14 ways in 14 days…

In the two weeks leading up to World AIDS Day (December 1st) across Vermont and the world, Vermont CARES has put together a slate of two weeks’ worth of tangible ways you can make a difference in reducing the impact of HIV/AIDS.  We will be posting one new way to help reduce new infections, or to improve health and wellbeing, through our Facebook and Twitter accounts daily, linking to appropriate resources and web links. 

On World AIDS Day proper, we’ll be staffing tables around the counties we serve, with information, red ribbons to raise awareness, and links to nearby rapid HIV testing sites.  Also, for families and loved ones who have lost someone to HIV/AIDS, we will be holding a candlelight vigil at the UU Church in Burlington starting at 5:30 that evening. 

There are, of course, more than 14 ways you can make a difference.  World AIDS Day need not be your only time to volunteer, learn more, donate, support, and reach out.  People affected by HIV/AIDS globally need compassionate communities EVERY day. 

You can become a fan or friend of Vermont CARES through Facebook here to follow this mini-campaign as it unrolls:  http://www.facebook.com/vermont.cares
