Review for The Arnold Gold Foundation, Englewood Cliffs, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I would like to share my experience with this impactful organization to introduce others to the power of adding a human touch to today's medical world. As a donor, I seek out charities where you can see the value in your donation. This organization has a goal to promote humanism in medicine from as early on as the initiation into medicine throughout a person's career. I have found as a donor that they offer a unique experience with their GOLD DOC program. This organization affords you the opportunity to recognize a special doctor that has made a true impact within your life by recognizing them for a prestigious GOLD DOC award. I recently nominated my doctor for an award after the personal care and attention i received throughout my pregnancy that made such a difference to both my husband and I. The process was simple, I went through their website and filled out some pertinent information and then wrote a brief paragraph or two on why I thought my doctor should be nominated. In a quick turnaround of a few weeks I found out my doctor had received the letter I wrote about her as well as a certificate for her office and a pin to wear on her white coat around the office. It was the meaning behind this award that made such an impact to both her and myself. I am proud to say I am an on-going supporter of this wonderful foundation.

As a follow-up I have also accessed their website to see if other doctors I may potentially visit are listed on there before making an appointment. I want doctors that are not only knowledgeable but actually show care and compassion about myself and my concerns. Thank you to the foundation for sharing your list!

Review for God's Love We Deliver, Inc., New York City, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I recently volunteered for the first time in the kitchen at GLWD and boy what an operation! I was amazed to see how organized and clean the facility was. However, what really amazed me was that not only were the volunteers all enjoying themselves and smiling as we worked the day away, but so were the actual kitchen staff who had this as their permanent job! People love what they do here and it really shows! I was so proud to contribute that day and met such an amazing team of people. My next volunteer assignment will be delivery!

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

help them spread the word more on the variety of people that they serve from all different needs. I love that this organization will immediately deliver a meal upon signing up and not waiting weeks until paperwork is completed! A true testament to their mission statement!

Would you volunteer for this group again?
