World AIDS Day

Being the captain of an AIDSwalkphilly team this year, gave me the opportunity to read a lot of literature on the AIDS epidemic, the efforts to find a cure, and care for the millions of people living with AIDS.  There are so many ways to help fund research, to support World AIDS Day, to lobby for rights, to sustain free testing.... every little action and donation helps. We will win this fight!



....... I'd like to make a special plea to my Philadelphia fashion family.  When you're out doing your holiday shopping this season, think of the AIDS Fund Toy Drive.  Bring a new, unwrapped toy to the William Way Community Center for a child infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS now through Sunday, December 12th. Click HERE for drop off times.

...... And Support the John Wind AIDS Jewelry Project!
