The (2015) Quilt: Fighting for an AIDS Free Generation


Every generation is known for something.

Let’s be the one that delivers an AIDS FREE GENERATION by 2015.

Every day 1,000 babies are born with HIV.

By 2015, that number could be near zero. Add your voice to (RED) and ONE’s digital (2015)QUILT – pictures and pledges from people all over the world who are joining the fight for an AIDS FREE GENERATION by 2015.

Join Hugh Jackman, Coldplay, Josh Groban, Jane Lynch, and manyothers on the (2015)QUILT.

The beginning of the #endofAIDS starts with you. Get started at http://2015quilt.com

The beginning of the end of AIDS 

We are so close.

In 1987, a quilt created by The Names Project Foundation covered the National Mall in Washington, D.C., memorializing those we lost to AIDS. Today, we stand at the threshold of another defining milestone in this fight: by 2015, we should be able to provide treatment to the millions more who need it, drastically reduce new infections, and virtually end the transmission of HIV from mothers to their babies. 1.4 million HIV+ pregnant women need access to treatment – treatment that only costs about 40 cents a day.

It can be done. But we need your help to get there.

Join millions of existing ONE and (RED) supporters. Add your panel to the (2015)QUILT. Make a pledge to do more and a thank you gift will come your way. Our friends, THE KILLERS have once again recorded a Christmas song for us— their 6th song for the cause. Add your pledge to the (2015)QUILT and receive one of (THE KILLERS) RED Christmas songs for free.

 

The beginning of the end of AIDS starts with you.

THE FACTS DON’T LIE.
HERE’S WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP.

AN HIV+ PREGNANT WOMEN CAN GIVE BIRTH TO AN HIV FREE BABY.

98% OF MOTHER-TO-CHILD HIV TRANSMISSION INCIDENTS ARE PREVENTABLE

YET, MORE THAN 1,000 BABIES ARE BORN EVERY DAY WITH HIV

AND HALF OF CHILDREN BORN WITH HIV WILL DIE BEFORE THEIR 2ND BIRTHDAY WITHOUT TREATMENT

SO WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO VIRTUALLY END THE TRANSMISSION OF HIV FROM MOTHERS TO THEIR BABIES BY 2015?

WE NEED TO GET 1.4 MILLION HIV+ PREGNANT WOMEN ON MEDICATION – MEDICATION THAT COSTS AROUND 40 CENTS A DAY

IT’S DOABLE.

THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF AIDS STARTS WITH YOU.
