Review for Be The Star You Are Inc, Moraga, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars

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

seeing how the focus on positive media helps children develop a more positive view of the world and of themslves.

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

increase the funding level to serve more kids.

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

working with the founder, Cynthia Brian.

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

genuine, caring people.

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

Ways to make it better...

we had more funds to help more children.

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

money, money, money.

One thing I'd also say is that...

this is a first rate organization. Cynthia is an energetic and committed person. We need more like it.
