In recognition of World AIDS Day 2011, Cambridge Student StopAIDS invites you to experience what a week of life is like for someone on HIV/AIDS antiretroviral medication. Although these medications have transformed the lives of millions of AIDS sufferers worldwide, it is tough to take so many pills with severe side effects everyday. By joining our challenge, from November 23 to December 1 you get to eat (free!) yummy jelly beans everyday, which represent the medication – but you will also receive daily representative “side effects”… In exchange, we invite you to blog about your experiences over the week and help us to raise funds for our designated charity this year, the Hillcrest AIDS Centre Trust in South Africa (http://www.hillaids.org.za/).
To learn more and collect your jelly beans, please join us at our LAUNCH EVENT on WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 23 from 7PM to 10PM in the CAMBRIDGE UNION SOCIETY BAR! If you have further questions, or would like to take part but are unable to attend the launch, contact us at tt315.
