Business Owner Bruce Donoho Joins Children of the Nations USA Board of Directors

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

Press Release Shared From: Humanitarian News

Bird-B-Gone owner Bruce Donoho in Liberia

POSTED ON Feb 21, 2012

Silverdale, WA – February 17, 2012 – Bruce Donoho, the owner and CEO of California-based Bird-B-Gone, will be joining Children of the Nations–USA’s board of directors.  The Orange County resident has been a committed advocate and supporter of Children of the Nations (COTN) since he heard COTN founder Chris Clark speak at his church, Presbyterian Church of the Master, in 2008.  In 2010, he took a trip to Sierra Leone and Liberia with Clark to see the ministry firsthand, and explore the possibility of expansion into Liberia. His initial trip inspired much deeper involvement—Donoho and Bird-B-Gone have since gone on to fund several major construction projects to benefit COTN’s children in Sierra Leone.  “This started out as, if we can just help or save one child that doesn’t have a lot of hope, it’s worth it,” Donoho says.  “It’s turned out to be even bigger than that.” (more…)

Bird-B-Gone’s Donoho Builds Children’s Refuge in Sierra Leone

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

From Pest Control Technology Magazine:

MISSION VIEJO, CALIF. — When Bruce Donoho, owner of Bird-B-Gone, traveled to Sierra Leone in 2010 to meet Alfred, an orphan he and his wife Julie had sponsored, he had no idea of the lasting impact it would have.

What has unfolded for Donoho and Bird-B-Gone since then has affected numerous lives both at home and in the West African nations he visited.

Donoho recently returned from his second trip to Liberia and Sierra Leone, where he completed one major philanthropic project, building a children’s dormitory, and set plans in motion for others. The impoverished nations continue to suffer from the devastating effects of extended rebel wars that destroyed much of their infrastructures and left many children orphaned. With unemployment rates topping 80 percent, most families live in poverty and malnutrition is common.

The Donohos first heard about Alfred through Children of the Nations International (COTN), a charitable organization pledging medical aid, safety, nutrition and education to the children of these and other nations in need. After sponsoring the child for three years, the Donohos wanted to meet Alfred and check out the credentials of the organization they’d backed. (more…)

Bird-B-Gone donation helps to create new buildings at a children’s village in Africa

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

Bird-B-Gone, Inc has  teamed up with Children of the Nations (A non-profit organization that provides holistic care to orphaned and destitute children across the globe) to help fund the building of new orphanages in Liberia and Sierra Leon. Visit our blog “Bird-B-Gone Gives Back” for details and updates.

Earlier this year Bird-B-Gone donated two portable brick making machines to help get new dorms and guest rooms built at a children village in Africa.

From the Bird-B-Gone Gives Back Blog:

The roof is ready to go up on the Guest House and dormitories being built in Sierra Leone just in time for the rainy season. Bird B Gone has donated two portable brick making machines that have made the bricks to build the dorms. The bricks are made on-site using local materials.  This saves on costs of transporting building materials into the areas where the childrens villages are.

The dormitory is a part of the Childrens Village in Sierra Leone run by Children of the Nations. It will be used to house orphaned children in Sierra Leone, as well as visitors to the orphanage.

Bird B Gone would like to thank all of our customers.  Without your help we would not have been able to raise this building. A big thank you also to our friends who have given support to the children of Sierra Leone.

Saturday May 7th Children of the Nations held a food packing event in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA where  Bird-B-Gone employees and family members came out to volunteer and show support.

 

Bird-B-Gone controller Ed Perry and Son Gianluca – the youngest volunteer!

The event was designed to invite community members out to volunteer in assembly line packaging of dried foods to send to children in Haiti. By the end of the day, 82,000 meals were packaged. The event made local news “Volunteers assemble food bags for hungry children”(OC Register) and was quite a success!
At Bird-B-Gone, our motto is “It’s more than just bird control, it’s faith family friends” and we don’t just say it – we live it!
Bird-B-Gone Owner Julie Donoho had a great time connecting with the community and giving time for a good cause:
“It was a pleasure to join in the Children of the Nations Meal Packaging event and see all the other volunteers. This event is done nationwide and gives people of all ages a chance to “give back” by packaging thousands of meals for the hungry in Africa, Dominican Republic, and Haiti.  I was proud to see our Bird-B-Gone family come out on a Saturday and join in the cause.  These events are organized, fun, and a chance for groups like churches, schools, and other organizations to come together for a great cause.  And, I even think Bird-B-Gone might have had the youngest participant, 18 month old Gianluca Perry!”

PCT Magazine Interviews Bird-B-Gone Owner, Bruce Donoho, About Recent Trip to Africa

Headline news  From PCT – Pest Control Technology:

Q&A: Bruce Donoho Discusses Efforts to Build Orphanages in West Africa

8/4/2010

Donoho, owner of Bird-B-Gone, recently returned from a trip to West Africa in which he and representatives of Children o the Nation laid the groundwork for construction of an orphanage in Liberia. PCT interviewed Donoho about this experience.

Editor’s note: Bruce Donoho, owner of Bird-B-Gone, recently returned from a trip to West Africa in which he and representatives of Children o the Nation laid the groundwork for construction of an orphanage in Liberia. PCT interviewed Donoho about this experience.

PCT: Did your recent trip to Liberia meet your expectations?
Bruce Donoho: I approached my journey to Banta Mokelleh/ Sierra Leone as a chance to gain “hands on” and “in person” knowledge of the organization Children of the Nations (C.O.T.N.). My wife has been sponsoring a child at the C.O.T.N. children’s village for three years. His name is Alfred, and his picture hangs in our home. I wanted to meet Alfred and validate the integrity of C.O.T.N. Additionally, Chris Clark, founder of C.O.T.N., and I traveled to the neighboring country of Liberia to evaluate the need of opening up an orphanage/C.O.T.N. facility there. Children of the Nations is for real! They are saving the lives of thousands of children by offering medical aid, nutrition, safety and education.These children are being transformed into future leaders and productive members of the future Sierra Leone. I have never seen an organization more steeped in integrity than C.O.T.N. I met our sponsored child, Alfred. His father was killed in the war, and his mother left him in November. He is being raised in a village 5 miles from the C.O.T.N. facility. He walks 10 miles per day through the jungle to school. One day I joined him on his journey home to visit his village and his family. It was quite a hike — fulfilling and affirming in many ways. We traveled to the neighboring country of Liberia where the effects of a long and savage civil war are still evident. Much of the infrastructure of the country was destroyed, and as in Sierra Leone, the unemployment rate is over 80%. There is a great need in Liberia for what C.O.T.N. has to offer.
