A Foundation for Children with HIV and AIDS

ballerinas,ballets,children,dancers,dances,dancing,entertainment,girls,personsI am such a sucker for children. Whenever I see the kids fundraising by selling candy or cookies or whatever , I can’t possibly say no. Though recently I have gotten better at just giving them the 2 dollars without taking the candy bar. Better for me AND them.

And it also must be noted that one of my absolute favorite things in the world to do is dance. I am always dancing and singing while I do dishes, clean the living room, dust, get ready for work etc. yes, I AM that girl.

So when one of my coworkers told me of the University of Chicago’s dance marathon to raise money for an organization that supports children with HIV and AIDS in the greater Chicago area, how could I possibly say no?!

Earning money for a good cause, my coworker Regina, is busting her butt to stay on her feet for an entire 12 hours and DANCE. I hope you take a moment to read about her and the organization and possibly donate a bit. Doesn’t have to be much. Every little bit counts!


In the hebrew language, letters also represent numbers and the letters that make up the number 18 spell out the word “life.” So it is customary in the Jewish religion to donate in increments of 18. to life!
