The SOS Children's Village has come out winners in the Courts Jamaica 'Love for Likes' Facebook competition.

SOS Children's Village, The Wortley Home and Food for the Poor, allowed Courts Jamaica to use their charities to drive traffic to the Courts Facebook and Twitter pages for two months, by employing the Love for Likes campaign. Persons who were interested in supporting the three proposed charities were asked to 'like' the Courts Jamaica Facebook page and then vote for their favourite charity for funds to be donated to them. The initiative ran from September 28 to November 27, 2015.

The Courts Jamaica social media following grew from 92,269 fans in September to 97,153 in October, and then further increased to 101,922 in November. At the end, SOS Children's Village received the most feedback with 645 votes, followed by The Wortley Home for Girls with 512 votes and Food For The Poor with 437 votes. The presentations were made to the organisations recently.
