The average person does not place love above his own security. Rocky Braat is not your average person. Rocky has devoted his life to working at an AIDS orphanage in Chennai, India. The children have been abandoned by their families and society. But despite all the pain that this world has shown them, they have learned to love.
I Was Always Beautiful is the raw and unedited documentation of Braat’s life in India and what the children have taught him. Experience his journey through personal journal entries and full-page photographs. All proceeds from the book will go to help Rocky in his work.

We have set up a 501c3 accredited non-profit organization called LIGHT in response to Rocky Braat and BLOOD BROTHER as a way to directly help and support Rocky, the kids and other orphanages. Together we hope to help change their lives.
We use a secure and verified service called StayClassy for donations. If you click the link below we have set up an easy way to make a one time or monthly donation to help in Rocky’s efforts. You will also be able to print out for tax purposes.
Your donation will enable us to provide for the orphans’ needs in Chennai as well as implement our other various projects. We are run fully by volunteers who give up their time, energy, and money.
To view our goals and efforts with the donations please visit LIGHT’s webpage here.
The accolades and the film itself—charming, heart-wrenching, revelatory—have brought the orphanage much-needed attention and money, but Rocky’s work continues. Rocky plans to expand housing for teens aging out of the orphanage and offer training to kickstart their career education.
Before he can start those projects, Rocky and the orphanage has to feed the kids. Eggs and milk for growing youngsters don’t come cheap. So we have launched a Rally.org campaign to buy one year’s worth of eggs (that’s more than 24,000 of them) and milk packets (almost 11,000). You can learn more about the campaign and ways to help at the following link Rally.org/bloodbrother.
