Unity, Excellence, Culture... Do your Part!

a.    HIV/AIDS Awareness

                                                               i.      HIV/AIDS is killing our community as well as the general public either emotionally, mentally, or physically. We need to fight back. The only way to do that is teaching prevention by the use of condoms and getting tested. We could host workshops, a get tested day, walk a thon, and other events to educate others and make them aware that ANYONE can get it if they are not careful.

                                                             ii.      Here are some awareness days Awareness days: Dec. 1 is World AIDS Awareness Day, October 15 is National Latino Aids Awareness Day, February 7 is National Black HIV/AIDS day. March 10 is National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS awareness Day, May 18 is HIV Vaccine Awareness Day, May 19 is National Asian and Pacific Islander (API) HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, June 8 is Caribbean American HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.

b.       Get Fit Campaign

                                                               i.      Get Fit Campaign The get fit campaign is based of the get fit experience crew that would go around the U.S to host events that would be both educational and fun that would encourage Americans to get fit. There several illnesses that are directly and indirectly linked to an unfit individual such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and hypertension. Even though we do not have to have the traveling group come to us we can put on several events through out the year that promotes healthy living such as a get fit day (Olympics, active activities), healthy cooking contest or potluck and so on. http://www.getfitus.net/

c.       Save the Children

                                                               i.      Save the Children Http://www.savethechildren.org   is a national organization whose slogan is “Creating a lasting change for children in need in the U.S and around the world.” There are so many disadvantaged youth among us so we can do our part to make a change. We can host events to grant children with school supplies, necessary needs, and quality time in our community or we could host a benefit or an event to raise money to donate to the organization.
