Alex and Charlie

Children in Arizona, Connecticut and New York are raising awareness of (and money for) The Rosa Vera Fund. Jake Ray of AZ made this moving video using footage taken by his mom (aka Dr. Darlene Melk) in Montero. Lucia, Grace and Sophie, friends and family of Rosa Vera Fund board members, held a bake sale in CT to raise money. And Charlie & Alex (pictured here) helped sell Rosa Vera Fund holiday cards in Brooklyn, NY.
