2014 top non profit

Every Wednesday between 4-5pm PT, the Voice America Network broadcasts an upbeat program, Starstyle®-Be the Star You Are!®, brought to the airwaves under the auspices of Be the Star You Are!® charity. For the fifth consecutive year, Be the Star You Are!® 501 c3 charity has been honored with a prestigious 2014 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.

“We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2014 Nonprofit once again!” says Cynthia Brian, Founder and Executive Director of Be the Star You Are!® 501c3 charity. “All the volunteers have worked very hard and we are very proud of our accomplishments this year, including our Operation Disaster Relief program and our two international radio shows, Starstyle® Be the Star You Are!® and Express Yourself!™ that are bringing positive messages to the world.”

The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that Be the Star You Are!® 501 c3 charity received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit. For example, one person wrote, “To say that Be the Star You Are!® has changed my life would be an understatement!”
