It’s still Christmas at AID FOR AIDS International (AFAI) thanks to our friends of People en Español who recently sent us a generous donation from their annual holiday sale of beauty products. The proceeds from this annual People en Español event (Sale of Beauty Products), held in December for its employees, go to support a good cause so, to us, this donation is even more valuable as it represents the contribution of the entire team at this prestigious magazine.
Thanks also goes to our friend and collaborator, Kika Rocha, from People en Español, who joined our New Generation Committee last year. Because of her, this valuable connection was made. Donations like this are vital to promote the wo rk being done by AFAI over the past 16 years. As you know, we are facilitating access to treatment for people living with HIV or AIDS in developing countries, HIV and AIDS Education, Prevention Strategies and Tools for Advocacy .
This opportunity reminds us that People en Español has kept AID FOR AIDS International on their radar for some time. Back in 2007, the magazine named our Executive Director, Jesús Aguais, one of the 100 most influential Hispanic Americans in the United States. In 2011,People en Espanol also helped us promote the collection of t-shirts designed by Marc Jacobs to benefit AID FOR AIDS.
To all in People en Español: Thank you and Merry Christmas!
