World Aids Day

Today, December 1st, is World AIDS Day.  The purpose of World AIDS Day is to provide exposure and help raise money for AIDS treatment and research. To increase awareness of the disease, fight the prejudice of those who are afflicted and improve education for those who are misinformed about HIV and AIDS. The theme for this year’s World AIDS Day is Universal Access and Human Rights. 

For more information on the theme of World AIDS Day 2009 click HERE, for more info on World AIDS Day as a whole visit the official website HERE. Twitter, which has grown to massive proportions this year, has turned #red for World AIDS Day to help raise awareness and and funds for HIV/AIDS treatment and research.

Of course, I personally love the (RED) campaign. The campaign partners with companies around the world, to denote a portion of the proceeds from particular items to go directly to the Global Fund. Be sure to head over to facebook to join the (Red) campaign and learn more about it!  I am sure that it comes as no surprise, I am going to give Gap a little plug here: be sure to head to your local Gap Store to pick up some Product (RED) Artist T. Perhaps pick up for a few for Christmas presents as well!
