Review for Characters of Character NFP, Inc., McHenry, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Joni Downey and Characters of Character are a bright light and a breath of fresh air. With all the influences of reality TV and other changes in society, Joni and CFC instill solid values and learning that will last children for a life-time. The characters are a delight, and Joni's commitment to impacting the lives of children and working with parents and educators is without peer. Joni and COC should be in every school, in every state throughout the nation. I am fully convinced that lives and families have been touched and changed in a positive way due to the activities and programs of Characters of Character and Joni Downey.

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

Make it certain that it was available to every school and every family.

Review for Music of the Heart Organization - Haiti Youth Ministry, Castle Rock, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Marilynn Boyko wrote; Kim Butorac has such a heart for Music Of The Heart, which is shown when you see pictures of the youth in their band uniforms. As a professional in the non-profit field, I'm fully aware of the power of music to change and transform the life of a child. This has been demonstrated in Venezuela, Harlem, St. Louis and in many, many programs throughout the country. In my eyes, Kim is a local hero who brings a joyful noise to the children of Haiti. With no fanfare, publicity, or huge funding, she has taken a passion and dream and turned it into reality. I heartily support all that she does and can only imagine how much will be accomplished in the future. What she does is exciting, and what is accomplished is phenomenal. To be
associated with the organization is an honor and privilege.
