This Sunday, December 1st, make sure you take a look up and around your city. Once again, iconic landmarks around the world are turning (RED) for World AIDS Day. 46 buildings will cast red lights across 12 cities this year, incorporating new partner cities such as Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and new partner landmarks such as the Alvin Ailey Theater and Bank of America Tower in New York City. Other incredible participants include the GM Renaissance Center in Detroit, the Hearst and Gehry Buildings in New York, and the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada.
This World AIDS Day, on December 1, cities, organizations, people and brands including – Jonathan Adler, Theory, Kidrobot, Live Nation Entertainment, Sir Richard’s Condom Company, Fab.com, Coca-Cola, Priority Records (a division of Capital Music Group), Belvedere Vodka, Beats By Dr. Dre and Starbucks – are coming together to invite people all over the world to BE (RED) this holiday season.
Today, it costs as little as 40 cents a day for two antiretroviral pills which can prevent the transmission of HIV from mother to baby. Still, 700 babies are born with HIV every day. Though that’s roughly 200 less than in 2012, we can get that number near zero in the next few years. This World AIDS Day, (RED) and its partners invite the world to:
