Today is World AIDS Day!

Sorry I posted this extra late but if you didn't know, today is World AIDS Day. This is a day when individuals and organizations get together to bring attention to the global AIDS epidemic. 


According to UNAIDS estimates, there are now 33.2 million people living with HIV, including 2.5 million children. During 2007 some 2.5 million people became newly infected with the virus. Around half of all people who become infected with HIV do so before they are 25 and are killed by AIDS before they are 35.
You can help out the cause by discussing these issues with your friends or family and going to get tested! I'm negative, how about YOU?
