I have the honor and blessing of knowing Shernet James and she is what makes One Love 4 Kids a successful and amazing nonprofit. Her hard work and determination result in putting smiles on the faces of children. Members of my church, Seneca Creek, joined with Shernet to have a day of service for children. We gave out stuffed animals, clothes and treats. We had a children's author read to the children. We had a crafts table where the kids could make their own bookmarks. It was a wonderful day of love and fun. What could be more important than making a difference in the life of a child. Hats off to Shernet!!!

info207 Thank you Cami for the support. Please continue to spread the word about us and our work. Tutoring, scholarships, supply (clothing, education, food, medical…) distributions, literacy programs, and community outreach programs are just some ways in which One Love 4 Kids has been changing lives (US, Jamaica, Africa...) and impacting the world. It’s an honor to be the founder of an organization that has been changing lives for more than 6 years. One Love 4 Kids is a 100% lead volunteer organization that aims to meet the needs of children and families affected by poverty and abuse. Programs are carried out with limited recourses and financial support. Nevertheless, One Love 4 Kids strives to set a high standard of leadership as it continues to focus on the needs of the people and the positive impact being made in the lives of others and the world. One Love 4 Kids is about changing lives for the better. And the organizations’ education development programs, community outreach programs, and health programs have been doing so for over 6 years. Don’t believe me? Just our donors and recipients who have all benefited from being a part of a true Grassroots organization that works tirelessly to fulfill its mission on a daily basis What makes One Love 4 Kids special is that the organization considers it an honor to serve the people. As a result, One Love 4 Kids is always grateful for the hundreds of women, children and men who make it possible for us to be a small organization that is making a huge impact. Our donors and volunteers are the backbone of this organization and we could not have gotten this far without all of you. But there is still much more that One Love 4 Kids need in org to be successful. So please take the time to learn about our work and us. And as always, your support is appreciated and needed. As donations have continued to decrease, the need of the goods and services that we provide has remained high. As a result, we are always looking for additional ways to increase our funding as we continue to meet the needs of those who need our love and assistance. Join me in supporting One Love 4 Kids. We can change lives for the better. Shernet Dixon-James

I met the Founder and CEO of One Love 4 Kids, Inc. in 2010 when she volunteered to partner with me on a project. Shernet James and I partnered for the next four (4) years. Her organization, One Love 4 Kids, Inc. has helped me by providing funds for i) a nutrition program and ii) a sports program at a primary school in Jamaica. Some of the children also received personal effects, clothes, shoes etc.

With very limited funds, this organization has managed to host summer school programs for needy children. Volunteers and children were provided with lunch.

I am amazed now (as I was back then) as to how charitable, forward-thinking, tenacious and multi-faceted Shernet James is. She possesses a wealth of ideas on how to positively affect the lives of under-served and at-risk children globally.

One Love 4 Kids, Inc. has also provided tutoring services to children at no cost to families. Children were fed and instructed in spaces that were rented.

The efforts of this organization are thwarted by lack of funding. More volunteers are also needed.

I would love to see One Love 4 Kids, Inc. grow exponentially and reach more at-risk children.

This organization has helped to transform the lives of children not only in the United States, but also internationally. Its grassroots efforts help to bring hope and inspiration to communities of children in need, as well as tangible resources that will impact their lives and continue to position them for success.

I have personally volunteered at a One Love 4Kids event, where I was afforded the opportunity to see firsthand of the joy that children received from being gifted with such necessities as clothing, shoes, books and more. This is the type of work that needs to be visible as well as celebrated!

To whom it may concern
One love4kids is a non-profit organization serving various school and communities within Kingston and St Andrew and the wider Island for over four years. As the teacher responsible for students and staff welfare I can speak on behalf of the Clancarthy School family in regards to the many and various assistance obtain from this organization.
At Clancarthy High School our students and staff have benefited in the form of clothing, foot wear, counseling, personal care items, books and school supplies and refreshment during the year end social gathering.
As we look forward to the end of the calendar year we anticipate the usual supplies to cheer those in need as they are awaiting your usual kind gesture. Let me use this medium to say thanks in advance as we await your usual response.
Yours in service

I have worked with many non-profits as both a volunteer and a board member (elected and appointed). Therefore, it is an honor for me to give the highest review to CASACO. The President, Shernet Dixon-James, works tirelessly to empower and enrich the students in Jamaica. Each year they send greater numbers of school supplies and provide positive role models for the Jamaican community. Keep up the good work. I have the belief that "our world is empowered by ordinary citizens giving of themselves extraordinarily".

The Caribbean Student and Community Outreach Foundation is playing a great role in providing food, clothing, school supplies, books, toys and much more to over 1000 children and their families in the Island of Jamaica. I have had first-hand experience with the CASACO Foundation from the very inception of its development, in providing professional advice with respect to its Charter and obtaining its 501(C)3 status.

The educational and social needs of children in Jamaica are overwhelmingly grave, and CASACO Foundation is on the right path in helping to fulfil that need. I support CASACO's vision and will continue to do what I can to enhance its mission.

Jamaica and other Caribbean nations are often looked at for their beautiful beaches, warm sunshine, good food and more. But, too often we forget some of the real issues that plague these nations. CASACO Foundation is doing an awesome thing by championing efforts to further educate and inspire young people throughout various communities.

I am very familiar with the founders of this organization and strongly support their efforts to reach masses of young people, through their various program initiatives. They are working to open a library, to partner with local teachers to enhance the educational experience for kids as well as open a computer lab to further advance the skillsets of these young individuals; presenting them with opportunities to utilize what they have learned to enhance their quality of life.

Winning the Winter 2011 GuideStar-KIMBIA Nonprofit giveaway would help the CASACO Foundation to impact many lives and help to steer a generation in the right direction. Please support their efforts with this award.
