Dear Equitas Health Family –
Every year on December 1 – World AIDS Day – people across the globe recommit to the fight against HIV, show support for those living with HIV, and remember those taken from us by AIDS-related illness.
This year World AIDS Day falls on Giving Tuesday, a day that Americans have come to use to kick-off holiday season generosity. While our hearts and minds are occupied with remembering those we have lost to AIDS-related illness, it would be a detriment to those we serve if we did not acknowledge that your Giving Tuesday contributions each year are critical to the work of caring for those living with HIV and ending the epidemic.
Your contribution honors those who live on in the treatments they helped develop.
During the first two decades of the AIDS crisis, people living with HIV volunteered by the thousands for clinical trials they would not live to benefit from. We owe them a debt of gratitude for the antiretroviral treatments that have made HIV a manageable chronic illness.
When you donate to an AIDS Service Organization, like Equitas Health, on World AIDS Day, you ensure that the legacy of those we’ve lost—life-saving treatment—reaches those with lives left to live.
Your contribution helps bring modern HIV treatment to those who need it.
Your contribution helps bring prevention resources to those left out or kept out of traditional healthcare settings.
You are our partner in this fight to stop HIV. Whether through advocacy, volunteerism, philanthropy, or spreading the world that Undetectable equals Untransmittable, we are grateful for all you do to build a world in which HIV cannot thrive. We look forward to gathering with you, virtually, at World AIDS Day events across the state this week. Together we will remember, support, and unite. We have come this far together, and only together will we prevail.
