Happy Hump Day!
It's also World AIDS Day, so before you go humping anybody today - be sure to wrap it up! You don't wanna get caught out there if you find yourself in a scene from Raheem DeVaughn's new video...which is HOT by the way....good lawd!
Anyway, I thought about "sacrificing" my blog today and everyday until $1 million dollars has been raised to spread awareness of HIV/AIDS...but then I figured you wouldn't miss me as much as you would...say...Alicia Keys or Kim Kardashian. That "digital death" thing is kinda creepy, but it's for a good cause, so I'll keep my comments to myself :-)
**blink. blink. stare.**
So anyway, here I am :-)
There is so much you can do to can do raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and help stop the spread of this disease. You can work with young people to educate them about HIV/AIDS. You can raise awareness through social media, blogging, etc. You can do community service for those living with HIV/AIDS. Or you can simply say a prayer for those afflicted with this disease around the world - especially in Africa.
But the FIRST thing you should do (if you haven't already) is GET TESTED so you can know your status. It's imperative. It's also free in most major cities and takes no time at all to get your results. Don't be afraid. Be Smart. Be empowered. Education is key, so know the facts about HIV/AIDS. We can make a difference.
What are you doing to honor World AIDS Day?
