World AIDS Day.

last post of the day.

today is World AIDS Day.

33.2 million people are living with AIDS.
2.5 million are children.
Africa has 12 million AIDS orphans.
In developing countries, 7.1 million people are in immediate need of life-saving AIDS drugs - only 28% are receiving the drugs.
2.1 million people died from AIDS across the globe this year.

the AIDS Action Committee of MA has information and resources. if you're in DC, help out at the Whitman Walker Clinic. if you're in New York, check out God's Love We Deliver or Gay Men's Health Crisis (which no longer just deals with gay men). there are tons of ways to get involved. i'll leave it to others to post more links and information about places to volunteer, donate and help.

start today.
