Review for Islamic Relief USA, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first started volunteering for Islamic Relief two years ago. I remember how excited I was for the chance at volunteering for such a good cause. I have spent countless hours volunteering at the IR USA office and at their special events and I am proud to say that I am a better person because of it. Volunteering for IR USA has not only provided me with the necessary skills I need for working in the real world, but it has also opened my eyes to all the hardships and sufferings going on around the world and realizing that not everyone is as privileged as I am. Knowing that because of my effort, whether it was simply entering data into a computer or ushering people to their seats at a fundraising dinner, somewhere in the world, I helped to put a smile on a person's face. And to me that is what really matters. Islamic Relief operates not as a business, but as a caring family, reaching out to those in need, not holding back on help because of a person's religion, background or culture. In the eyes of IRUSA, a person in need is a person in need, no matter who they are. I am so blessed to have been able to volunteer with such a wonderful organization and better yet, to have become part of the IRUSA family.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

recieving updated information constantly about my family's sponsored orphan.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help make this organization even bigger and expand its relief work to every country in the world.

Role:  Volunteer & I have volunteered at several fundraising dinners, helped in writing orphan reports, entered data into the IRUSA database and worked on several projects in the IRUSA office. .
