AIDS Awareness Ribbon

The Matchbox Macro Collection.

 

I collected 63 tiny objects and put them all in a matchbox. This is one of them.

 

World AIDS Day is December 1st each year and many people wear the Red Ribbon to show support, though many wear one all year round. It was the first ribbon representing a cause and many have followed, perhaps the most well known being the pink ribbon for Breast Cancer Awareness. Rubber wristbands seem to be the norm nowadays.
