During last year’s fast, we raised almost $2000 in 3 days for the children of South Africa. Let’s beat our goal on World AIDS Day 2012!
Friends of CHOSA and former volunteers will pledge to eat only pap and porridge for three days, and we are calling on you to pledge a dollar amount for each day of the fast. Every contribution will go directly to the projects we support in South Africa, community-based organizations ensuring that every child is provided not only food, clothing, shelter, and academic enrichment, but the love and hope that every child needs to thrive.
December 1 marks World AIDS Day, a time to remember the millions of lives lost to HIV/AIDS and the children who have been left behind. Most importantly, World AIDS Day is a time to act. This year, we want to stand in solidarity with the children CHOSA serves in South Africa by sacrificing our extensive food choices available to us in the US to bring attention to the hunger and poverty faced by millions of South African children.
CHOSA believes in standing alongside ordinary women and men in South Africa who have an extraordinary passion and commitment to serving the most vulnerable children in their community. We partner with local grassroots organizations, children’s homes, and day-care centers that began when these courageous community members saw a need and utilized every resource available to them, at deep personal cost, to meet that need. Every dollar raised through our fast will contribute to these community-based efforts.
