Do you have a personal website, journal, weblog or other kind of frequently updated personal website? If so, why don't you take part in this years "Link and Think"?
Link and Think is an observance of World AIDS Day in the personal web publishing communities, which has been held yearly since 1999. The project involves hundreds of webloggers, journalers, diarists and other personal website publishers, each linking to resources about HIV/AIDS or publishing personal stories about how the AIDS pandemic has affected them.
It's a great way to celebrate World Auds Day, educate yourself, inform those that read your website, remember people lost and make a tiny little difference.
I remember that last year, some people posted stuff well in advance and then on December 1st linked back to it (and to other sites), while others preferred to do it on December 1st. One should be educated and aware of HIV/AIDS and the crisis in sub saharan africa and the risks so many ignore all days of the year. - So be as much of an activist as you feel like!
What i do is that i have a banner to linkanthink up all this month, a banner and link to what i blogged last year (had that all year) and will specifically & solely blog on HIV/AIDS on World Aids Day.
=) i joined the link and think, and i posted one entry about it... the day i signed up... but than i forgot about it after that... oops... =\
but they sent me a reminder, so today (at 2:30 am LOL) i wrote another post. and tomorrow i'll have sumthing to say cause the HIV/AIDS Awareness Team in my school is havng a bakesale to raise money for... umm... i'm not sure lol argh. i made posters to put up for it, and bought some cookies to sell. we're going to hand out information about HIV and AIDS during lunch i think. i hope it turns out well. =) ::looks hopeful:: lol
