World AIDS Day
Today is World AIDS DAY.
"World AIDS Day is observed every year on December 1st. The World Health Organization established World AIDS Day in 1988. World AIDS Day provides governments, national AIDS programs, faith organizations, community organizations, and individuals with an opportunity to raise awareness and focus attention on the global AIDS epidemic."
Here are a few facts about the epidemic in the US. Remember to tell someone you know a fact about AIDS to spread awareness and make/buy a ribbon and wear it today in rememberance of all those who have contracted the virus.
The thread character in my banner has on a red ribbon for awareness.
