Group Description

This group is now closed. For the 2010 Facing AIDS for World AIDS Day group, please upload your photos here: www.flickr.com/groups/facingaids2010

Worldwide the estimated number of people living with HIV is over 33 million. In the U.S., an estimated over one million Americans are living with HIV.

World AIDS Day, December 1, is an opportunity for us to work together to help reduce stigma around HIV and promote HIV Testing—here’s how you can join us in Facing AIDS in 3 easy steps:

1. Take a Photo
* Download a Facing AIDS sign and tell us why you are Facing AIDS.
* Then take a photo of yourself wearing a red ribbon with your sign.
* Upload it to this Flickr group and/or our Facebook fan page

2. Change your Social Network Profile Status and picture. On December 1 change your social network profile picture to your Facing AIDS photo and your profile status to:
“[Your Name] is Facing AIDS for World AIDS Day. To find an HIV test site, text your ZIP to “KNOWIT” (566948), or visit www.HIVtest.org. Join me and post this to your status today.”

3. Share
* Ask your family, friends, and colleagues to join the Campaign—here’s a flyer you can share.
