Good cause, weird idea

In honor of World AIDS Day (December 1), someone created the wedding gown pictured above by stitching together 12,500 condoms. I'm glad my wife opted for something more traditional, but this is a very creative method for raising awareness of AIDS and its impact.

Here's a less dramatic means of raising awareness, sharing facts from the World AIDS Day web site:

Around forty million people are living with HIV throughout the world - and that number increases in every region every day. In the UK alone, more than 60,000 people are living with HIV and more than 7,000 more are diagnosed every year. Ignorance and prejudice are fuelling the spread of a preventable disease.

World AIDS Day, 1 December is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV and AIDS. This year, it's up to you, me and us to stop the spread of HIV and end prejudice.

Wikipedia has more information about the history of World AIDS Day, and the WAD site has ideas if you want to take action against AIDS.
