WORLD AIDS DAY
Back in college, I organized an AIDS awareness week a couple of my fellow Badgers, Sirnu and Safiya. We were part of ADVANCE, which was student organization driven to challenge apathy and ignorance on our campus. My involvement in the AIDS event was an open-eyeing and heart-touching, especially since the money we raised went to Camp Heartland. Camp Heartland helps children affected by HIV/AIDS through various services and advocacy events, and the flagship program is a summer camp for these children. You can help them out here.
Anyways, today is World AIDS Day. Check out their site. More information on HIV/AIDS here.
