Review for Teardrops to Rainbows, Centreville, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Since I first learned of the work of this organization, I have been amazed by its level of contribution given its size. Virtually every penny contributed goes directly to the mission. They vitality and energy of its founder, Lois Lyons, radiates throughout every activity. In speaking with their clients it immediately comes through what a lasting difference T2R made in their lives.

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

hearing about its tremendous impacts on the lives of its clients.

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

Get the message out to a broader audience to attract more donations and reach a broader group of hospitals and care facilities.

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

watching its impact grow over the years.

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

energetic, dedicated, and driven.

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

change the lives of hundreds of thousands of children suffering from cancer.

Ways to make it better...

I heard on a more regular basis about its work, e.g., via Facebook.

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

reaching a broader audience of donors.

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

Lois Lyons's dedication inspires awe. She runs this entire organization as her "night job" while retaining a very challenging full time job. She does so to keep the operating expenses to a minimum and ensure as much money as possible gets to kids.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
