As said yesterday, with my short term plan, today is World AIDS day. Time to reflect on the 33 million aids/hiv infected people on the world. To be aware that every 12 seconds someone gets infected with hiv. To know that AIDS is the biggest threat for our children because every minute two children get infected with hiv and every minute a child looses his parents because of AIDS and at this point we have 15 million AIDS orphans (which is almost the poplulation of Holland).
I want to be aware, pay attention and participate on this theme, that involves everyone. To participate I thought I could make sell some Christmas stars for the Aids Foundation. Because 5 euro saves a babies from being born without hiv while the mother is infected, I'll sell some sets of stars for 5 euro (I'll pay the sendingcosts). So buying a set, is as saving a child.
I already sold 5 sets (I don't even have that amount of stars yet..) which is 25 euro for the Aids Foundation. But please, please follow my example. Like Miekk's (already selling, so buy there some beautiful fabric hearts!!!!!!!) and Hutsefluts (later this week) are doing! Check their blog to buy!!!! But you too.. sell something! Save a baby and get great handmade stuff (for Christmas)!!Even tomorrow, or the day after, or after.. It's never, never to late..
