Review for Children's Lifesaving Foundation, Santa Monica, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with this organization for about 18 years. I especially like knowing that donations are spent on the needy students and families that they work with, and very very little on overhead. I also like that those that volunteer are there for the sincerest reasons. The woman who runs the organization, Maria D'Angelo is a true Angel on Earth. Her desire to help the families is so genuine and contagious that there isn't a person who knows her who doesn't love and admire her. She inspires the volunteers to get involved on a very personal level which is rewarding to not only the families being helped, but the volunteers as well. Maria's daughter Franscesca and son Sean help her run the Foundation and are tireless in their dedication to the families they help. A remarkeable organization because of the family and volunteers that run it.
