SOS Children’s Villages provide loving homes for over 90,000 children worldwide each and every day. They rely solely on donations from individuals and corporations for their survival.
SOS is aptly named; they literally transform lives across the world and do so regardless of race, religion, political views or nationality. Their devotion to the children crosses all boundaries and reaches the hearts of those of us fortunate enough to come into contact with them.
I first heard about SOS when on a flight to Austria on Air Transat.
Ardent supporters, Air Transat offered their clients the opportunity to view a short video highlighting the villages and collected small change to give to the children.
I had no idea that Air Transat’s introduction would soon affect my own life so profoundly.
At The Austrian Ball, I had the distinct pleasure to meet Mr. Joseph Adamo, Air Transat’s Vice President of Marketing, who kindly gave a presentation showing his corporation’s support of the Children’s Villages.
To-date, Air Transat has graciously shared almost a million dollars with the Children’s Villages since their relationship began.
Accountants when looking at this number may read this in a dollar sense, but having had the honor of visiting the SOS Jamaican village, I know this bottom line really means saving lives …. many, many lives.
Thank you to The Austrian Society, Air Transat and all the donors and volunteers who make this world a better place!
I have a tremendous respect for the work of SOS Children’s Villages do and look forward to helping in any way I can in the future.
Please note: I am NOT a paid spokesperson for SOS or Air Transat … just truly and duly impressed
