Review for Undies for Everyone, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am so proud to be associated with this organization. Amy Weiss has done a fantastic job of identifying a need--children who miss school because they don't have underwear--and finding a way to fill it. With great passion and enthusiasm, she has built an amazing organization from the ground up, one that has literally changed the lives of countless children. Weiss has met with underwear suppliers, school district administrators, community leaders, and hundreds of volunteers, inspiring them to join her in the fight to keep kids in school. Who knew clean underwear could make such a difference? Amy did, and did something bold about it! Kudos to her and Undies for Everyone!

Review for Recipe For Success Foundation, Houston, TX, USA

That's when I became interested in Recipe for Success--they are a much needed organization in Houston, and they do a great job.

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

Seeing the changes it's made in school food, and also been impressed by it's growth in town. The quality of the people involved is just wonderful.

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

Expand it nationally!
