LIGHT is a 501c3 accredited non-profit organization repurposed in response to Rocky Braat and BLOOD BROTHER as a way to directly help and support Rocky, the kids and associated orphanages. Together we help to improve the lives of these children.
The services that LIGHT provides are offered free of charge, regardless of religious beliefs, gender, socio-economic status, etc. LIGHT is not funded, governed, or advised by another NGO, non-profit, or religious organization.
Rocky Braat, a young man from a fractured family and a troubled past, went traveling through India without a plan. Then he met a group of HIV positive children living in an orphanage -- a meeting that changed everything for him.
Rocky left his life, friends, and career in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to live with the kids. Steve Hoover, his best friend and filmmaker, was unsettled and intrigued by this drastic action. In an effort to find out what compelled Rocky to give up every source of stability in his life, Hoover decided to trace Rocky's story, following him to India. He witnessed Rocky and the kids endure disease, abject poverty, and death.
But, strangest of all, in the midst of these troubles, he also saw their deep joy. And he came to understand why Rocky had given up everything he had to experience it.
'Blood Brother' is a story of friendship. It's a story of a life, stripped down to its essence. Most of all, it is a story about love, enduring in the face of death.

The AIDS orphans are always on our heart, so about 85% of the donations go to making them feel special and loved. We strive to give a deep sense of a mother's and father's love. There are various projects that we currently offer support to, including the AIDS orphans, children living in the slums, and the poor living in the villages. Needs always arise, and we will continue to post the needs as they become apparent.
