Review for Kinship Circle, Saint Louis, MO, USA
Kinship Circle is dedicated, well-organized and gets the job done, one battle at a time. If you are seeking a really good competent charity to support, I highly recommend Kinship - as one of their volunteer animal disaster responders, I would not commit my own time and resources if they didn't meet my high expectations for integrity and professionalism.
I often get the comment "how can you donate your time and money to helping animals when there are so many humans, including children, who desperately need help"? Yes, but thank goodness there are "different strokes for different folks". Animals are innocent victims too but because they are animals, they will never have the opportunity to grow up and make their own choices as humans do, to fight for any rights - they are entirely at the mercy of humans for their entire lives. Humankind has the responsibility of being the earth's caretakers. Kinship Circle is their voice and salvation.
Kinship Circle gets the job done. They are committed and passionate about making the world a better place for animals. I am proud to be a volunteer for this organization.
For some interesting pictures of our Chile deployments, go to Kinship's Flickr photo site!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Chile, where I deployed for Kinship Circle twice after the 2010 8.8 quake and subsequent tsunami, as well as volunteering for some oil spill related work with Kinship partnered with WA2. I met and worked with wonderful, compassionate people who indeed make the world a better place for animals, and subsequently for people, too.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
find a way to provide them with the money they require to be even more successful in their good works. If I won the lottery, I would donate much of it to their endeavors.
