I have nothing but amazing things to say about how On Behalf has helped me and my family with their monetary grant. My wife and I are blessed with these gorgeous identical twins, and my wife seeing the fiscal struggle it has been putting me in every month went looking for someone that could help. She quickly found this wonderful and honest organization and began working with the kind their staff. All without my knowledge, until one morning recently I saw an email with a monetary grant. No matter what the amount, every cent counts when I spend $300 on formula alone for two hungry 4 1/2 month old rug rats. This money allievated the stress for 2 months so that I may save in the interim and feel as if I am not drowning again.Thank you for the life preserver!!! God bless and I can not thank you enough for the help you have given my family.

Just as Mike did, I am without a doubt rating OnBehalf with 5 Stars. We work hard to make life "a little easier" for wounded Veterans and their families, and could not do it without the amazing help from friends, family, supporters, donors, and volunteers. It is with great pleasure to give back to those who have given their all.

Of course I'm going to give us 5 stars, I'm the founder and director! In all seriousness, we're honored you've worked with us as a contributor, donor or volunteer, and we're humbled by the courage and sacrifices of the wounded veterans we've helped. Thanks in advance for your review here on GreatNonprofits, and helping OnBehalf in their mission of assisting our injured vets from Iraq & Afghanistan. All the best, Mike Gifford
