SOS Children’s Villages has 400,000 children & families in our care, in the USA & in 134 countries. I am involved because the organization is part of the solution to global challenges we face. We help create safe conditions to prevent the need for children & families to flee bad conditions. We help build foundations for kids: good health & education to yield productive members of societies, which we need to impact the future.
Please help care for our kids at SOS Children's Villages, and those kids still displaced or at risk; those separated from families or on the run due to war or disease. Below are the kinds of projects I am trying to fund below, in addition to getting 200 kids sponsored around the world.
ALSO, PLEASE START YOUR OWN FUNDRAISING CHALLENGE and raise awareness & donations from your friends & family. We have a mobile friendly way to create a “rally page” so you can easily get your contacts engaged. Go to team.sos-usa.org. On behalf of the kids, thank you and happy holidays!!!
