Thanks to Audrey for sending me the link to an amFAR ad commemorating world AIDS day. Below the video are links to some fabulous organizations doing the hard work of HIV/AIDS research, education, prevention and care. Pick one, and send them a check. In particular, there are a few local orgs here in Maine who are going to need our support, especially given the insane budget cuts that are about to happen in Augusta. If there are other orgs or foundations that should be posted, shoot me a comment and I'll put them up. Gotta spread the word and not the virus.
And then revisit my own tribute to a dear friend lost to this disease. This madness simply needs to end.
