Aid for AIDS
Written by Bwog Staff
Today is World AIDS Day, and people are out on College Walk to tell you about it. The Student Global AIDS Campaign have set up a communal art project/fundraiser, to represent the entire HIV virus genome out of tiles. The virus has almost 10,000 base pairs, so they’re aiming to create a representation using that many tiles. You and a date can stop by Low Steps today and tomorrow to donate three tiles (definitely not a divisor of 10,000 but who’s counting) to the project at a cost of $1.
They’ve also planned a benefit event tonight, featuring our own Jeffery Sachs, founder and executive director of AIDS International Jesus Aguis, and live music and dance performances.
