This ministry has blessed and relieved countless broken and hopeless lives. The staff and volunteers work compassionately and tirelessly to spread God's mercy, love, and messege of hope. They expertly and courageously send food, diasaster supplies, and medical relief globally. I have never known another ministry with such integrity and character. God Bless You Help The Children! Thank you for being the loving arms and helping hand to those we cannot serve on our own.
During 2008, at he age of 43, I found myself out-of-work, and wondering what is next. For the first time in my life, I felt alone even though I had a family of my own.
God works in mysterious ways and I can prove it. At the age of 43, I had my second child (Healthy, smart, and beautiful.)
In the name of God, Roger and Roxana Presgrove gave me a chance to help others who needed support. In addition, I was able to help this wonderful organization by providing support, time, talent, and commitment to our synergy.
Thank you for the opportunity!
I've been to the volunteer days at their warehouse and have also assisted withs the golf tournaments in the past. It has been truly my pleasure to be a part of both of events. The volunteer days are the best, where upon arrival, you are met by Roger and his staff, who tell you about CNI, what they've done, and what you would be doing that day. You put together care boxes that are then used for relief where it is needed. The inner city, foreign countries, disaster areas, etc. It really hits home that you are personally doing something that will benefit people in need. It makes you feel good. I try to take people who don't know about the organization, but have a heart to do voluntary work like this so they can
a. see for themselves firsthand how an organization like this operates
b. see that CNI is truly a great organization
c. that the love of Christ does exist in the world, and that Christians are just regular people too.
Help the Children/Children's Network Int. reflects the characteristics of the founder, Roger Presgrove. Roger has a true heart for those in need and for reaching them with the love of God. He's very humble and reliant on the generosity and work of volunteers to accomplish the mission. You can be assured that there is a great focus on minimizing the overhead to have the highest direct flow through of resources to the people in need. This is truly an outstanding organization.
Help the Children has been very great with all of the contributions that they have done throughout the years. I volunteered many years and every year I was very impressed with the amount of quality work they do daily. You see with all of the donations they receive they improve the quality of life of millions of people and they help with all of the disaters that happen. They always send help to various emergency disasters within the United States and in other countries. You see even today they are building a children's hospital in Guatemala (helping the poor families in Guatemala). Help the Children is a great organization and as a volunteer I can testify that they make a positive difference in people's life
Review from CharityNavigator
I have supported Children's Network International for many years. What excites me the most about this organization is, they stretch they their resources to the max to reach so many
This is also the Military Family Assistance Paks. I sent them money in March 2011. In early May 2011, I got a letter filled with trinkets and address labels and was chastised for not having contributed to thier mission in quite a while! The opening to thier letter said, "I'm going to be perfectly honest with you: I've sent you these gifts- a keychain, address labels, seals & a notepad- because you haven't contributed to our mission in quite some time." I never committed to a monthly donation and certainly did not order any key chains, note pads and address labels. In fact, I am sick to death of getting address labels from every Tom, Dick & Harry. I am UNIMPRESSED by this organization's tactics. I have told them to take me off their mailing list.
