George W. Bush continues to give back
How I miss the leadership of George W. Bush! In his private life, he continues to give back to the world around him. From the Wounded Warrior Project with wounded military veterans to his trip to Africa with Laura and daughters Jenna and Barbara.
Watch the YouTube video of the former President's African trip: "On December 1-5, 2011 President and Mrs. Bush traveled to Tanzania, Zambia and Ethiopia. The trip demonstrated President and Mrs. Bush's continued commitment to the people of Africa through the work of the George W. Bush Institute's (GWBI) Global Health program.
"The trip also highlighted the Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon® initiative, an innovative partnership between GWBI, the U.S. Department of State President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), and other private partners. The Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon initiative leverages public and private investments and existing health infrastructures to combat two of the leading causes of cancer death among women in Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America - cervical and breast cancer."
