BENEFITING: Generation Ubuntu
EVENT DATE: Dec 01, 2013
We are Allie (from Duke University) and Carly (from Stanford University) and are very proud to be #DoUbuntu Ambassadors for Ubuntu Africa's World AIDS Day campaign. Ubuntu Africa is a nonprofit organization that provides comprehensive care to HIV+ children in South Africa.
Our goal is to raise as many funds and as much awareness as possible for Ubuntu Africa before December 1st, World AIDS Day and get our campus, friends and families involved in exciting ways!
Most importantly, think about the meaning of Ubuntu. Ubuntu is a philosophy in Africa based on human connection usually explained with the phrase, "I am because we are." It should be just as important to you to help the person who sits next to you in class as it is to save a life across the world. We are all humans sharing a common connection so I ask, will you #DoUbuntu?
Here's what your donations can do:
$10 – provide nutritious hot meals for 10 HIV+ children
$25 – provide medical supplies for 5 HIV+ children for one month
$50 - provides counseling services for 5 HIV+ children for one month
$100 – provide a fun, enriching outing for 10 children
$250 - support the costs of an HIV+ child in Ubuntu Africa's program for a month
Thank you so much for your support. It means so much to us, but even more to the children whose lives we are changing!
With love and gratitude,
Allie and Carly
