Passing Data Through an AJAX Call

Hey all so Im trying to put data through an AJAX call into this div

<div class="scroll-pane2 blue small" style="">
<p id="bulletinBodyArea" style="margin-right:20px;"></p>

The AJAX is being triggered when one clicks on one of the links being fed from the database

<div class="bulletinSectionAccordion rounded">
<p class="blue" style="font-size:19px;margin-left:23px;margin-top:15px;margin-bottom:10px;">Archives</p>

$query = "SELECT * FROM `bulletin` LEFT JOIN `bulletininschool` ON `bulletin`.`id`=`bulletininschool`.`bulletin` WHERE `school` = 2 ";

while($row = $result->fetch_array()) {
echo '<p class="medium titi" style="margin-left:23px;">'.$row['title'].'</p>';

It gets called and then passes the data


function getBody(){

And this is the AJAX function


$db_host = "localhost";
$db_user = "root";
$db_pass = "";
$db_name = "isl";

mysql_connect($db_host, $db_user, $db_pass, $db_name);
mysql_select_db("isl") or die(mysql_error());

$states = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `bulletin` LEFT JOIN `bulletininschool` ON `bulletin`.`id`=`bulletininschool`.`bulletin` WHERE `school` = 2" );

while($state = mysql_fetch_array($states)){
echo "<p>".$state['body']."</p>";

Now the links that one clicks that are fed from the database are actually article titles, and then when one clicks on a specific title the AJAX call should go and fetch the body text associated with that article. But I'm having trouble understanding how I should go through that. I'm doing the correct queries and getting the titles and the bodies but I just cant figure out how to associate them. Do I pass a variable to the AJAX call?

Thank you
