Today is World AIDS Day, and as promised, the Twitter feeds of celebs like Alicia Keys (we won’t mention K.K.) have gone silent to raise $1 million to help those suffering from the impact of the disease.
Also in honor of today, Elton John is guest editor of The Independent; Walgreens is launching its collaboration with the organization Greater than AIDS to increase awareness about the disease and offer in-store services such as HIV testing; and Hairdressers Against AIDS kicks off in the U.S. L’Oréal and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) joined forces to encourage hairdressers to use that one-on-one time in the salon as a starting point for a conversation about the disease.
The NBA has also partnered with Greater Than AIDS, with a PSA attached above.
