Young entrepreneurs use summer vacation for good

Young entrepreneurs use summer vacation for good

This weekend in Sunset Beach in Shelter Island, three young entrepreneurs became philanthropists when they donated all the proceeds from the sale of their home-made seashell necklaces to AID FOR AIDS. Iris, Gabrielle and Shania collected all the shells themselves, and then made the necklaces, which they sold to passerby all of Saturday morning. Thank you so much to these three wonderful kids for their effort and for keeping AID FOR AIDS on their minds during their summer weekend at the beach.

AID FOR AIDS Mourns the Loss of AIDS Activists and Researchers, Including Joep Lange, Leading HIV Expert

AID FOR AIDS Mourns the Loss of AIDS Activists and Researchers, Including Joep Lange, Leading HIV Expert

“Today is a day of sadness and deep grief” says Jesus Aguais, Founder and Executive Director of AIDS for AIDS.  Joep Lange, Dutch scientist and former President of the AIDS Society, has been a world leader in HIV treatment research for over twenty years.  Along with Dr. Lange, more than 100 other representatives, leaders and experts in the AIDS field have been permanently silenced by this act of terror.  Those who worked to save lives have lost theirs as a consequence of this heinous act.  This terrible loss not only puts a cloud over those gathered in Melbourne, Australia for the International AIDS Conference, but over all activists, Health Care Providers, Policy Advocates and researches in the HIV field.

Among the thousands of DJs, dancers, and rainbow flags, you may have spotted the AID FOR AIDS’ team making its way down 5th Avenue, boasting a float full of spirited performers and banners with this year’s slogan – “Take Off the Mask.” With this slogan, we aimed to stress the importance of getting tested, knowing your status and honoring your real…
