Amigos Near is a nonprofit foundation with a mission to help underprivileged kids around the world.
Our focus thus far has been working with orphan children and kids with cancer. These children yearn for our LOVE and attention. Our goal is simple: to bring a smile to their faces.
Since 2009 our foundation has enjoyed exceptional successes, consistently exceeding our goals. Our hands on approach and passion has permitted us to physically hand deliver donated toys, shoes, clothes, beds, food and other aid directly to the source of need.
Amigos Nears’ has an exceptional network of volunteers who collaborate with local individuals and organizations to develop innovative methods in speeding aid to the communities where it is needed. Cutting through the red tape, we keep our overhead low, and break through any obstacles we may encounter in order to deliver more effective and direct-relief than traditional aid models can provide.
Locally we arrage toy drives. Every toy we receive is wrapped and delivered to the children at the hospital. Internationally we board planes and personally deliver aid to the kids in orphanages. We strive on making sure our goals are achieved. To ensure efficient transparency, aid projects are thoroughly documented by Amigos Near members, who post videos and written updates on the organization’s web site (www.amigosnear.org). We are keen on physical responsibility, accountability to donors, financial supporters, and most importantly to the communities Amigos Near serves in July 2012 we received our 501(c)(3) status.
