For Our Children, 1991 edition, poetry, art, and music created to support children with HIV and AIDS.


Various writers, artists, and songwriters. First edition, 1991. Disney Press, a subsidiary of the Walt Disney Company.

"For Our Children" was created to raise awareness and funds for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports research and treatment for children living with HIV/AIDS. The book features poems, illustrations, and songs by various artists in support of the cause. Their book is a tribute to the resilience and courage of children affected by this disease, and a celebration of their joy and creativity.
