If anyone is interested, I do UNICEF stuff with Key Club and this year's campaign is "Kicking AIDS out of Kenya." The program puts on soccer games for girls in Kenya and teaches them sex education. The education on AIDS is really poor over there. For example a man raped his own daughter because it's widely believed there that if you have sex with a virgin AIDS will disapear. Currently, we have been putting UNICEF collection boxes in businesses so if you know a place where we can put one let me know.
