Free Donation for World AIDS Day

Bristol-Myers Squibb have set up a website with the US National AIDS Fund (financial profile)and have pledged to donate $1 to AIDS research every time someone goes to there and "lights" a candle.

Bristol-Myers Squibb is one of the large drug manufacturers with its hand in AIDS treatment medication. The cost of the necessary medications can be out of reach for many (or most) people who need them. It is so expensive that recent articles indicate the cost of these drugs to be as high as 6% of Botswana's national budget.

It is time that those companies who benefit from this terrible epidemic start helping find a real way to assist those who suffer.

Please forward this to your family, friends and contacts.

It only takes a second to raise a dollar but millions are needed.
