Review for In A Perfect World Foundation, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In a Perfect World, it has been my joy to work with this nonprofit since its inception. Since 2004 I have been its Treasurer and I promise you that every penny that you give to our programs goes back out to helping youth who are at risk no matter where. This year has been an emotional one as we look back at the events that changed the lives of so many. We have had Care packages, backpacks, EarthFest, MLK Day just a few of the activities that we completed this year. We built partnerships with Horton's Kids, P.A.I.N.T.S. Institute, Richmond Family & Fatherhood Iniative, just to name a few. J McDaniel, Treasurer

Review for In A Perfect World Foundation, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Over ten years ago, Manuela Testolini shared with me her idea for a nonprofit organization, the vision was if a child could have’ a perfect world’ what would they ask for? For some it was a world without smoking or a family where all were at peace, for others it was a simple as a blue crayon. The mission statement grew to be ‘dedicated to empowering the next generation by creating and supporting programs that provide education, mentoring and artistic expression to underserved, and at-risk youth around the world’, at that time, she asked if I would be Treasurer.
I accepted the position.
I still am Treasurer of IAPW, and I am proud of our growth, the thousands of children we have helped around the world has been just extraordinary.
Early on one of our first projects was producing a documentary called ‘Listen to The Children’. Personally, I was so touched by what the children had to say I thought if we could only help a few, it would be great.
However, Manuela’s vision was much greater, as we went on to fund wells for fresh water.
Next, we set our sight on a bigger project, through our partnership with buildOn, we have to date built fifteen schools and funded four more yet not built schools.
We have helped children from the biggest cities to small rural communities across America.
It has been a remarkable ten years, and I do look forward to see what will happen in the next ten years.
