MY HERO was honored to be part of the TIME FOR HEROES event in Los Angeles in June of 2005. Volunteers worked with visitors to create MURALS for the ART MILES MURAL PROJECT. Celebrity "heroes" who also volunteered to be part of this annual fundraising event for the The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation were interviewed about their heroes by youth reporter Olivia Milch.
AIDS: THE GLOBAL CHALLENGE
In the fall of 1999, The United Nations Children's Fund reported that the current AIDS epidemic "has turned sub-Saharan Africa into a 'killing field'...and will wipe out enough adults to create
13 million orphans in the next 18
months." We must do everything we can to help these children.
Elizabeth Glaser led the fight with the creation of the The Pediatric AIDS Foundation.
Let's make this global crisis a cause for unity. Let's fight for the rights of these children
to live with dignity as we work to find the cure.
