Review for Karam Foundation NFP, Lake Forest, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I don't know where I found the Karam Foundation a couple of years ago, but it was through purchasing their lovely olive, interesting smelling soap from Syrian plant material, that I loved so much, I bought three more for my sisters across the USA. I feel so terrible that our country is not taking a million Syrian refuges. Shame on us. The next gift I found to support the Karam school children refugees in Turkey and in Syria, was the notecards with ink drawings of great leaders, like Nelson Mandella and others I never heard of. I hope you will try their wonderful soap and imagine a world like the days of "It's a Small Small World" in which our cultural differences were a joy for all. Thank you for your donations to this truly inspiring cause. I am a white woman who knows better.

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

Ask them what they need from us.

Review for Project Vote Smart, Des Moines, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Wake up, people, wake up! Our mass media is not telling us how our representatives voted and on what. 30 years ago, I learned of the bipartisan Votesmart.org and started to support them after learning what they had/have to offer. Call 1888 VOTE-SMART to ask an intern your candidate question: their interns have been spending countless hours researching... You can also quickly find the answers you seek at VoteSmart.org's web site, where not only are 17 representative bills detailed with the Y/N votes indicated for your reps, but also 0-100% focus group ratings. Answer 13 simple questions in "VoteEasy" to watch the candidates that agree with you come forward or recede with representative percentages. Donate $10 and they will send you their biannual Voter's Self-Defense Manual rag listing the whole country's info. Check out their **** rating at the philanthropic accountability web site, CharityNavigator.org and donate, go intern yourself, tell ten people today. Voting is not a Democracy Sport.

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

Get the word out to every single voting American.
