We do it for the kids!

Each year we donate thousands of dollars to two important charities that fight against Pediatric AIDS. The organizations emphasize the HIV/AIDS epidemic both at home in the U.S. and around the world through spreading research, awareness and messages of acceptance. Read more about our charities below:

Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF)

EGPAF is the world leader in the fight against pediatric AIDS. In the 20 years since the Foundation began, it has become a worldwide leader by using three main strategies: funding critical research and training; launching and supporting global health initiatives to prevent mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV and provide care and treatment; and advocating for children’s health. The Foundation currently works in 17 countries and more than 4,500 sites worldwide.

One Heartland

One Heartland is a national non-profit organization committed to greatly improving the lives of children, youth and their families impacted by HIV/AIDS and other significant life challenges worldwide. One Heartland offers children affected by or infected with HIV/AIDS “The best week of their lives.” Each year, more than one hundred kids become part of the camp’s year-round community–a community that lasts a lifetime. Children from around the country and from all backgrounds are able to go to camp for a week, free of cost and escape the stigma accompanying the disease and the hardships of life at home. At Camp Heartland, these kids are surrounded by love and support and a reason to survive.
