How LifeStyles Condoms, AIDS Healthcare Foundation Are Marking World AIDS Day On Facebook

LetsChangeEverything650Sunday, Dec. 1, is World AIDS Day, and LifeStyles Condoms teamed up with the AIDS Healthcare Foundation on social media campaign #LetsChangeEverything in order to raise awareness.

Until midnight Dec. 1, every Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram user who donates their status updates to AIDS awareness and uses the hashtag #LetsChangeEverything will result in one condom being donated to the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, with the total capped at 20,000 condoms.

Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram users can craft their own status updates, or use the following examples provided by LifeStyles:

  • #LetsChangeEverything I’m donating my status to promote #WorldAIDSDay and to change the way the world thinks about HIV and AIDS.
  • I just donated a condom to @AIDSHealthcare to support #WorldAIDSDay #LetsChangeEverything
  • #LetsChangeEverything together. Start by getting tested. To find a HIV testing center near you visit freehivtest.net.

Carol Carrozza, vice president of sales and marketing, North America, for LifeStyles parent Ansell Healthcare, said in a release announcing the #LetsChangeEverything initiative:

Nearly 1.2 million people are living with HIV, and almost one in five doesn’t know they are infected. We are proud to work alongside the AIDS Healthcare Foundation to raise awareness for World AIDS Day, and are grateful to work with an organization that shares our dedication to promoting HIV/AIDS education and prevention.

AHF Senior Director of Public Health Whitney Engeran-Cordova added:

One of our goals is to change the way people view HIV testing and condom use. We hope people begin to view these as routine health practices on par with dental visits and brushing your teeth daily, and also as a way to take pride in and control of your own sexual health.
