Review of COUNTRY DANCE & SONG SOCIETY INC by AimeeE

Great Nonprofits Reviews - Wed, 2014-04-16 17:55
5 stars. I have benefitted from the existence of CDSS since a very early age. Having grown up in the contra dance community, I was surrounded by excellent role models for multi-generational community and what it means to connect with many people.

CDSS provides so many means of support for these and other tradition American folk arts that would otherwise have to rely on only local knowledge, res...

5 stars. I am a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer. Most of the developing world is challenged by human rights, and animals come last. However, I also know that many people have compassion for all. they need assistance, and they need to know they are not alone---that the global community supports them. This is what Animal-kind International does.

Review of Operation Paws for Homes by Jen.Dodge

Great Nonprofits Reviews - Wed, 2014-04-16 17:23
5 stars. I have been involved in Operation Paws for Homes since the beginning of the organization's creation. In four short years, we have grown from a small rescue organization to one of the largest in the Mid-Atlantic region. In that time, we have saved thousands of dogs from a horrible fate. I will never forget my first experience in entering a shelter in the rural south. The shelter was loc...

Pro-Russia separatists take armor, humiliating Ukraine forces

Yahoo! News - Wed, 2014-04-16 16:54

An armed man stands guard in SlavianskBy Stephanie Nebehay and Christian Lowe GENEVA/MOSCOW (Reuters) - Foreign ministers from East and West will try to defuse the Ukraine crisis on Thursday in Geneva, once frequently the scene of Cold War negotiations, but will risk being upstaged by Russian President Vladimir Putin. With Russian troops massed on the border with Ukraine, prospects of significant progress at the four-way talks appear slim. By contrast, what Putin says during his annual "hotline" session with the Russian people may have far greater influence on events in Ukraine's rebellious east. Thursday's talks will bring the ministers of Russia, Ukraine and the United States together with the European Union's foreign policy chief to discuss a crisis in which Kiev is struggling to reassert its authority in eastern towns largely controlled by armed pro-Russian separatists.

5 stars. This organization has everything going on. Onsite information, trips to learn conservation and animal natural behavior. It's always a friendly relaxed time, and I'll have memories for life. And I get to come home and share with people who don't get out much!

5 stars. CDSS, through its many local affiliates, enriches the lives of thousands of ordinary people, helping them participate in the arts- specifically Music and Dance. There are no "try outs", and the cost is usually cheaper than a movie. As a result they create places where all ages, all walks of life fill these dance spaces.

At at time when lives are jam packed with stress and responsibiliti...

5 stars. This organization goes above and beyond any equine charity that I have encountered. Not only do they rescue equids, but they make efforts to educate horse owners and the public about care and abuse. They continue to fight for this cause even after seeing so much pain and abuse.
