Together We're Stronger

A public service announcement via Until There’s A Cure®.

I’m dedicating today’s blog to an important topic that needs attention. 
Did you know that nearly thirty years into the HIV/AIDS epidemic, there is still no simple solution to breaking the cycle of HIV? Many have been infected with HIV, more than 2.7 million each year to be exact. 
Until There’s A Cure® is a national organization dedicated to eradicating HIV/AIDS by raising awareness and funds to combat this pandemic.
With the help of celebrities, partner corporations, volunteers, and passionate supporters, this organization serves to fund prevention education, care services, and vaccine development, and to increase public awareness of AIDS, using The Bracelet as the tool. The Bracelet serves as a bridge to unite people to fight HIV/AIDS, and helps to increase consciousness, compassion, understanding, and responsibility.

Until There’s A Cure is committed to:
  • Funding innovative programs that promote AIDS awareness and prevention education.
  • Providing financial support for care and services for those living with AIDS.
  • Supporting and advocating for AIDS vaccine development that offers the best hope for reducing the spread of HIV.

A Public Service Team United
Celebrities from the entertainment industry and the sports world wear The Bracelet. Major magazines, including Voque, Maxim, Cosmopolitan, InStyle, Us Weekly, ESPN Magazine, and many others generously donate space for the PSAs.

Over the past 19 years , UNTIL has reinvested over $22 million dollars in programs and grants, providing money to African villages ravaged by HIV infection, community clinics supporting care and comprehensive testing programs, and vaccine advocacy groups dedicated to research and medical development.

Their jewelry line has grown from The Bracelet, our original cuff-style bracelet, to include over 25 styles. Many pieces are handmade in Africa by HIV-positive women. The projects we support in Africa not only employ but EMPOWER the women, enabling them to better care for their families and give back to their communities. 
They also donate a portion of the proceeds to help build hospitals, train nurses, and provide medical devices and other care services.
