On December 1st in recognition of World AIDS Day 2008, Liberated Muse Productions will take part in this historic day of awareness. We encourage you to take part by adding your voice through your own blog on our Liberated Muse social network and by commenting on our blog post for that day. Together, we can reduce the stigma of this pandemic through our words, voices and actions.
Other Ways To Participate
As a blogger, you can help lead this mission. Some of you may already be doing this, so tell your story. Write about it and share it with NIDA, AIDS.gov and the Bloggers Unite community. Even if you are not a blogger, you can be involved. Here are five ways you can further the cause and elevate the voice of HIV/AIDS awareness online:
(1) 'Be-Friend' NIDA and AIDS.gov on MySpace to stay connected to the issue and those working within it. Learn the link about HIV/AIDS and drug abuse by viewing NIDA’s online Webisodes, a video series about how non-injection drug use can lead to increased risk behavior, and can change lives forever. Once you learn the link, be sure to send the link to friends and family.
(2) Visit the AIDS.gov blog and read how people are using new media tools in the response to HIV/AIDS.
(3) Join the AIDS.gov Facing AIDS World AIDS Day Campaign and take a picture of yourself wearing a red ribbon and use that photo on your social network, blog, or Web site to help eliminate stigma and recognize World AIDS Day online. Also, add a badge to your website or blog.
(4)Blog and read about the issue. Then be sure to share your posts with Bloggers Unite or on Twitter using the tag #WAD08.
(5) If you are on Facebook, add links to your Facebook status where people can read information on this day on how they too can get involved.
