SOS Children's Villages

The SOS Children's Villages is the largest orphan and abandoned children's charity in the world. The organization is a non profitable organization which means that the organization, by law, cannot hold or distribute profits like a "for-profit" organization can. Any profits that the organizatioin would make must be used to pay salaries, other non-preofit organizations, or donated to charities like the SOS organization.
The organization has been in operation since 1969 led by CEO Heather Paul and it's headquartered in Washington, D.C. The oranization offers free E-cards that anyone may use as a way of introducing the work of SOS, or as a way of sending a birthday card, thank you card, etc. The SOS oranization has many "villages" set up all around the world to help children. They help children when they need it the most, for example, they reopened a school in Haiti after it got destroyed by the earthquake.
I support the SOS Children's Villages organization completely because I think it is very good to donate and help children who are in need or who have been abandoned by their parents or gaurdians. Whenever you have extra money or anything, it is always good to try and help the less fortunate. I think this organization is very good for the world because by other people learning what this organization is doing for children, it could encourage others to help out too.
