Review for Rememberavet Net, Winters, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Talk to this guy for just a minute, and you too will be passionate about his mission to honor veterans, military and those who have fallen. Their books are open to their supporters, and 100% of proceeds go toward doing EXACTLY what they say it will. I dare you to call another non-profit veterans' charity who would show you their books, much less could prove that ALL of their proceeds go toward the actual cause. GREAT JOB GUYS!!!

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

Newpapers, newsletters, and by calling the veterans home to verify that RememberAvet is doing what they say they did.

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

Put some money into the website. Show the wish lists in a different format- having it only in Excel limits viewing ability for many computer users.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

My interaction at the booth with Randy, hearing him tell the stories about the guys in the veteran home, reading about the veterans of the month, and knowing that 100% goes toward the ACTUAL CAUSE of the charity.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Friendly, happy, and passionate about their cause. His kids were helping out at the booth, and could speak intelligently about why it's important to honor our veterans.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Impact the lives of LOTS and LOTS of veterans by providing resources that the veterans home needs to improve the quality of the residents of the home.

Ways to make it better...

I knew exactly how much they needed for each item on the wish lists, so I could pick out WHICH item I want to buy.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

1. getting the funds they need- I heard that the flagpole project their supporting is estimated at $7000, 2. Getting their website more user friendly, and 3. Getting people who will volunteer their time to help the effort.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I talked to this guy myself at a festival in June. He provided several references, and I contacted two. Both complimented his effort, his results, his abilities, and how his kids contribute. I am not easily impressed, but am by REMEMBERaVET.net

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Donor & I attended a festival where they had set up a booth, and afterwards confirmed with the veterans home that they had received support from Rememberavet.net.
