Why Give a Day?
Give a Day to World AIDS is a simple and powerful response to the global HIV epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa.
According to UNAIDS, there are 36.7 million people in the world living with HIV. More than two-thirds of them live in sub-Saharan Africa. Extraordinary progress has been made to address the epidemic in recent years, yet causes and solutions to the epidemic are interwoven with many other global social concerns such as extreme poverty, hunger and gender inequality.
Give a Day is a grassroots Canadian campaign. It challenges each Canadian to recognize World AIDS Day on December 1 by giving one day’s pay to support two Canadian organizations responding to the crisis, each with its own focus and excellent record of success in responding to HIV.
Through Give a Day, communities in Canada mobilize resources for communities far from them and we work together every day towards a world without AIDS. Your support for The Stephen Lewis Foundation and Dignitas International will have a profound lifesaving impact on individuals and communities devastated by the effects of HIV & AIDS.
