SOS Children’s Villages USA launches “No Child Alone” holiday campaign

The campaign highlights the need for every child to have a loving family.

WASHINGTON, D.C., November 1, 2021 – Today, SOS Children’s Villages USA launches its “No Child Alone” campaign for the holiday season. The campaign will span the month leading up to Giving Tuesday (November 30) and continue through December 31, 2021. “No Child Alone” raises awareness of the fact that 1 in 10 children—220 million children globally—lacks parental care or is at risk of losing it. SOS Children’s Villages USA encourages the public to support the campaign to ensure that no child grows up alone.

The “No Child Alone” campaign includes a video featuring children from all over the world answering: “Show us how your mom or dad cares for you.” SOS Children’s Villages received more than 400 video clips from children who captured these touching moments with their parents.

But the sad reality is that an estimated 10% of children miss out on these moments because they are growing up alone, without anyone to care for them. SOS Children’s Villages believes that every child deserves to feel the joy, comfort and togetherness of family. The “No Child Alone” campaign aims to ensure that every vulnerable child has a loving family and a safe, stable home this holiday season—and all year around.
