Students Raise Funds

Students in The Art Institute of Pittsburgh’s Social Problems class started a project to raise money for holiday gifts for children in Rocky Braat’s orphanage and community school in India. Rocky is a 2009 graduate of The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design. Rocky is featured in the Sundance Film Festival’s Audience and Grand Jury Prize Winning documentary, Blood Brother.
 
Jacqueline Felix, faculty member and instructor of the Social Problems class, said that after learning about the social and medical challenges of HIV in India, students decided to take on the project to provide Christmas gifts to Rocky's kids. “We are working with Rocky to select gifts for his 10 resident children, ages 15-19, and 30 children, ages 8-12, in his community school.”
 
The goal is to purchase gifts for all 40 children.
