KIDS WITH FOOD ALLERGIES HONORED AS 2014 TOP-RATED NONPROFIT Award is Based on Online Reviews
(WASHINGTON, DC - November 7, 2014) -- Kids With Food Allergies (KFA), a
division of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), announced
today that it has been honored with a prestigious award by GreatNonprofits,
the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.
"We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2014 Nonprofit," says Lynda
Mitchell, a Vice President at AAFA and Founder of KFA. "We are proud of our
accomplishments this year focused on keeping children with food allergies
safe and healthy."
The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award was based on the large number of positive
reviews that KFA received - reviews written by volunteers, donors and
partners. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit, such
as, "The support and resources at KFA make it possible to be a successful
parent of a kid with food allergies. Sharing the burden with other families
makes it easier to deal with the day-to-day realities. I'm so grateful for
KFA in my life."
While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, KFA was part of
the inaugural group to qualify for the year. In addition, KFA will be added
to GreatNonprofits #GivingTuesday Guide - an interactive guide to top
nonprofits. Look for the guide near the holiday season.
"Savvy donors want to see the impact of their donations more than ever,"
said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, "People with direct experience with
KFA have voted that the organization is making a real difference."
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.
