We love the amount of activism that’s surrounding this year’s World AIDS Day. The arts aren’t being left out, as rapper and poet Talib Kweli, and poet and writer Bassey Ikpi collaborate on a piece about HIV. Awesome piece by two incredibly talented artists.
To support World AIDS Day, Sprinkles Cupcakes is donating 100 percent of the proceeds from Red Ribbon cupcakes to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. Just look for the red velvet cupcake with a red sugar ribbon to know you’re eating for a great cause.

Today is World AIDS Day! This is the 22nd commemoration of the day, but AIDS was first discovered almost 30 years ago. The disease has claimed the lives of over 25 million people worldwide.
This year’s theme is “Facing AIDS.” We choose to “Face AIDS” by “Rocking the Red Pump.”
Know your status. Get tested. Face AIDS with knowledge and power.

Statistics like these emphasize the need for spreading the message of awareness and prevention. Take a look at Emmy Award Winning AIDS activist Rae Lewis Thornton, speaking to teenagers in the late 90s about HIV, her battle with the disease, and staying protected. It is a message that is just as relevant today, as it was then.

Strong statement there.
