THE STORY:

UBUNTU EDUCATION FUND wrote -

World Aids Day 2010

Text for Change

HIV does not discriminate. Its effects transcend geographic, racial, and demographic borders. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the US HIV prevalence is a little over 1.1 million people. The estimated South African HIV prevalence rate is 5.7 million people.

Just knowing statistics is not enough. Our Ubuntu Ambassadors are empowered by their ability to educate their communities. December 1st is World AIDS Day, a day dedicated to education about AIDS and the impact the virus has on communities all over the world. Every year we create a special campaign to renew our commitment to combating the 40% prevalence rate in the townships of Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

This year we hope to engage our entire Ubuntu community. We would like to plan an event targeting NY area young adults. The event will take place on a college campus and we will all text to give $5.00 together. supporters in other parts of the country will be encouraged to donate at the same time as well.


Each one of us can impact lives with a single text message! Join us on Wednesday, December 1, 2010 at 12:00pm as we text for change.

Millions of text messages are sent all over the world everyday. What if those text messages could actually raise money for the fight against HIV? It has never been easier to help.

Sending a text can now change lives!

How does it work?

Simply text the word UBUNTU to 20222. You will receive a text confirming your $5.00 donation. Reply with YES and a one-time donation of $5.00 will be added to your mobile phone bill. Want to give more? Great! You can make donations via text up to five times per month… so text away!
