Review for SOROPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL OF HUNTINGTON BEACH, Huntington Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a member of their sister club, I have watched these remarkable women make a lasting difference in the lives of women and girls. Their care and concern goes way beyond merely giving them a financial boost - it is also mentoring in every way possible. The women they help maintain contact with them for years, attesting to the bond that was formed.

Review for WHW, Irvine, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a personal stylist who readies our clients for job interviews. It is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. Many of our clients have touched my heart but none so much as a gentle giant of a man recently released from prison. Due to his size, he was sure that we would not have anything to fit him. We were, however, able to completely outfit him with a suit, shirt, ties and shoes. He stared at himself in the mirror with awe. He had never seen himself looking like this. He asked if he could wear his new clothing back to the shelter. I was delighted that he wanted to do so. He took my hand and said that he felt that he had been reborn. At that point we both started to cry.
