For many years, 1 December, World AIDS Day, was observed as a “day without art.”
One source tells us:
According to UNAIDS estimates, there are now 34 million people living with HIV. During 2010 some 2.7 million people became newly infected with the virus, including an estimated 390,000 children. Despite a significant decline in the estimated number of AIDS-related deaths over the last five years, there were still an estimated 1.8 million AIDS-related deaths in 2010.
I’ve lost friends to AIDS, and perhaps you have, too.
Please consider honoring the memory of our loved ones with a gift to the AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts, God’s Love We Deliver, or another organization doing good work. (The ones I mention helped friends of mine.)
