My family and I visited Africa in 2014 donating gifts at a school and spending time with the students and teachers. Unfortunately, Swaziland has one of the highest prevalence of HIV and healthcare is limited there. I want to help more and fortunately the Pediatric AIDS Coalition does that. #EndTheStigma
UCLA’s PAC is the largest student-run yearlong philanthropic organization on the West Coast. It raised $5.5 million in 18 years. PAC coordinates an iconic UCLA tradition, Dance Marathon. We literally and figuratively “take a stand” for 26 hours! Hundreds of people fill the famous Pauley Pavilion pledging to raise $10/hour. All proceeds are for Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, UCLA AIDS Institute, Laurel Foundation, and UCLA’s PAC.
