Review for The Telling Project, Austin, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had the honor, through The Telling Project, as a civilian and a writer, to have had the opportunity to work with veterans. It has been a life-changing experience. The stories told to me, the sincerity of their will to serve, the dignity with which veterans carry their experiences with them, has been an example to me. In turn, to have seen veterans and veteran organizations affiliated with the Project flourish in their personal and professional capacity has been one of the great experiences of my life. This project, I truly believe, makes a difference to everyone it touches. I am very thankful to be a part of it.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the emotional sincerity with which veterans tell their stories and in observing, taking part in, the embrace of civilian audiences.

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

fund it. The project currently works on a volunteer basis, which does not allow the continuity of personnel required to build a viable infrastructure.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

learning to listen, meeting people of great quality and with incredible service ethic.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

driven, capable, gifted, kind, sensitive, generous, strong, dignified, pragmatic, talented, brave.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

put on Telling Productions in every state of the United States, even, possibly, extending its ambit to veterans and people with stories to tell in other countries.

Ways to make it better...

the Project had proper funding.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding so that it can create a viable infrastructure with which to fulfill its mandate.
