Madonna's movie 'I am Because We Are' airs today at 9pm EST on the Sundance Channel. Madonna has been awakened to the crisis in Malawi. It is an impoverished African nation where one million children are orphaned by AIDS.

World AIDS Day ♥

Today, December 1st is World Aids Day. The World AIDS Day website has a ton of ways that you can help educate yourself, others and get involved in the cure for AIDS. I have participated in the AIDS Walk and have supported several charities over the years. What have you done lately?
Support World AIDS Day
Here are some ideas from the World AIDS Day website:
  • Get a red ribbon collection box for your workplace, school, community centre or event to raise money and awareness of HIV.
  • Organise a red-themed fundraising event in support of the NAT. Here are some ideas of how to turn your event red for World AIDS Day:
    • Have a red non-uniform day at your school or workplace and make a donation for the privilege of wearing red
    • Do a sponsored run, bike ride or whatever takes your fancy dressed completely in red
    • Organise a red-themed party or red-themed dinner for friends and ask everyone to make a donation
    • Or come up with your own red-themed idea!
