Review for The Time Is Now to Help, Lake Geneva, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

Whether a disabled person, single mother, homeless child or sick father, The Time is Now to Help listens to hundreds of heart-breaking stories every year. I know the founders personally and have witnessed as they gave of their own funds, and of their own selves, to help those people who are less fortunate than so many of us. While they occasionally receive a larger gift from a foundation or individual, much of what they are able to share with the people they serve comes from small donations from people like me who are so very grateful to know that someone is doing the hard work of witnessing the suffering of our fellow humans in order that they can learn what help is needed, and how best to make a difference. This organization could not exist without the founders, Sal and Corinne, and their wonderful children. What the Time is Now to Help gives and does comes directly from the heart. I know I speak for so many others when I say that I am grateful that they help on our behalf, and I wish I had a million dollars or more to help them provide their loving and necessary service.

Review for The Time Is Now to Help, Lake Geneva, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The best non profit organizations not only serve their clients, but inspire those who see their work to make a difference as well. The Time is Now to Help provides tangible services to hundreds, perhaps thousands of people who find themselves in a place where they can no longer 'go it alone.' This organization gives the hand up when it is needed most, and often when all else has failed. They are seen as 'angels,' and indeed they show God's love through their compassionate and unselfish acts. It is not just about providing funds, but about providing friendship. Reading about the positive changes they bring about in others' lives inspires all of us who know this organization to try to do more when we encounter someone in need of help. Even the gift of a smile can make a difference to someone in the dark. Thank you the Time is Now to Help for making our world a kinder place.

Review for GlobalGiving, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Global Giving provides an unsurpassed opportunity for a local or regional nonprofit to achieve visibility world wide for its mission, and to attract new donors who would not otherwise have become aware of the organization's needs and work. The process of setting up a project is accomplished with ease and Global Giving staff are easily accessible for support and respond promptly to questions or requests for advice. The templates provided for creating projects are easy to follow and the end result is attractive. Templates provided for project reports and thank you letters provide a format and lend themselves to customization. Project reports are prompted before they become due and the act of writing a report is useful in that the information can usually be used in other ways for education or marketing on a local or regional level. I am very happy with the quality of the site, the people associated with Global Giving and the service it provides and am proud to associate our organization with theirs.

Review for The Time Is Now to Help, Lake Geneva, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

There is a saying--none of us can help everyone, but all of us can help someone. The Time is Now has never lost sight of the individual, even while the ability of the organization grows to help more and more people struggling with poverty, homelessness and despair. The founders continue to be as involved today as they likely were with the very first person whose need captured their hearts. To be able to sustain the kind of compassion, grueling schedule and personal attention that is required to perform their loving work is a miracle in itself. On top of that, the founders and their organization work miracles in countless lives every year, and inspire the rest of us to help where we can.

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