Review for Angel Covers, Broomfield, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a donor since the inception of this wonderful non-profit foundation. Several years ago when my daughter, the founder of Angel Covers, asked if I'd also volunteer, I was proud to do so. I know of no other foundation with such an exceptional record of accomplishments while doing so using only volunteers from all over the world. No one involved in Angel Covers receives any financial benefit but does receive a great deal of personal gratification. Angel Covers consists of a passionate group of people making a difference in many ways, in many places, for many children. Truly an outreach from the hearts of individuals to children in need.

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a fan of this non profit since its inception. They never loose their enthusiasm, drive, and desire to seek out ways to help the suffering and disadvantaged children of the world. It's unbelievable all the good that is happening with a totally volunteer foundation. I know of no other non profit that contributes over 95% of all monies directly to its mission and vision.

Angel Covers is truly a nonprofit foundation. All the work accomplished by this organization is done with volunteers all over the world. I volunteer and regularly donate to this organization because 96% of all monies find their way to children in desperate need throughout the world. The director is in close communication with all persons involved in receiving funds and requires reports and pictures of accomplishments. She in turn reports to an outstanding board of directors concerning how money is spent, the progress of projects, ongoing fund raising, and goals for the future. This foundation was born from a belief that all children, regardless of their circumstances in life, deserve to have hope for their futures. Because of the work of Angel Covers children are realizing hope through educational opportunities, better nutrition, medical help, and nurturing adult influences.

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

I have had two outstanding experiences traveling with Kari Fillmore, foundation director. In 2003 I traveled with her to China where we interacted in two separate orphanages providing them with much needed clothing, food, educational toys, etc. In Sept. 2010, I traveled again with Kari to Humble Hearts School for the Deaf located in a slum outside of Nairobi, Kenya. While there I was privileged to help with painting walls and working with students and teachers as I taught new math strategies.

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

Angel Covers does not need to change as much as it needs to expand. With so much need for children in the world, this organization needs many more volunteers so that it can expand and bring further hope to children in destitute areas of the world. One of the greatest needs is for a volunteer grant writer.

Would you volunteer for this group again?


For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?


Did the organization use your time wisely?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?


What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

I spend several hours a week helping with the financial accountability of Angel Covers. If more people would learn of this foundation and it's wonderful work, my vounteer experience as financial secretary would improve by giving even more volunteer hours to recording, categorizing and accounting for more donations.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Look into the eyes of a child as they gaze at themselves on the screen of your digital camera, receive a hug from a child living in a slum as you hand them a new book, read a letter a sponsored child writes to you; then you understand love and compassion. All these and more have had a life changing effect on me!

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?


When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Volunteer & I am a volunteer financial secretary as well as an active participant in projects. It is also my pleasure to support educational opportunities for one deaf student in the slums of Africa and one high school student in China.
