“The campaign of “Bloggers Unite for World AIDS Day”
Several days ago, I got email from The BlogCatalog Team about “Bloggers Unite for World AIDS Day” and also read about it in the website of “Bloggers Unite”
This was what I’ve read in that email and in Bloggers Unite’s website :
On December 1st, bloggers from around the world will unite for World AIDS Day 2008. Worldwide an estimated 33 million people are living with HIV. NIDA and AIDS.gov are working with Bloggers Unite because we value and recognize the power of a voice. Multiply that voice by the thousands and the sound of humanity will echo the blogosphere. HIV/AIDS affects too many in our communities to ignore.

If even just 10 percent of our members get involved, we can reach an estimated 4 million blog readers. And if half of our members participate, we can reach 20 million. And if all bloggers participate, we can reach the entire world.
So, I decided to support that campaign by writing this post.
