A one-man charity band, adam is the quintessential social change agent: one person, one family, one group at a time, adam personally sees to it that their quality of life improves. adam lives and works side by side with those whom he assists, thus ensuring complete delivery of the care and complete integrity of your investment. this makes Cause and Affect the single best charity that i've ever come across.

Adam is the perfect blend of ideas and action. He makes all of his outreaches extremely relevant by customizing approaches based on extensive research and knowledge of the needs of the people. He is diligent in knowing current affairs, and is always ahead of the curve when planning his next project. Above all, I have found I can completely trust him to be financially responsible and to maximize impacts with the donations received.

Cause & Affect brings thoughtful solutions to people and communities that need them, often as straight-forward as providing an oven to orphanages unable to serve hot food. This is real action, helping people in straight-forward ways. I am behind Adam and his mission, and when I give to Cause and Affect I know that my money is going directly to the people that need it most.

Adam has been an inspirational force in parts of the world many of us may never come to know personally, but have been able to touch through Adam's visionary, adventurous, and persistant approach to his work. He has deep integrtiy and a genuine desire to have a positive impact on the world around him, both here and abroad -- not a bad combination.

I have known Adam since we were about 3 years old. We both share a passion for travel and learning about new cultures. But Adam has taken his travel to a whole different level by finding individuals, families and even organizations that are in need of assistance and helping them any way that he can. I have donated to Adam's causes in the past and will continue to do so in the future.

I read about Adam in the Sunday Chicago Tribune in the White Sox World Series season of '05. Being a Sox season ticket holder, I sought him out at the ballpark. 
We compared notes on our charity work, found that we were brothers in our dedication, and have been collaborating & corresponding ever since. 
Adam Carter is truly one of the best men I have ever known.

I am a Brazilian friend of Adam since his first visit here in 2000. I have been able to witness his interest in helping the Brazilian children that are faced with tough situations and poverty. He has traveled to Brazil MANY times and uses his social skills, great Portugese language skills and training to help the people that live in the favelas here. It is obvious that live in the favelas here. It is obvious that people like Adam view people from all countries as being from the same - no matter what their nationality or social class.

Adam Carter is one of the most unique, innovative and driven individuals I know. I am proud to say that I have been a colleague of Adam's for the past 10 years. His work ethic has always been tremendous, but it is his concepts and ideas that truly put him on a different level. His charitable efforts always go to extraordinary levels, and his outside the box thinking is something that can be deriven from. Regardless of what he engages in, I look at Adam as someone who will be successful in any venture he chooses. I think what makes him special is his ability to relate to a diverse group of people. He has friends and contacts from an eclectic array of backgrounds, and his ability to speak multiple languages gives him a true edge in today's changing landscape. Adam would be an incredible addition to any group or project he chooses to pursue.

I have supported Adam in his cause, and will continue to do so in the future.

Adam has been a supporter of one of our projects in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for five years. Even though he hadn't visited the country in a while he kept tabs with the project directly and through Dreams Can Be Foundation. He raised money for the project and when the project ran into trouble he rallied his network and brought in some extra support. he returned to Brazil last year as we organized a new board for the project and he volunteered to be part of the board to help insure the contnuity of the project and insure its ongoing development. Adam's assistannce has been valuable to the project and has meant that our organization could count on his time and his network.
