How will you show your support?

Today is World AIDS Orphans Day.  Over 16 million children worldwide have lost one or both parents to AIDS.  I am astounded by that figure.  HIV is totally and completely preventable and treatable.  It is considered a manageable, chronic illness.  Some medical professionals go so far as to say it is more easily managed than chronic illnesses such as Diabetes or other non-infectious blood disorders.  People should not be dying of AIDS.  Children should not be orphaned because of this disease. 

Please consider what you can do today to make a difference in the lives of the world's orphans.  If anyone chooses to make a donation to B&H's adoption fund this weekend (via From HIV to Home or Chip-In), we will donate 10% to support the HIV programs within their orphanage.  Remember, they 2 of the 16 million.
