UGA HEROs is a non-profit student run organization that strives to improve the quality of life for the 12,000 children in Georgia infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS by raising money to support the programs offered by H.E.R.O. for Children, Inc., spreading awareness about the growing problem of pediatric AIDS, and participating in service initiatives aimed at improving the lives of affected children.
We've provided 350 kids with over 18,000 hours of quality life care, raised over 2 million dollars, and with your help we can continue to expand programs such as SuperHEROs Mentoring, Camp High Five, HERO for a Day, Holiday of HEROs, and UGA HERO Olympics.
I, personally, have had the priviledge of being able to work with these children at Camp High Five. These children come into camp feeling defeated and hurt. They feel as if life has crushed them into something they never could have imagined. At camp, however, their conditions no longer define who they. They all have this in common, so it brought them all here. However, they can be whoever they want to be. They can climb up fifty feet in the air on a climbing wall, pull their own release chord so they can go soaring over the trees on our giant swing, and they also are able to ride horses and get into boats for the first time. This culture portrays how we at UGA HEROs are working hard to create in our everyday society. Please help us achieve out goal and donate to our cause.
There are three things you should know before you donate:
1. It only costs $2.74 per day to put one child through our Super HERO Program.
2. 100% of your donation goes to support our kids and their programs.
3. We're a 501(c)(3) and all donations are tax-deductible.
