Most supplies are donated, so nearly all the funds raised go to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation.

Angel Hosts

In 2006 Dave Talbot started our angel making group after seeing angels made by a Victoria group. From 2006 to 2015 our group sold more than 6,000 angels. Each angel is hand made, unique and is given a traditional African name in memory of a child who has died of AIDS.

AIDS angels are available from the following retailers
