Let's get back to talking about caring for kids...
Before Christmas, this ad in Wired magazine caught my attention.
Was that Lenny Kravitz? If so, "What cause was he involved with?" I wondered.
I read on and learned about an organization called Keep a Child Alive.
Kravitz and numerous others have joined forces to launch "an urgent response to the AIDS pandemic ravaging Africa. They are "dedicated to providing life-saving anti-retroviral treatment to children and their families with HIV/AIDS ." (photo credit)
I'd like to help but isn't this problem overwhelming? "What can one person do?" I lamented.
On their website, I learned that "although life-saving AIDS medicine often costs less than a dollar a day, very few families can afford it."
They are asking each of us to give one dollar a day. They ask us to "please help them survive." The message is compelling. (photo credit)
Cam and I have discussed making the commitment. We haven't made it happen yet but I haven't lost site of the goal. The Girl in the Cafe movie brought the idea to mind again and I wanted to share it with you.
"Each and every one of us contains DNA that can be traced back to our African ancestors."
If you can Keep a Child Alive, please do.
