Review for Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch, Medina, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

All of the money donated goes to provide wonderful housing including shade trees, good food, Exercise, veterinary care, and even love to dogs that would have been euthanized in the so-called shelters. Very rare is the opportunity to donate money to a charity that uses it so sparingly and wisely for all the right purposes. My wife, Ruth Buzzi, uses her celebrity to raise money for this Wonderful rescue ranch.

Review for Foundation For a Smokefree America, Playa del Rey, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

If we could identify a murderer who killed for profit, who also crept into homes where the poorest families lived and stole money, who got paid and became very rich for hurting and killing millions of people, we would surely do something about that murderer, wouldn't we?

The truth is, our government knows all about this murderer and, because of money the murderer gives politicians, our government largely ignores the mayhem caused by this particular murderer.

That murderer is cigarettes.

The Foundation for a Smokefree America takes a stand for my right to enjoy freedom from other people's cigarette smoke in places where I wish to enjoy the simple act of breathing, and for that I thank Patrick Reynolds and his group for doing a great job. They have raised awareness, educated children, and even helped get legislation passed to fight the scourge of tobacco addiction and the taking of innocent victims through second-hand smoke.

This is a nonprofit that truly makes a difference.

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

I have enjoyed smoke free restaurants and other businesses in my home town of Ft Worth, Texas since the city banned smoking in such places. The Foundation had an impact in the groundswell of public opinion leading to this legislation.

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

I would be even more adamant about legislation needed to help innocent victims, particularly children exposed to cigarette smoke in automobiles. It should be felony child abuse to smoke in an enclosed area with little kids.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I quit smoking more than 30 years ago, and have been a supporter of this foundation since its inception.
