Head Butt - World AIDS Day Edition
"If only learning about HIV is as simple as A-B-C" - World AIDS Day 2009
YOH HEAD BUTT!
Dec 09 Edition
on this very commemorative day, YOH launches its first very Head Butt! monthly newsletter.Head Butt! just wants to keep everyone in sync with some of the community news out there and what's the latest going in for YOH, for YOH members past and present and supporters of YOH.
We've launched some publicity for YOH4, but more to be unrolled tonight as well. Look out for it on all channels from Facebook to twitter to the various community channels as well. Btw, if you haven't followed YOH on twitter and on facebook - what are you waiting for?
As you know it's World AIDS Day today. World AIDS Day is marked by the world on the 1st of December. It started back in 1987 to raise awareness of those whom have been affected, and or infected. To this date, a short 28 years after the first HIV infection was diagnosed, close to 40 million have been infected. Today, every single of those 40million infected, is not just a statistic, but also an individual struggle yearning to be told to the rest of the world.
Don't just participate in the activities and the parties, take active action today. The fight against HIV/AIDS is far from over. Know your A-B-Cs of prevention of HIV/AIDS, do not discriminate and care for HIV positive people, know how to protect yourself and your loved ones =) As we always say - Do not hate, Relate...
There are more things coming up for YOH. I'm not going to give too much away, but keep your mouse clicks and ears and eyes for more news unveiled along the Dec. YOH contributed a few articles in the biannual newsletter of AfA called the Act. If you want a copy, just ask it from me. Meanwhile, please keep safe and take care everyone. Tightest hugs. and Happy Holidays
