Alecia Tumpap


Founded in 1998, MTV’s “Staying Alive” foundation has become a front runner in HIV/AIDS prevention and education in only 12 short years. Not only does this organization spread awareness, it also funds inspiring individuals with innovative ideas on how to stop the spread of HIV. This is a group of true leaders who have joined together for an amazing cause. I have no set monetary goal, just the goal of supporting the foundation in any way that I can. A few quick and powerful facts:

-An estimated 33.2 million people are infected with HIV worldwide.
-It is believed that 22.4 million of the 33.2 million of infected with HIV are living in the sub-Sahara region of Africa.
-There are about 14,000 new HIV infections that occur every day.
-In 2006, the CDC reported that there were about 1.1 million adults living with HIV in the United States. On 641 thousand were reported in 1996 and 994 thousand in 2003.
