Review for Miracles In Action Inc, Naples, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I joined Miracles in Action on a trip to Guatemala in January 2007 and was so impressed with their networking, dedication, knowledge and ability to get real sustainable projects done. Also impressive is that 100% of donations go toward projects -- the minimal overhead is paid by selling Guatemalan handicrafts -- which not only pays for the small overhead, but also gives jobs to the women who make the crafts.

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

the number of schools, vocation centers, and water projects built in their short history.

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

keep up the good work.

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

the networking.

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

impressively dedicated (volunteers - no paid staff.)

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

make an even bigger difference in the lives of the poor!

Ways to make it better...

I had more resources to help more.

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

the economic downturn around the world.

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

the name is fitting -- it seems like miracles happen all the time in getting so many projects done!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Board Member & Opened a school, raised funds, sold handicrafts, joined the board.
