Silverdale, WA – February 21, 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.”
Though Donoho has been faithful in supporting COTN’s ministry in Sierra Leone, he has always had a heart for serving the children of Liberia. The American businessman spent part of his childhood in Liberia, where his father, a civil engineer, built the Port of Buchanan and the railway to the Nimba mountains. In March, Donoho and Clark will travel to Liberia a second time, to discern a way forward for COTN’s ministry there.
Donoho brings years of experience as the president and CEO of Bird-B-Gone, the world’s largest manufacturer and distributor of commercial grade bird control products. His unique passions and experience with COTN will make him a valuable member of the leadership team.
Children of the Nations is a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising children who transform nations. The organization currently serves in Sierra Leone, Malawi, Uganda, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Liberia, providing holistic care to orphaned and destitute children.
