Columbus, OH (PRWEB) November 29, 2004 -
Â Undercover Condoms, a Columbus, Ohio based online condom retailer, announced plans to donate $1 from every order placed in December to the Columbus AIDS Task Force. This announcement is part of a new awareness program that will run alongside an informational section of the http://www.undercovercomdoms.com/ website. The kick-off to this drive will be December 1, which has been officially declared, World AIDS Day. This is a day that celebrates the progress that society has made raising funds for research and education, and creating an AIDS aware society that is better prepared to fight this terrible disease. Events as diverse as concerts and candlelight vigils have been scheduled worldwide to raise awareness.
Despite the best efforts of countless organizations and non-profit groups, AIDS continues to be spread through sexual intercourse. AIDS claims over 8,000 lives worldwide every day. Although AIDS education and awareness programs have helped tremendously, these numbers still show room for improvement. According to UNAIDS estimates for 2004, there were 35.7 million adults and 2.1 million children living with HIV at the end of 2003, and during the year 4.8 million new people became infected with the virus. Around half of all people who become infected with HIV do so before they are 25 and are killed by AIDS before they are 35.
Many businesses and individuals have committed their time and energy to helping the AIDS cause, and many more donate money to help in AIDS research and education. Undercover Condoms (http://www.undercovercondoms.com/) chose to get involved as a corollary to World AIDS Day. ÂWe promote safe sex year-round by providing a simple, inexpensive way for people to purchase condoms, but we want to raise the bar even higher,Â stated Brian Frank, Marketing Coordinator for Undercover Condoms. ÂWe are in a position to make a difference in the community, and in our own way, the world. Funds for research are difficult to come by, and we believe that everyone should do their part.Â
