Review for Iris Global, Redding, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Iris Global is a non-profit I trust deeply because of the love that is communicated and made concrete through food, shelter, education and kindness to so many with so little funding. I regard the story of its founders; Heidi came from a privileged background and walked away from it to help others.

If there was an outreach to join, for me, this is it. I feel honored to have an opportunity to sponsor three beautiful children through this project. I hope you will join me.

Review for Central Asia Institute, Bozeman, MT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am an elementary school teacher, giving my life to try to help children have a great foundation for their futures. I heard about Greg Mortenson's dream to thank a Himalayan village for saving his life by honoring them with books for the children - and then by fulfilling the ambitious effort to build them a bridge and a school.

I heard how surprised Greg was that the funding ended up coming from students saving coins in their classrooms and sending it to him. His story moved my heart and my class joined in the mission to fund him. We found it very exciting!

Greg's vision has grown into a mission to impact local people's views toward peace by bringing provision from America to local people through education. He believes the most powerful people to educate are girls simply because they grow into mothers - and mothers stick around and will teach their children. This is a powerful idea.

At the time I began supporting CAI the teachers in their schools worked for $1 a day. I realized I could give $30 a month and empower another teacher's work in educating eager students. What a great investment! I have been personally supporting CAI through monthly donation for a decade and will continue. I hope you will join me.
