SOS came to my aid in November 09 when I had become very ill. I had worked successfully for many many years in the industry and had a solid career but, over the past two years when worked started to dry up. Life had whittled down to nothing, savings gone,huge debts and health deteriorating. I had nowhere else to turn being self-employed singer/composer and came across SOS on the internet and called. I received immediate help and the most sensitive counselling along assistance with rent - not to mention countless resources and referrals to other benevolent societies which are assisting me to this day. I do not know what I would have done without them, their guidance and support. They took my problems seriously and in the sharing of them, I had been able to begin to sort things out and see that there is a pathway through to a creative life and good health. What an amazing organization this is and a miracle that I found them. Thank you, thank you, thank you..

In 2009, SOS provided me with the opportunity to continue my education at the Master's level by granting me a generous scholarship. Without their support I would not have had the funds to begin my Master's in Opera Performance. SOS really cares about the people they work with and they show it just by sending a short e-mail to ask how things are going. I am truly grateful for SOS.

SOS was able to help me at a most critical time in my life when certain reliable sources of work had shifted and I found myself with insufficient income for the next month's rent and living expenses. I am grateful for organizations such as SOS who strive to help those of us who have devoted our efforts to singing and the musical arts. Thank you for being there!

This organization was amazingly supportive when I was sick from pancreatic cancer with no health insurance. They helped me with money, support and organizing other places to contact for funds. I would never have been able to handle this without the wonderful advice and support of wendy garfinkel and society of singers. candye kane

Society of Singers has been a great blessing to me on two separate occasions when I needed help the most. The staff was very nice to me, considering my situation and observing the utmost confidentiality as well as helping me to keep my self-respect during a very hard time. Hats off to SOS and all of its staff for the superb work you do for artists and singers. And thank you for being there for me.

After Hurricane Katrina, I needed financial help to begin rebuilding my career in another city. The city was Chicago, it was bigger, scarier, and colder, for an unknown singer like myself. S.O.S. was able to assist me with some of my utilities when the work just wasn't there for me. It may not seem like a lot, but it was exactly what I needed to get by at that time. I still live in Chicago today. Thanks S.O.S.!

SOS is one of the most amazing organizations! Their support is genuine. I am a singer who has gone through some personal challenges mostly stemming from the remnants of a divorce. SOS has shown nothing but compassion towards me in addition to their unending support and guidance. Wendy you're the BEST!!!! I really do appreciate you and Society of Singers.

I am a performer who left her hometown and moved to NY to follow her dreams . In the process got married and had a child. 7 years into my marriage it fell apart. I found myself alone, a single mom with no current income from a show in 6 months. Singers Society helped me in my time of need more than i could have asked for. Thanks SOS!!!!Please help SOS CONTINUING THIS AMAXINGLY HELPFUL ORGANIIZATION BY DONATING NOW.
