What can we do? – All Should Wear a Red Ribbon and Raise Awareness…

The Red Ribbon is an international symbol of AIDS awareness campaign. It is worn by people around World AIDS Day, and ofcourse all year round particularly to demonstrate care and concern and educate protection about HIV and AIDS, and to remind others of the need for their support and commitment.

Across the World, the Red Ribbon started effort at a “grass roots” level; however, there is no one official AIDS ribbon manufacturer, and everyone who are concern make their own. It’s easily done – just use some ordinary red ribbon and a safety pin….!
