My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for APOPO, Antwerpen, , Belgium
Not only does Apopo save lives by training the HeroRATs to detect landmines, they also train the rats to detect TB. The more people who know about them and the work they do, the more lives they'll be able to save. Their social media campaigns are informative and entertaining, which is one of the best ways to teach.
Review for Military Association of Atheists & Freethinkers, Washington, DC, USA
MAAF always steps up to protect and enhance basic human rights not only in the military, but beyond. Without MAAF, soldiers and their families would be bereft of alternative resources. MAAF's tireless social media efforts go far to support all soldiers and equality regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation. One of brothers is a Marine and straight and narrow in his life and views, but I support him even though I don't agree with some of his views (my other brother is gay and my Marine brother is resigned but not 100 percent on board with that), and MAAF helps me to see that my Marine brother does not define my gay brother's or my life, and that we love him (our Marine brother) unconditionally anyway -- because regardless of his being a little pest, he's our baby brother and a truly wonderful person. MAAF has helped with this and has given me the incentive to review with a kinder heart and less of a knee-jerk reaction so many different life views and religions (I'm an atheist). I'll always be grateful to Justin Griffith for leading me in this direction.
Review for Akshaya USA , Aurora, CO, USA
This organization does so much good, does not discriminate, saves lives, and helps people to help themselves.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
their transparency in keeping donors updated on where their money goes.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
not make any changes.
