World AIDS Day 2008 - Bloggers Unite

World AIDS Day 2008 - Bloggers Unite

Today marks the 20th anniversary for World AIDS Day 2008, and bloggers from around the world are uniting to join in the observance.

Worldwide an estimated 33 million people are living with HIV. In the United States, an estimated one million Americans are living with HIV.

In the U.S., both the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of HIV/AIDS Policy’s AIDS.gov have come together to share HIV/AIDS information with the blogging community, including Bloggers Unite, for World AIDS Day 2008.

Bloggers Unite is an attempt to harness the power of the blogosphere to make the world a better place. By asking bloggers to write about a particular subject on 1 day of the month, a single voice can be joined with thousands to help make a difference; from raising awareness for cancer, to an effort to better education systems or supporting 3rd world countries.

This month, Bloggers Unite is working with NIDA and AIDS.gov because they value and recognize the power of a voice. Multiply that voice by the thousands and the sound of humanity will echo the blogosphere. HIV/AIDS affects too many in our communities to ignore. Be a part of a growing community of leaders that lift their voices.

This is also a perfect time to give to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Even if you're nowhere near Broadway, please consider giving to the nation's leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organization by clicking here to make a donation.

Here's to your good health and all the best for your loved ones. Thank you for your support.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
