The Difference that ‘World AIDS Day’ has Made

Last December 1, the whole world was re-united for the 20th anniversary of the World AIDS Day. Accompanied with this year’s theme, “leadership – from all sectors, including government, but also leaders among individuals and families, communities, non-profits and other organizations.”

All HIV/AIDS victim and even those who do not suffer stand up and participate in this event. Not just for the symbol of red ribbon, not just for the donations and fundraising ideas but also for the voluntary works of all soft-hearted individuals who find time to get involved on this special event. Even bloggers joined this event with the same mission – to make the world a better place. Bloggers found time to make a difference by attempting to harness the power of the blogosphere. This is in cooperation with NIDA and, both of these organizations recognize the leadership of Bloggers Unite. Together with the bloggers, the mission to prevent and stop the spread of HIV/AIDS has been successful.

With around 33 million people infected by HIV, it is really important that the community work together just by being part of the ever growing leaders who fight against the spread of AIDS. Through words, voices and simple actions, HIV/AIDS can be gradually prevented and treated. And this is what happened during the World AIDS Day. A lot of bloggers became a part of this organization. They added a badge to their own blog to show the world that they have joined thousands of bloggers as well with one comparable aim – to answer the call for action to recognize World AIDS Day 2008.
