Thank you for your support to World AIDS Day Gala!

We are so grateful for your generosity in supporting orphans & families affected by HIV/AIDS in Lesotho, Africa!

December 8, 2016

The sun has set and the excitement of the World AIDS Day Gala has settled in our hearts and minds but as the days pass, we are left with great hope and inspiration because of you! Whether you attended as a guest, were an entertainer, sponsor, donor, a volunteer, board member or staff member, we are so grateful for your generosity; THANK YOU! Our final grand total for the evening is…


Today, 1 in 4 people in Lesotho are HIV+ and 1 in 10 are orphaned. As we commit to the fight against HIV/AIDS in Lesotho, our foster children, and those devastated by the disease become our light to guide us along our path to making our goal, a reality. With your generosity, each day we get closer to seeing our vision of one country, AIDS free.

Thank you for being part of the World AIDS Day Gala and for shining your light in the fight against HIV/AIDS, in support of Bracelet of Hope. I am confident that as we band together, we can achieve our vision of eradicating AIDS. As we commit to the fight, you give us the opportunity to provide safe, healthy, happy futures for our foster children in Lesotho. From the bottom of our hearts, at Bracelet of Hope, in Canada and in Lesotho, we are truly grateful for your support.
