hope is unlike other granting organizations they play it forward. The funds we raised will help another family bring their son or daughter home to their forever family. Truly the greatest gift there is.
We really appreciated Brittany's Hope. They made it so easy to fundraise. It's a very positive, uplifting, unique opportunity.
I am a student at Elizabethtown College, and this past May I was granted the opportunity to volunteer with Brittany's Hope Foundation and travel to the beautiful country of Vietnam to lend a helping hand. While in Vietnam, I was able to assist Brittany's Hope Foundation in improving the lives of children living in Brittany's Hope sponsored orphanages by delivering donated mattresses, formula, vitamins, clothes, toys, bikes, food, and most importantly love and care. This was the best experience I have ever had in my life and it will forever stay close to my heart. Brittany's Hope Foundation is one of the most successful non-profits I have ever come in contact with in the sense that they truly impact children positively all over the world. Their staff is compassionate and believes in the work they do which definitely shows through their work. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to work with the Brittany's Hope Foundation and hope to volunteer with them again in the future!
I recently volunteered for Brittany’s Hope Foundation (BHF) at their Walk of Love event on September 14th. As always, my experience working with the BHF was amazing. At the Walk of Love event, I was assigned simple tasks: moving boxes, setting up, moving food, cleaning, etc. Not many organizations can combine fun and efficient productivity, but they’ve got it down. There was no shortage of laughter even when we were running out of tables, losing boxes, losing our minds, and rushing to get things done in time
Their dedication to the foundation, its mission, and the overall message is indescribable. I noticed this most at the end of the 5K event when the cofounder gave a short speech. He briefly mentioned the origins of the foundation and ended with the importance of helping others. We hear it all the time, especially at Elizabethtown College whose motto is service learning. It’s just different to experience this on the larger scale that BHF works, which is ironic and impressive since BHF is such a small organization. Their helping hand reaches around the globe, as exemplified by the former orphans present at the 5K. I’m always left in awe after hearing their stories and witnessing first-hand the work that the foundation does, and the Walk of Love experience was no exception.
There are times in your life when you know the right thing to do. For me, Vietnam was the right thing at the right time. As the executive director of marketing and communications for Elizabethtown College I had heard amazing stories from faculty and students who had traveled before with Brittany's Hope. Admittedly, Vietnam wasn’t on my bucket list. Now I ask myself, having returned from this life changing experience of service outreach, “How could it not have been!?”
Every College administrator should be as blessed as I, to be given the opportunity to live and work alongside students in a foreign land-watching them laugh and cry with children who have so little. It was a complete privilege to join our students on this journey. I saw the best they have to offer and know they will make a difference in the world just as they have in the lives of these young people a half world away.
As college administrators we can’t lose sight of the valuable contribution life experiences like these provide for our students. Since returning from Vietnam, my life has changed in ways I never imagined. The trip has made me a better mother, a better administrator and a better human being.
This past May I went with Brittany's Hope to Vietnam and had the most amazing three weeks of my life. The work that Brittany's Hope does for children in foreign countries is remarkable! Plus all their workers are some of the friendliest, most passionate people I have ever met!
This past May, I went on a trip to Vietnam with the Brittany's Hope Foundation. While there, we worked in a number of different orphanages. This organization is truly outstanding. They really care about what they are doing and have such a positive impact on the lives of so many children. I would definitely tell everyone to get involved with Brittany's Hope! The two and a half weeks that I spent working with that organization truly changed my outlook on life. They are seriously amazing!
Brittanys Hope allows you to make a difference in the life of an orphan, Special needs orphans around the world. There are multiple options you can choose from, all donations are used 100% toward making the lives of these children better and or to help find them a family to love. I have chosen sponsorship of a little girl who has had more tradgedy in her life than most of us are blessed enough to never endure, yet she is a bright, courteous and giving child. She lives in Mom House now with other children like herself. Moms house is sponsored by Brittanys Hope and aids in the care of these children both physically and spiritually. I recieve letters from her and we are able to send her gifts in addtion to our sponsorship - our choice. It gives us great joy to be able to help one of these special children. I encourage anyone reading this to visit Brittanys Hope web site to learn of the many ways this awesome organization is changing the life of orphans, one child at a time.
Brittany's Hope is an organization of such integrity. They offer personal support and give all the money to the children and facility itself. It is not an abstract bureaucracy; when I called, I spoke to a daughter who had been adopted by the family who founded the organization. They do fantastic work with orphans whose outlooks are very bleak in Vietnam and cannot be legally adopted.
