Today Is World AIDS Day...

World AIDS Day. December 1.

Today is World AIDS Day. 
Since 1988, December 1st has been a day of thought and fund-raising for the fight on AIDS... though it gets less press now, AIDS is still real and out there and impacting lives.

  The 2013 theme for World AIDS Day is “Shared Responsibility: Strengthening Results for an AIDS-Free Generation.”

AIDS has killed over 25 million people, and over 33 million are currently affected. There were almost 2 million new infections last year. 
Are people complacent? Even though there are effective treatment options now, the ideal of course would be to not need treatment.

I am going to make a donation to The Canadian Foundation For AIDS Research this week (CANFAR), and encourage everyone else to do the same with their local organization.  Every dollar helps, every second counts…
