We are thrilled to announce that the Give a Day 2010 campaign has raised over half a million dollars on behalf of people affected by HIV! This is a great time to celebrate and reflect on all that happened in 2010.
There was even greater energy, enthusiasm and momentum for the Give a Day movement this year. We saw the concept of “global solidarity and local solutions” put into action as communities in Canada came together in creative ways to show their strong support and solidarity for communities in Africa that are affected by HIV. We kicked off the campaign by hearing former Prime Minister Paul Martin address a sold-out crowd from the legal, medical and business communities, urging them to join the Give a Day movement. We were gratified to see how this endorsement inspired new campaigns and donations and gave us the opportunity to bring the idea of Give a Day to a wider audience.
We thank all those who participated in the Give a Day campaign. The donations received have been instrumental in allowing The Stephen Lewis Foundation and Dignitas International to continue their remarkable work in responding to the HIV and AIDS pandemic at the grassroots, facilitating access to life-saving drugs and by supporting community-based initiatives.
We are already hard at work preparing for Give a Day 2011. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be a part of this growing movement! We can give you information on how to launch a campaign in your workplace or how you can join us as a volunteer.
