Columbus, OH (PRWEB) December 5, 2008
December is AIDS Awareness Month, and Undercover Condoms has partnered with the Columbus AIDS Task Force (CATF) to raise money for the fight against AIDS. Undercover Condoms (http://www.undercovercondoms.com) will donate $1 for each order placed during December directly to CATF for continued support of outreach programs. These programs help provide education, testing, condoms, and health services for those who are living with this deadly disease.
The last comprehensive survey, conducted in 2006 by the Center for Disease Control, estimates that 436,693 people in the United States are living with AIDS. What's more, 36,828 individuals represented newly reported cases. 14,016 Americans died as a result of the AIDS virus in 2006, and while the statistics have shown minor improvements in recent years, continued education, testing and access to preventative contraceptives are essential to decreasing new diagnoses. Despite the best efforts of organizations all over the globe, people are still having unprotected sex and increasing their chances of contracting the AIDS virus. It is imperative that organizations like the CATF have funds to educate and protect people.
Undercover Condoms is a leading online retailer of condoms and other safe sex products, located in Columbus, Ohio. According to Brian Frank, Vice-President for Business Development, "Here at Undercover Condoms we hope that by allowing people to buy condoms online, we can help make condoms more accessible so that there are no excuses for not using them. We provide an affordable, discreet way to purchase condoms, lubes, and other safer sex products directly." Frank claims that online ordering keeps purchases completely confidential for tentative buyers. Orders are shipped in plain packaging, and credit card statements show the parent company name PCPD, LLC. Allowing customers to remain anonymous opens doors to customers who may otherwise feel uncomfortable purchasing these products in their local community. According to Frank, "Undercover Condoms will sell over 2 million condoms in 2008 to customers all around the world."
Undercover Condoms has partnered with the CATF previously, and donated over $1000 from a smaller drive held in December of 2005. Established in 1984, the Columbus AIDS Task Force (CATF) is a full-service, community-based, non-profit AIDS Service Organization providing comprehensive care services, educational programs and an HIV testing program. CATF's mission is to fight the spread of HIV; reduce its transmission, stigma and the resulting discrimination through education and awareness; and provide quality services to individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS. CATF has a full-time staff of 35, approximately 500 volunteers, and a total budget of $3.3 million. CATF primarily serves the seven counties making up the Central Ohio region; however, some of its programs serve Southeastern Ohio and other parts of the state. CATF is a United Way member agency and is nationally recognized as one of the top AIDS Service Organizations in the country. For more information, visit their site at http://www.catf.net.
