World AIDS Day

Today, December 1st, is significant, for no other reason, than it’s World AIDS Day. Please consider giving anything you can, least of all your attention, to the fight against a completely “outrageous” and absurdly “solvable” health issue, ravaging so many individuals, sure, but entire families, too, across the globe.

What can you do? Fair question. One I’ll admit I often ask myself. And it’s a question which I can say I haven’t a fulfilling answer. But that’s just me. But you, like I have in the past, could start by visiting The Stephen Lewis Foundation and, simply, read. And if the mood should strike you, and you possess the means, you could throw a couple bucks at, what I see is, a very valuable organization, doing very important work;

“The Stephen Lewis Foundation supports community-based organizations working to turn the tide of HIV/AIDS in Africa. Since 2003, we have funded more than 300 projects in 15 countries. These grassroots groups are the lifeline for their communities: they provide counselling and education about HIV prevention, care and treatment; distribute food, medication and other necessities; reach the sick and vulnerable through home-based health care; help orphans and vulnerable children access education and work through their grief; and support grandmothers caring for their orphaned grandchildren…”

Consider it, please? Every little bit helps…
