GreatNonprofits Announces Top Children and Families Nonprofits for 2012


More than 100 Organizations Honored Nationwide

Redwood Shores, Calif., July 1, 2012 – announced today that over 100 charities from more than 40 states will be receiving a Top-Rated status on the public review website based on positive user reviews.

The charities, nominated by the public, ranged from Neighbor Ride, a nonprofit helping the elderly get around by offering ridesharing, to Little Helping Hands, a resource for volunteer opportunities for young kids.  CHERUBS, another organization honored with the distinction helps expecting parents of babies who have been diagnosed in the womb with congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Other charities help out pregnant moms, like The Fistula Foundation, dedicated to eradicating the pregnancy injury worldwide.

The winning results show the many aspects of child care and family life that nonprofits are involved in. The nonprofits showcased are generally smaller and less well-known – charities that may not have access to an advertising budget. “We encourage volunteers, clients served and donors to share their experience with a charity on our site to give that charity the recognition it deserves,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits.
