World AIDS Day

From the offical website: The 1st of December, World AIDS Day, is the day when individuals and organisations from around the world come together to bring attention to the global AIDS epidemic. 2008 marks the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day. Whilst we have come a long ways since 1988, there is still much more to be done.

Everyone is doing their part, be it lighting the Space Needle in Seattle in honor of Project (RED) or donating a few cents from each delicious warm beverage, and Better World Books is no different.  A woman who is literate in Africa is twice as likely to avoid AIDS. So when you see that we’ve shipped over 1,000,000 books to Africa and are the primary source of funding for Books for Africa, you know that we’re not just talking about reading great books, we’re talking about changing lives.

Tell a friend about World AIDS Day, because the disease may be getting less press, but it’s no less pressing.
