The Power of Speaking Up

After returning home from serving in Ecuador or Thailand, you may feel as though you are unable to continue to help the children you love. You may want to donate or sponsor but may not have the funds to do so.

However, there is one way you can always help: 

Share your experience.

Orphanage Support Services Organization (OSSO) would not have the number of volunteers it has had since its founding if it weren't for volunteers sharing their experiences. In fact, most people who apply to volunteer with OSSO hear about us through someone else β€” whether a friend, a family member, or a friend of a friend.

Spread the word. Encourage others to volunteer.

Simply talk to those around you about your experience. We need your voice. Your voice makes a difference in the number of volunteers who serve and it makes a difference in the lives of the children you love. Look for opportunities to share your experience with friends, family, coworkers, and anyone else around you. You never know who could be interested in volunteering!

Of course, don't forget to use social media to share pictures, experiences, and OSSO's posts with all of your friends and followers online. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for updates and great posts you can re-share with others!

5 Easy Ways to Help Orphans

The Power of 5 is something we started doing for October 4 Orphans. (October 4 Orphans is a campaign we run every October to raise awareness and funds to help the orphans we serve. If you want to know more about October 4 Orphans, see what we've had done previously.)

Help orphans in Ecuador and Thailand.

Change one child's life with one ordinary act of kindness at a time. Speaking up may seem like a small thing, but with such a large group of alumni, we know can pull together to raise awareness and help the children we love in ways we've yet to imagine. Spread the word.
