You can't get AIDS from a hug..

Today There was a very inspirational episode of Extreme Makeover : Home Edition. It was the season finale and it was about a family of four kids, two with HIV/AIDS belonging to a single mother. The kids attend a camp started in MINNESOTA!! Called Camp Heartland.. just about 90 miles north of the twin cities. The camp is for kids with HIV/AIDS or in relation to a family member(s) dealing with the disease. Kids with the disease not only suffer from it, but they also suffer from discrimination and ignorance about the disease. The kids are rejected by their classmates and teachers, kicked out of camps, churches, swimming pools, schools, etc. How terrible. So the camp is a time when these kids can feel at ease, like they have somewhere to belong.


The episode truly inspired me, I have decided to give a small contribution to the camp heartland, you could help to.

Look into it at http://www.campheartland.org/ any donation helps.

Hope you have a wonderful day!
