Live to Give: Keep a Child Alive
This edition of Live to Give was inspired by a documentary I watched recently about an organizations that gives support to those suffering from HIV/AIDS in Africa. The documentary followed the talented Alicia Keys and her charitable organization on a life changing trip to Africa that allowed five lucky winners to experience it all up close. The organization being featured this week is… Keep a Child Alive.
Back to the documentary (on Showtime now) for a second. It was only an hour long, but it really took you into the homes of those living with the disease or those who are now living after losing a loved one to HIV and/or AIDS.
The group also visited several charitable organizations that Keep a Child Alive helps fund. For me, the documentary inspired me to hold on to the goal of starting my own charitable organization and to continue giving back to others. I want to live my life in a space of service to others in order to have a positive impact in the world.
Keep a Child Alive provides treatment, love & support to families affected by HIV/AIDS. Here’s its mission:
