For Our Children

May 1991 | Walt Disney Records | 64 minutes
The 20-song compilation features original and traditional children's music by a variety of exceptional performers. All proceeds from ''For Our Children'' will benefit the Pediatric AIDS Foundation. The foundation was formed in 1988 by Elizabeth Glaser, Susan DeLaurentis, and Susan Zeegen. With profits going to AIDS research, education, and assistance to hospitals, "For Our Children" is a worthy charity item, but the album also holds up as a work of art.

In 1981, Elizabeth Glaser was infected with the AIDS virus through a blood transfusion, and unknowingly passed it on to both of her children. The Glaser family’s tragedy inspired the creation of the Pediatric AIDS Foundation in 1988. Since then, we have been at the forefront of the fight against pediatric HIV/AIDS, making remarkable strides in our struggle against an illness that has ravaged the globe.
