BENEFITING: HEARTS EVERYWHERE REACHING OUT FOR CHILDREN INC
EVENT: UGA HEROs 2014
EVENT DATE: Oct 10, 2013
UGA HEROs is the primary fundraising arm for HERO for Children Inc, the ONLY organization in the state of Georgia providing quality of life care programs for children infected and/or affected by HIV/AIDS.
12,000 children in the state of Georgia are either infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. 90% of these children live below the poverty line, and over HALF of these children have lost one or BOTH parents to HIV/AIDS.
2013 marks the 10th year of H.E.R.O. for Children’s fight for children who have no one else fighting for them. In the past 10 years, H.E.R.O. has executed programs that provide children with a stable mentor, emotional and social support systems, educational tools to succeed academically, and with outings to places such as the Georgia Aquarium and Atlanta Zoo to expose children to sights and experiences that they never would have the opportunity to see normally. UGA HEROs has raised over $2 million to make these programs possible.
In honor of the 10th anniversary, please take 10 minutes to donate $10 to this incredible organization! Learn more about our HERO kids' stories by watching this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIbcXhIO7gk.
You don't need a cape to be a HERO!
