I am Brenda Lee Eager, singer/songwriter/actress/ vocal coach. I am happy to write and tell you how SOS and Wendy have helped me in the past years. It has not been an easy road being in the music business these past 43 years and there were times that I needed help and had no place to go. I was led to S.O.S and they saved my butt! Twice! I pray that in the near future that I will be able to start contributing back to the fund because it is where I want to give back and help someone else who is pursuing their dreams.Peace and blessings to all , we truly are ONE!

I have had financial assistance from sos, and it helped me to continue in my field.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

contribute more money so that any artist in need would have the security of knowing that sos will help.

I am a singer. I am a member of Society of Singers and a volunteer whenever they need me. Since I was a little girl I dreamed of being a singer. I support SOS in order to protect the dream of every singer. When a singer falls on hard times Society of Singers is their safety net. It is our obligation as singers to become donor members. May I never need their help. For those who do need their help -- especially in these recent difficult years -- we must support the mission of Society of Singers.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing the stories of the singers Society of Singers has helped -- many times directly from the affected singer who has shared their experience at a meeting or at an event.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

They have already made some well thought out changes so I don't know what else I could suggest at this time.

My interactions with clients, who are so grateful for the personal assistance they get - not just financially, but the mental and emotional support they receive as well.

I am a social work intern at SOS and have come to believe in the mission of this great organization. SOS helps an under-served population in some of their greatest times of need and is so valuable. I only wish more people knew about SOS and that more successful musicians supported it.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

witnessing the impact on clients who feel supported, heard and helped by SOS.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase funding.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with clients.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help so many singers and improve their quality of life. The impact would be immense.

Ways to make it better...

the organization was supported by more donors.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the drop in donations (partly due to the economy) and that SOS is not as well-known as it could/should be.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I hope everyone who knows about SOS makes sure that everyone they know and those they meet also know about SOS.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
