5 stars. ITSAN is a god-send for me and my family. Their informative resources and supportive volunteers helped us get our lives back. They are organized and well-run and reaching out now to the big dermatology conventions. Though they are only 2 years old, they have accomplished an amazing amount. Thank you ITSAN for all you do and continue to do!

5 stars. From victim to volunteer! People from all over the world are having to turn to this vital organisation for help, because there is so little support for them locally. The Hope of Survivors is the only understanding and hope offered for some victims. We will never know how many people are not victims because of the work they do in educating Churches. I look forward to being a small part ...

Through my involvement planning and organizing their events, working with BOP's board, and working with the community it serves, I learned enough about fiduciary responsibility to serve on a Public School Board.

I am presently the lead of one of a handful of programs within pub...

Great Nonprofits Reviews - Sat, 2014-04-19 10:19
5 stars. This organization is unique in that it supports a multitude of areas: the arts, women's rights, protecting native culture, education, and social justice all in one! By donating or volunteering with this organization you are able to see the fruits of your labor go directly to those in need--the women themselves, rather than going through the politics of a larger nonprofit with a bunch o...

The last time I saw Grandpa Elliot in New Orleans I got his CD Sugar Sweet and later the Stand by Me CD. The first time I listened to the CD and watched the dvd I cried and smiled so big! I felt a deep heart connection to all the musicians in the Stand by Me video and I f...

The operation itself was very stressful for me and, for about a month while in hospital the only thing th...

Armed pro-Russian activists guard a barricade outside the regional state building seized by the separatists, in the eastern Ukrainian city of Slavyansk, on April 18, 2014Donetsk (Ukraine) (AFP) - Russia was under US pressure Saturday to convince pro-Moscow rebels in Ukraine to cease occupying eastern towns, after Washington warned the situation in the former Soviet republic was in a "pivotal period". But with the separatists' refusal to budge throwing a deal to defuse the crisis into doubt, and US sanctions looming large, Russia warned that its military was massed on Ukraine's border, ready to act. In the major eastern city of Donetsk, gunmen remained barricaded inside the regional government building. The failure to implement the agreement hammered out in Geneva on Thursday by the US, Russia, Ukraine and the EU threatened to deepen the worst East-West crisis since the Cold War.
