For the first time ever, Hanna High School in Brownsville, Texas was involved with World AIDS Day. After realizing how many events were happening around the world, I wanted to help make something happen here in Brownsville. So I did!
With the help of more than 60 students, classmates, professors and members of the school administration, I was able to talk about ONE’s petition to prevent children from being born with HIV by 2015 and raise many signatures by talking to my people in my classes, different student organizations and friends. Now that we have about 60 more people that know about what they can do to help this global fight against AIDS, I hope they are excited to continue volunteering for ONE Brownsville events and other local and global efforts.
If every person took that step to sign ONE’s petition, it would encourage elected officials to help the Global Fund reach the world goal to prevent children from being born with HIV by 2015. I’m excited to see how this one day helped make a “loud noise” along with other cities around Texas and the world!
