I want to introduce you to an organization doing a lot of good called the MTV Staying Alive Foundation”.
Their Mission Statement:
As a global grant-making organization, the Foundation’s mission is to encourage, energize, and empower young people who are involved in HIV/AIDS awareness, education and prevention campaigns.
The Foundation does this by presenting the Staying Alive Awards to young individuals and youth groups who are focused on stopping the spread of HIV and who have demonstrated the potential to become future leaders. The award comes with a financial grant to assist them in continuing and expanding their work, and provides public recognition to inspire others to get involved.
What they are doing… is exactly what needs to happen Education. If we are ever going to truly fight this disease… people have to understand what the consequences of irresponsible actions.
