Walk On Foundation Inc. HONORED AS 2012 TOP-RATED NONPROFIT
(Milton, PA) December 4th, 2012 – Walk On Foundation announced today that it has been honored with a prestigious 2012 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.
“We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2012 Nonprofit and one of the Top 10 Health Related Non Profits in Pennsylvania,” says Joshua Richard, Founder of Walk On Foundation Inc. We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including providing over $16,000 in assistance.
Here are two quick testimonials provided by persons who have received assistance from Walk On Foundation in the past year.
As a survivor of peritoneal cancer and stem cell transplant recipient, I have to travel to Houston, TX frequently for check ups with my doctors at MD Anderson Cancer Center. Joshua Richard mentioned Walk on Foundation to my husband one evening in a sports chat conversation. We had just discovered that day that the assistance with airfare that we had been expecting had fallen through and God opened another door of opportunity in the most unsuspected place. Joshua and Walk on Foundation granted our wish for assistance for roundtrip airfare for my husband and I so that I could continue under the fine care of my doctors at MD Anderson. Thank you Joshua and Walk on Foundation!
I believe in Angels, both in the Heavens and on Earth! There are special people/groups, who have touched your life in a way that I consider them our "Earthly Angels"...you, your organization...have touched our lives in that way!!! Life is truly, alot easier with this special gift that arrived at our door this week...the box said Buggy on the outside, with a pic of the chair on the box.. you should of seen the excitement in one little girl named Jilly, when she saw the box! She kept saying: "Me Me"...and we said "yes Jilly, this is for you and someone on our computer sent it to you". Her smile was priceless. My son opened the box, and we pulled out this wonderful umbrella style wheelchair called a Buggy. It was lightweight and great looking, and so easy to set up!! Jilly climbed in, we adjusted the harness and that is where she stayed for the next hour.
The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that Walk On Foundation Inc. received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit. For example, one person wrote, “I can not say enough about Walk On, the people I spoke with were professional and caring. From the moment I told them we needed a wheelchair for my son, they were on it. In just a few short weeks we had the wheelchair we so desperately needed. Now we can get out on walks as a family, go to the store, football games, anything we want, all because of Walk On.Thank you so much for being here for our family!.”
Being on the Top-Rated List comes at an important time of the year, as donors look for causes to support during the holiday season.
"We are gratified by Walk On Foundation for its work,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, "They deserve to be discovered by more donors and volunteers who are looking for a great nonprofit to support."
Being on the Top-Rated list gives donors and volunteers more confidence that this is a credible organization. The reviews by volunteers, clients and other donors show the on-the-ground results of this nonprofit. This award is a form of recognition by the community.
