WE ARE #GENENDIT
These are words that most of us know. We learned of the virus over 30 years ago and at the time it was unprecedented, unfamiliar, frightening, and seemingly unpredictable. We have come a long way since then and have made great strides to understand, treat, and contain it. It seems we are on the way to moving away from AIDS and HIV, right? It seems to be a problem of the past, but it’s NOT...
DID YOU KNOW?
There are 37 million people in the world currently living with HIV. Each day approximately 3,200 people will lose their lives to AIDS and another nearly, 6,000 will become newly infected with HIV.
Teenagers are the most at risk - 1/3 of all new HIV infections are young people between the ages of 15 and 24. AIDS-related deaths are the #1 cause of death for adolescents in Africa and the #2 leading cause of death for 10-19 year olds in the world. If we continue on the same path, new infections will be even higher than they are already. Who are going to be the leaders, the innovators, and the educators of the future if young people keep dying?
THE GOOD NEWS!
AIDS is 100% preventable. Right now we have the means and the ability to stop the disease from spreading once and for all. We can prevent the loss of future generations. Can you imagine being the ones to do it? Together, we can!
#GENENDIT is an initiative birthed by The Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project (CTAOP), UN Department of Public Information (UNDPI) and UNAIDS. The larger AIDS community recognizes that there is a new window of opportunity, if we act now, to end AIDS by 2030. With the help of CrowdRise we are kickstarting that movement. Your donation supports critical programs that help youth keep themselves safe from HIV/AIDS. By giving any amount today you are not only taking action by giving, but you are also becoming a member of the #GenEndIt generation. Let’s own our potential and see the end of the virus within our lifetimes. Let’s be the generation that #EndsAIDS.
All donations are tax-deductible through CTAOP’s 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor, New Venture Fund.
