Social Networks support Haiti Earthquake

We have had tremendous support from our social network community following the Haiti earthquake. Here is a selection of the comments we received on our Facebook Fan Page

(http://www.facebook.com/pages/SOS-Childrens-Villages/75961777491)

-- to show just how generous and kind people are, here are some quotations:  

"I'm guessing that we've all been moved by the scenes from Haiti: it will fall off the media radar in a number of weeks but the needs there will remain acute for a long time after. I've been supporting SOS for years now because they are the "real deal": SOS Children's Villages are committed to helping the people of Haiti... I for the long haul and have been silently working there since 1978. If you want to help you could do a lot worse than sponsoring a child or village in Haiti via SOS..."

 What a great charity to support - whether by sponsoring a child directly, or giving to emergency aid - you can trust that the donation will be wisely spent."

"I have just sponsored a child and it is the best feeling in the world. After seeing the trauma in Haiti over the last week I have been devastated by the disaster. At last the help is getting through to those who need it most but what about the after affects when the country is left to build itself up again? We need to make sure that the children of the future are kept safe, healthy and are given the opportunity to go to school. Thank you all who have contributed a little of your time and money to support a child in need. x x x"

 "just joined, hope my small bit can help and its great to see so many people already doing this. There is a lot of good in this world xxxxx"

"I watched the BBCs coverage of SOS children which told me about this wonderful charity I am happy to sponsor a child when we have so much"

"If, like me, you've just made a one-off donation to the Haiti appeal, fantastic, but I'd really encourage you to become a sponsor. I've sponsored a child in Cape Town for a few years now and have been to visit him at the Children's Village, which was a humbling but uplifting experience - they are doing an incredible Jo...b and makes every penny donated worthwhile. Genuinely, for the cost of a few pints/a manicure/new top (whatever your thing is...), you can make an unimaginable difference to a child's life."

"The adults there are finding it tough, children on their own impossible. Any help you can give will go to supporting these children who need all the help and support possible"

"Thank you BBC for your coverage this morning of SOS Children. These poor little children. Please, please everyone, do what you can."

 "Been meaning to sponsor a child or village for ages and recent events and publicity on TV made me realise it is also a good way of helping after a disaster. It is very quick to set up and you can choose a country yourself or leave it to SOS to decide where it is most needed."
