Map of National and International Angels

Where in the WORLD are YOU!

We want to map angel groups, raising funds for African Aids Angels, that are located outside of Victoria, B.C. Canada.

We'll send an email to the groups we know about but if we miss you, please send an email to to let us know where you are.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Where are you?

We would like to make a map to locate angel making groups.

If you are making angels at your home in Victoria, as an individual or as part of a group, we'd like to know where you are located. This will help us plan how to distribute materials effectively.

We'll be sending emails to home groups that we know about. If we miss you and you are planning to make angels any time this year, please send an email at africanaidsangels and tell us where you are located.

Aids Angels go International

A special welcome

to the new groups that are beginning this year,

especially those in the USA and the UK.

A note from Pender Island

I wanted to let you know that all those little angels on Pender Island brought in approximately $2,481 in 2007.

It is all very simple, and so grass-roots.

How Can I get Involved?

New Members

Our volunteers are taking a short break in January. If you are new and want to get involved with Aids Angels here are things to do until the next angel making session.

Read through our website and blog (check back through the archives). This will give you a good idea of our history and the purpose of our organization.

You can start collecting materials that can be used to make angels

*double wired ribbon (for wings),

*bits of old jewelry (rings, brooches and earrings are best),

*African or ethnic looking fabric. At the moment we have lots of cotton prints.


If you are outside the Victoria, B.C. area ask for the email manual “Making a Difference” and begin to plan.

Anyone who wants to be on our email contact list can send an email to We will include you on our contact list and send you brief email message when there is new information on the blog. ( every 2-3 weeks.)
