Do-gooder rockers Chris Daughtry and his bandmates packed World Vision's AIDS caregiver kits at a local Denver high school.

The students of Manual High School in Denver, Colorado were treated to a very special photo op last Tuesday: Daughtry was on hand to assist in the students’ efforts to pack AIDS caregiver kits to send to Africa.

Chris Daughtry and his bandmates thanked the school’s volunteers for their work and posed for photos inside a large ribbon which consisted of 6.1 million pennies – a penny for every person who has died of AIDS since the last election.

Also on hand were Democratic Senator Tom Daschle and Representative Nita Lowey, as well as Princess Zulu of Zambia.

“I want to thank all of you for being here at the convention, ready to do something very unconventional. This is a good example of how American voters are ready to elect a candidate who will show leadership when it comes to issues of extreme poverty,” Princess Zulu said.

Daughtry visited Africa earlier in the year as representatives of Bono's ONE Campaign.
