Review for Coachart Org, Santa Monica, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was introduced to CoachArt by a friend, Jennifer Lafferty, while she was curating an art show for some of the coaches & students. I decided to help out a bit, and during that process I was introduced to all that CoachArt was about My friend is clearly very passionate about the organization (she now works for them) but I had yet to formulate an opinion, I was simply helping a friend out at that point. However, after learning more about CoachArt and what they do, and also meeting different coaches and, of course, the kids that are being helped out through CoachArt (via the art show) I was hooked. What they do is so important to these children and their families. CoachArt not only brings smiles and happiness into their lives when there isn't much to smile about, but they are also giving them confidence to go out and do what they want. Since I am a business owner, my own time is limited and I haven't gotten a chance to volunteer, but my company has donated items for raffles and help out whenever we can. This is a wonderful and growing organization that touches so many, I am grateful to be a part of it, even if it isn't a large a part as I would like.

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

I attended the curated art show (showing both coach and student art). The students were so excited about showing their art. This kind of attention is very important in giving these children self worth and confidence. Nothing but happy faces that night!

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

amazing and caring staff, the grassroots efforts and the end result with the children.

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

create community centers to include more people and projects. also create centers in childrens hospitals to meet the needs of hospital bound children with permanent staff....

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
