HRW film festival, CANFAR, and Have a Heart - Posted By: Muqing
Just saw a documentary as a part of the 5th Human Rights Watch Film Festival in Toronto on abandoned children living with HIV/AIDS in Romania and their foster parents.
Before the screening, a lady from CANFAR (Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research) gave a short speech, and she mentioned something that might be interesting to fellow Canadian youths who are interested in HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns. CANFAR runs a program called Have a Heart, which is organized in conjunction with high schools across Canada in all provinces and territories. CANFAR provides to schools HIV/AIDS materials to raise awareness and also supplies to create "heart o'grams" for fundraising, which goes specifically towards youth-related HIV/AIDS research. Sounds pretty cool: I just checked out the website, and apparently the registration for 2008 has closed, but there's always next year! Have a Heart link here!
