Review for South Dakota State Poetry Society, Sioux Falls, SD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

South Dakota is a wide, wide state, with our relatively small population spread out across the miles. The South Dakota Poetry Society works to bring people together through the celebration of poetry, and in the celebration of the human spirit and all we share as people. This group works to make sure that South Dakota voices will be heard and remembered, and that the South Dakota experience may be added to the human record. Every voice is important, and everyone's voice is welcome here. We publish poetry from South Dakotans, in chap books and Pasque Petals, we sponsor poetry readings and gatherings, and we advocate for poetry across the state.

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

Expand out membership which is a current initiative and make sure that both sides of the state are well represented.

Review for Hopa Mountain Foundation, Bozeman, MT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked for non-profits and served on non-profit boards for almost forty years. Without hesitation I can tell you that I have never experienced a nonprofit with a compassionate heart and soul such as Hopa Mountain. This is a tough time to work in the nonprofit world, in this country, when many fingers - some very few rightfully so - point to the waste or enabling some nonprofits are responsible for. This is not the case with Hopa Mountain. Hopa Mountain gives 100% to give nonprofits in service to the neediest populations the tools and resources they need to help their people. The compassion they have for their communities and their clients is palpable, and their services are delivered with respect and humility. This nonprofit is human-scale, human-based and makes a difference - a REAL difference - at the grass roots. Hopa clients become like a family, and we are all encouraged to succeed and help others succeed. It is an incredible organization, and I am so glad they exist - they make the world a better place.

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

Increase their funding so that they could expand their services. I'd love to see them in South Dakota more often.
