MTV Staying Alive grant winner, Chasing Zero, came to MTV HQ to sell ice cream to fight HIV. See how they got on…
Summer is quickly coming to an end, so last week we used the last of the summer sun to eat lots of ice cream. But not just any ice cream.
The MTV Staying Alive Foundation has been supporting Chasing Zero since 2012. This youth-led HIV charity works together with students in Oxford and other universities in the UK to raise awareness about HIV prevention. Together with a team of dedicated student volunteers they visit universities across the UK, give inspirational talks, and engage young people in conversations about safer sex and HIV prevention.
To raise additional money for its activities, Chasing Zero also organises ice cream sales. The ice cream is provided by G&D’s from Oxford and all profits go towards Chasing Zero.
Thanks to the ice-cream hungry staff at MTV UK, we were able to raise over £300.
Hooray for ice cream!
