Great Nonprofits Reviews - Wed, 2014-04-23 12:55
5 stars. I have only been with Foundation of Hope a few months as an instructor & mentor. I first went into it a bit scared not knowing what to expect. Very quickly that subsided and I now want to spend as much as my free time as possible mentoring & teaching. The personal results I have seen mentoring make me feel I am doing something very rewarding and fulfilling. When a person asks me how so...

Review of Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy by greenwaygardener

Great Nonprofits Reviews - Wed, 2014-04-23 12:46
5 stars. Volunteered on the Greenway today! The dedicated small staff and volunteers are amazing. To be able to volunteer in an inner city park that is a gem in the city of Boston is so rewarding! The park is maintained organically, so it's as healthy as it gets when it comes to an urban park! One of my favorite volunteer experiences in Boston!

Russia says it will respond if Ukraine interests attacked

Yahoo! News - Wed, 2014-04-23 12:43
By Pavel Polityuk and Alastair Macdonald KIEV (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused the United States of being behind the political upheaval in Ukraine and said Moscow would respond if its interests came under attack. Lavrov's comments came a day after U.S. Vice President Joe Biden was in the Ukrainian capital with promises of support for the pro-Western government, and a warning to Russia not to interfere in Ukraine. The crisis in Ukraine, now in its fourth month, has dragged Russia's relations with the West to their lowest since the Cold War. In the east, pro-Russian armed separatists have seized about a dozen public buildings and are defying Kiev's authority.

1 stars. I'm writing on behalf of my brother. Don't get me wrong, the food bank is great for people that need help. But Mary Arbuckle is another thing. She cheated my brother out of $275.00 dollars.

She was suppose to pay him $500.00 .Well she sent him $175.00 and she said she had to have a tune up and what ever el...

5 stars. My husband and I have donated to the Oasis Sanctuary for many years, but when I lost my job four years ago we decided to take a close look at the charities we had been supporting. So before deciding to continue supporting the Oasis, we did two things: we got a copy of their Form 990 and compared their data with the recommendations on Charity Navigator and we decided to visit the Oasis,...

Great Nonprofits Reviews - Wed, 2014-04-23 12:02
5 stars. Of all the Foundations I've come to know, I thoroughly believe the Forever Family Foundation the finest, most beneficial, and the most underestimated. Our worst fear, our greatest sadness, our greatest challenge in life is death. This is a foundation that helps us all counsel or be counseled away from the poison of deep grief, and has brought inestimable relief to so many. They work ti...

5 stars. After my son died I started looking for someone who could validate my belief that he was still close to us spiritually. I found Forever Family Foundation through a casual friend. Not only had I found someone to validate my belief, I found a whole organization. I cannot begin to say how much they helped me to work through my grief.

Great Nonprofits Reviews - Wed, 2014-04-23 11:42
5 stars. The Foundation of Hope is an ingenious program that goes above and beyond the call of duty. Whether it be through their services during sentencing or for aftercare services, they give nothing but compassion and hope to the people going through the program. They make people feel like individuals who can make it through their circumstance instead of a person who is helpless because of ci...
