Working with Bailey Van Tassel and Abel Impact was a no-brainer for me and the best decision I made when it came to figuring out where to donate to charity. I was given a gift of a certain amount to decide where I wanted to donate it to and I had a really hard time deciding. I knew which types of organizations I wanted to give to, but not the exact ones and that is where Bailey stepped in to help. She provided a very detailed and comprehensive report about her top findings in each category I liked which helped make it much easier for me to decide. I don't have the time to do that research so hiring her was so helpful. I highly recommend Abel Impact and would use them again in a heartbeat. Thank you Bailey!
