Review for LAMP Inc, Los Angeles, CA, USA
i first learned of LAMP when i viewed the video Lost Angels Skid Row is my Home. i was immediately drawn to the story of the homeless in L A. i learned of the many struggles they have to deal often on a daily basis. After seeing the success LAMP has experienced i sent a small donation to LAMP. Shortly afterwards i was impressed with the response i received from LAMP's Director of Individual
Giving . Her name is Zhenya. She called me. i then decided i should visit their facilities in Los Angeles. i flew down for a two day visit. During my visit there i learned about several of their staff members. i also spent time with a few individuals they have taken off the streets. I subsequently donated more money. During my first visit i learned of the departments staffed to help the homeless help regain their sense of self dignity. i was deeply moved by their food and art department staffs. I later decided to donate things which I thought might be helpful to their photography and art department. i made my second visit when i drove down photography and art items that should help them in their efforts. i can't say enough about their work. Please consider how much your assistance even if minor might mean to those struggling to make a life for themselves. Remember much like a stone skipped on a still pond one may never know how the 'ripples' of thoughtful acts may influence those touched by them.
