I have been supporting Save the Children for the last 5 years. I am grateful that there are organizations with staff that are so committed to those in need of help. The impact that they have made with children in remote parts of the world is astounding. Keep up the amazing work. For anyone that is trying to decide on a children's or if they should support a children's charity. I strongly advise supporting Save the Children. Dave from Boston
I truly believe in the power of setting an example. Supporting the outstanding work of Save the Children over these last 10 yrs has most certainly influenced my daughter to go into international service! Thank you Sabe the Children!
When I was looking for a great cause to get involved in, a friend who’s worked all over the world for organizations like the UN and UNICEF recommended Save the Children. That was years ago, and i’ve been so thrilled, so filled with the experience that I recently got a third child. Now I have one in El Salvador, one in Egypt, and one in the U.S.! Thank you, Save the Children, for the transformative work you do bringing people together. It’s the only way toward world peace.
I first was approached by Save the Children on the street. One of the local college kids had been asking random people in Venice walking by if they'd like to join what was essentially a monthly sum to a child in a faraway, difficult land.
I was taken by the directness of how the funds would reach the child. I decided to donate, and sponsor a child in the Philippines.
Later, i was lucky enough to meet the legendary Bill Haber through some business contacts. After inviting me to some further events, I was approached with the opportunity to visit Bolivia and see the wonderful work being done.
Visiting the Save the Children sites in Bolivia was hands down the most incredible experience i've ever been a part of: seeing how children have the power and potential to rebuild the worlds around them was a visceral experience that has forever changed me.
I can't recommend enough Save the Children as a nonprofit. The work that they do stretches dollars for beyond their intention, and the direct work with kids, and how effective the work is on their lives is unparalleled.
Save the Children is doing great work around the world. About five years ago, we gave our two children sponsorships as part of their Christmas present. They both sponsor a child in Ethiopia their same age and gender, and have found it to be a great experience. Two years ago, they asked to sponsor two more children in Uganda. They love exchanging letters with the kids and learning about their lives. Save the Children is making a difference for kids all over the world, improving healthcare, education and livelihoods. Thank you for all you do!
I'm very impressed with Save the Children's impact, they really make a difference. And I love that US kids are being helped as well as children around the world. I sponsor 2 kids, and give to every emergency. It must be so hard for the staff on the ground, to see so much need and suffering close up. They really care about children. And they get great ratings from the charity watchdogs so I feel good about spending my money with them.
I have been a Save the Children sponsor for a couple of years now, because a friend of mine was already a sponsor. And more people should do it - especially with an organization as trustworthy as Save the Children. I became involved after visiting part of the developing world in Africa, where I felt somewhat hopeless and wanted to do something. So this friend recommended I sponsor a child there, which I do now and I am expanding my list of sponsored children every year, including a child in New Mexico. It's gratifying, and I know my money is being put to good use. Save the Children knows how to get things done, plain and simple. Every organization that raises money will send you things via the mail, etc - that's what they do. I also work with a wonderful animal shelter and I have an inside view on their fundraising - you have to do those kind of things to raise money to keep the lights on and do the great work these groups do! If you don't like the mailings, just pitch them - or give them to someone. But spending $28 a month or giving a donation to Save the Children will be the best donation you've ever made.
I respect Save the Children -- for its mission and its results. Every child deserves a future -- and Save the Children does whatever it takes to make sure they have it. They make sure children grow up healthy, educated and safe. They take care of children's unique needs when crisis strikes. They are outspoken champions for children's rights.
Plus they get stellar reviews from every rating agency, so I know my support is well spent.
I have been a donor for nearly 30 years. Save the Children does great work around the world and here at home. It was founded on the simple belief that every child has the right to a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm.
Save the Children is transforming homes and classrooms across the country and around the world, giving moms and dads the helping hand they need and giving kids a change to reach their full potential. It is a truly 5-star worthy organization.
I have had the amazing opportunity to work with and donate to this charity for almost two years. The work that they do in helping children around the world is truly remarkable. I have the utmost confidence that my donations are being used to their fullest potential.
I'm a grateful donor to Save the Children. I've supported a child in Malawi for a year now, and have loved getting updates on her progress and the chance to learn more about how the money I've donated is helping her.
Great, reputable, transparent and well organized federation. My Family have been sponsoring 2 kids (1 in Bangladesh and 1 in USA), for the last 2 years and it has been very rewarding. Teaching the value of giving back to my kids at very early age is priceless. We have to make a better place for them! It is very easy to sponsor. Save the Children's internet page, allow you to choose the country and program that you will like to sponsor. They send you regular updates and reports with accomplishments. Even my child was able to have an active roll during International Day of the Girl in NY. I was moved with all the good and positive things that this organization has been doing. Congratulations to Save the children !! Thanks for the chance to be part of it and make the difference!
I just made a donation to them for Hurricane Matthew. I gave to them during the earthquakes in Haiti and Nepal too and they were responsible and reported to me about how my donation was used.
Save the Children is a great reputable organization that I have the pleasure of working with and donating to. I trust that my donation is being used efficiently and truly making a difference.
I have had the privilege to partner with Save the Children's field teams from Tennessee, to Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, and this year, South Carolina. I have personally met exceptional team members on each visit who have dedicated their heart and soul to improving the lives of our most underserved population.
I cannot think of another national non-profit that is so deserving of our support, our funds and our hearts. They truly live by these heartfelt words: USE YOUR POWER FOR GOOD.
So grateful to be able to find organizations that do the work that enables children around the world to have a better life, or life at all. I am disabled and see the stories about so so many people, more than I can fathom, around the world, suffering from things I can not even imagine. So, I can't do much, but I can give money to those who can help, that I trust completely, and Save The Children is one of those. So thank you to them.

I have donated via Save The Children Australia after seeing the work they do in all parts of the world, and here in Australia.
There should be more like them!
Save the Children is a top-notch charity. It excels as an efficient organization that provides a significant percentage to actual programs for the betterment of lives in need. They are in the upper crust of charitable organizations in my opinion because of their focus on EDUCATION & SUSTAINABILITY as well as basic needs such as immunizations, food/clean water, resources and disaster relief. Their philosophy of providing training to ensure families and communities are able to sustain themselves to break the cycle of poverty is empowering and allows preparedness in the face of crisis. When I did my research a decade ago, I went with them as a well-run non-denominational charity with an effective approach and I'm happy to see they have been consistent in their integrity. A big THANK YOU always to the workers at my sponsored child's field office as well as those around the world. Thank you for your dedication, hard work and care.
Hau`oli Mau Loa Foundation has had a long term funding relationship with Save the Children. We are in regular communication with staff, receive reports and updates and participate in teleconferences or briefings, meet annually with program and development staff, and two years ago were able to do a field visit with staff in Mozambique. We have consistently been impressed with the outstanding quality of the people who work at all levels of Save. They have been excellent partners in helping us better understand, communicate and accomplish our goals in humanitarian relief.
As a result of being a child sponsor with Save the Children for about seven years I have come to know a number of Save the Children employees personally. I can tell you first hand of their passion for the work that they do and for the children that they support. This organization provides desperately needed help for millions of the most needy children in the world in the areas of nutrition, education and newborn survival. In addition, they are expert at rapidly responding to the needs of communities hit by a sudden crisis situation or natural disaster. If asked, I would urge anyone to lend their support to Save the Children!
as a holiday gift i sponsor two children. the children were chosen by my grandchildren and instead of gifts to the grandchild each child has agreed to go with out gifts in order to sponsor these children. i thought it would be away to lean about many things. in three years there has been no correspondence from the child or from a representative from save the children. i am seriously thinking of stopping this sponsorship and look into another group. when i have called the office they suggested that i go on line to find some suggestion. i found that unhelpful as my computer skills are limited and it did not work.
any suggestions are welcome.
