Review for Blessing Hands Inc, Morehead, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have known about Blessing Hands and their mission for a number of years now. At first, I didn't know that much, and I didn't get involved, but I paid attention to what I heard about them. Finally, I went to a couple of events where Blessing Hands had an information booth. When I really looked over the material, I realized how much difference they were making in the lives of poor, deserving Chinese kids, and I also was amazed at how much they could do with a small donation. I have since made several donations, and I intend to do more in the future. I feel that for a given amount of money, a donation to Blessing Hands can make more difference in the lives of people than any other nonprofit group I am aware of. A really small amount of money can result in a child getting an education... first through middle and high school, and if they do well, through college. And after this, the recipients will most likely help others in their family and their community to also get educated.. so the results just snowball!
Blessing Hands also provides water purficication for schools in poor, rural areas--literally changing the lives and the futures of all in those communities.
If you don't have unlimited wealth, but you want to help others, there is no other organization that I know of more deserving of your support --- a small donation really does make a difference -- and when you donate, you will know exactly what your contribution is going for. If it's for a student, you will receive genuine communication from that student.. your help will change their life, and their gratitude will change yours !

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

do more to publicize the work they do.. somehow personalize the kids who benefit from their mission.. show more Americans that in spite of our "rivalry" with China, these kids are sweet, beautiful, and desperately in need of help --- and most of all, spread the word about how a small donation can make such a monumental difference in the life of a child.. and probably the extended family and community of that child.
