Review for Liberty Mutual Foundation Inc, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Liberty Mutual as a company scares me. I read Liberty Mutual was sued for using dangerous used parts on peoples cars in West Virginia. Their name appears far to often in court dockets. Why are they running a charity when they can't even put their liabilities first and pay the people they are supposed to be paying? Cracking jokes about learning to parallel park or just "tearing the bumper" off someones car is no laughing matter. The woman had a smirk on her face like "who cares". Destroying someones property is no joke. I think this foundation is funded by blood money. Money meant to pay for those hurt and damaged that Liberty Mutual turns around and uses to boost their public image. How is this "charity" even allowed to exist? This is a shameful operation.

Review for Autism Citizen, Inc., Wall, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Thanks for listening and the great advice, your organization has been so helpful. Sometimes it is just good to have a place to vent. We would be totally lost without this organization, hopeless to fight to the school on our own. We have made huge progress getting the accommodations we need. Far exceeds my expectations.

Review for NAMI, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

Too focused on medication as a primary solution. In many individuals, medications can put them at a higher risk than had they not even been on it to begin with (like Cymbalta and an increased risk of suicide; had a friend who killed them-self shortly after starting on it, another one is experiencing the horrible "brain zaps" with no help from Eli Lilly-maker of the drug). In fact, nearly every mental health medication ups the risk of suicide (side effect risk) and thats just the start of the 'warning list' and should be used very carefully. In a day and age like today, medication should not be our first choice and I wish there was more done to help in this regard. Too often there is blame on the individual for not feeling better immediately, rather than focusing on their well being and progress at their own pace with or especially without medication. I wish NAMI would push this more, Big Pharma is not worth it in every situation.

Review for National 4-H Council, Chevy Chase, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

They do such great work with the kids, reasonably fair judging in contests and with farm animals too. Great way to keep kids busy with projects and learning to care for farm animals. It is so nice to see the kids tending to the animals at festivals, and the attention to detail they take to make the animal best in show. Even with some of the rougher animals (like cow's), the kids manage them so well, even when the cow is acting up. Many of the kids are so proud with their trophy and ribbons for a job well done.

Review for DonorsChoose.org, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

Fees seem a bit excessive, especially for a "charity". Customer service can be difficult, and several times was impossible. I guess they are better than nothing, but not by much.

Review for Kids Wish Network, Inc., Holiday, FL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

All the news stories make me very sad about what this organization does with the money it gets. I have donated in the past, but I wouldn't donate again. Thanks investigative journalism.

Very grateful for their services and help. I can't imagine where out family would be today if we hadn't found Autism Citizen.
