Staying Connected Even at a Distance
We’re so thankful for all our friends and supporters who are staying connected to SOS Illinois during these unprecedented times. We are counting on your friendship now more than ever, and are making it easy for you and your loved ones to show you support to our children and families right from your home.
Three Simple Ways to
Support our Children and Families
Supporting the immediate needs of the children and families served by SOS Illinois is of great importance. With a variety of ways to show your support, we are confident that there is a way that fits your needs and the needs of those in your network.
1. Make a Gift Online to Support our Crucial Needs
Under normal conditions, caring for six children in foster care at one time takes a bounty of resources and supplies, including food and formula, diapers and wipes, medications, cleaning and home goods, and more. During this crucial time, those needs are even greater. With an online gift today, you can help us ensure that our Foster Parents have the resources supplies they need to keep their Village homes safe and healthy. Making your gift online today means we can put your donation to immediate use.
$100 can provide grocery delivery for two days
$250 covers one week of food and supplies
$500 covers two weeks of food and supplies

2. Engage Your Social Network
You, plus your friends on social media, can be a collective force. Just like our Villages, the power of community (online and in-person) makes all of the difference when navigating a crisis. When you get together with friends (via social media platforms), small amounts collectively can make a big impact. Whether getting three friends to get give $10, or a group of your peers to participate in your Facebook Birthday campaign in honor of SOS Illinois, there are many ways to leverage your social media networks to help provide necessary support to SOS Illinois during this vital time. Don’t forget to follow us on our social media channels (listed in the section below) so we can watch your social connections in action!
3. Become a SOS Illinois Influencer
The SOS Illinois Influencer Program’s goal is to spread awareness of SOS Illinois’ unique mission and needs throughout the year, specifically during April and May (Child Abuse Prevention Month and Foster Care Awareness Month, respectively). As digital engagement is important for strengthening SOS Illinois’ brand now more than ever, we urge you to consider getting involved as an SOS Illinois Influencer to help us grow our network of friends, partners, and donors. Additionally, this handy toolkit helps you along the way so creating content about SOS Illinois is simple.
