Review for Lingap Childrens Foundation, Jackson, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The deeper you look into this organization, the more your heart fills with compassion, and the more admiration you feel for John Drake and the good folks at Lingap, who saw a heart breaking need and did something practical and effective about it. We can't save every child, nor meet the needs of all the disadvantaged, but it fills the spirit to help the Lingap Center make a huge, life-changing, life-saving change for these children. John's vision and relentless, tireless quest to fulfill it have been a small miracle, and a tender mercy in my life. It is a privilege to be able to participate in the effort and to know this man. He makes me want to be a better person.I guarantee you that you cannot spend a dollar which will have a greater effect, nor generate more deep and sincere gratitude than by helping these children.

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

The stories, the pictures, the videos of the children whose lives have been transformed.

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

Somehow get a full time fundraiser working for it. I simply have never seen charitable contributions make more of a difference. Lingap puts every last dollar not to good, but GREAT use.

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

the unshakeable core of integrity and relentless pursuit John Drake brings to the task of helping these kids.

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

Pure of heart

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

Create 2-3 more like-kind centers, and save 200-300 more children.

Ways to make it better...

My experience, which is ongoing, could not be better. I will remain a staunch supporter of this organization.

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

gaining mindshare when there are so many compelling needs in the world.

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

A Place at the Table is a small, simple way to make a huge difference in the life of one specific child.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Donor & Contributions for the initial build, and ongoing support of annual expense.
