It has been interesting to watch them grow and mature as a professional charity. They started in 2004 without much know how, however now (2013) they have grown into a professional level charity. Well done to them all. The event in 2012 was well received and I spoke to a few people that attended, they said they had a good time and apparently raised a lot of money for the cause.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

keep going

When you think about it, these children are born into an incredibly challenging situation. Born with a chronic and fatal disease, the same disease that has taken their parent's lives, these children need our generosity to help them have a normal, sustainable life. Roses and Rosemary has provided live sustaining medication through fundraising over the last 8 years and the organization's continued work keeps 100's of children alive. While that number may pale in comparison to the millions that are infected with the HIV virus it still makes all the difference in their lives. The more support Roses and Rosmeary receives the more lives we can save.

I have been a part of this organization for 4 years now and I have seen the impact made on these children's lives. Often these children are forgotten but these drugs make a difference. I am a part of this organization because I want to be the voice of these children who are often crying but not often heard.

I have seen first-hand the positive impact that funds raised by Roses & Rosemary have on the HIV/ AIDS impacted children of Southern Africa. I had the priviledge of visiting some of the charities in South Africa that R&R supports and met many of the families that are supported by these funds raised. It was so touching to see the children with HIV who had received medication funded by R&R living a very healthy life....playing soccer in the street with their friends or helping mom in the kitchen! Roses & Rosemary has an extensive screening process to ensure that the charities they work with only use the funds as intended....to provide medication and direct support to these children. They often visit the charities personally to see the funds at work! It is reassuring to know that donations given go straight to the children who need the support.

Your Generosity. Our Passion. Saving Lives.

Roses & Rosemary provides life-prolonging medication and support to the more than 20 million children in Africa infected or orphaned by HIV/AIDS by raising money and awareness through local events, volunteer opportunities, and online donations.

As a cloud-based nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation, Roses & Rosemary’s programs are highly efficient and fully audited to ensure all funds are maximized to benefit on-the-ground healthcare supplies and programs.

Founded in 2004, the organization has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars, which at only $50 per month per child, which makes an impact. More information on upcoming events, one-time or monthly donations, and lifesaving results can be found at on at www.rosesandrosemary.org or facebook.com/RosesandRosemary
The leadership team and Board of Directors have many years’ experience in both charitable endeavors and business. Added to their work is that of a team of approximately 50 highly committed and professional volunteers. Both the Board of Directors and the volunteers conduct fundraising, make donations themselves, and leverage professional abilities to raise money that can be put to use on the ground in Africa.

Roses symbolizes love and caring, Rosemary symbolizes medical support both connected with a Red Ribbon. See the positive impact of our work here
