BENEFITING: The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation
I am fundraising to donate to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation. I visited Cambodia a few years ago for a school trip and we volunteered at a couple different orphanages. Working with orphans with HIV/AIDS was an amazing, life-changing experience. The children there had so little yet still seemed to be happier and more appreciative of life than many of us seem to be. I am so happy that I had the chance to meet those children, but at the same time it also makes me a little sad to think that not all of the children that I met a few years ago may not still be alive today. That realization made me want to help fundraise so that I can donate to help foundations like the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation to help them conduct new research to finally put an end to pediatric AIDS. "Your donation will help spread hope, and bring us one step closer to creating the first HIV-free generation."
