World AIDS Day site offers an opportunity to giveI ordered a book called The Skeptics Guide to the Global AIDS Crisis a couple months ago, not because I was a skeptic, but rather just to be more informed so that I could inform others with some degree of authority. A couple stats stung me:
World Vision has many excellent programs reaching AIDS orphans around the world
Seed of Hope where my buddy Carl works in South Africa is right in the middle of the epidemic
the life expectancy in Botswana, Africa dropped from 65 years to 40 within 15 yearsI choose to do something about it.
every day 1,500 additional children are infected with HIV
by 2010, it is estimated that there will be 25,000,000 AIDS orphans in the world
