...Created in partnership with @radical.media, the (2015)QUILT lets people express their support for the fight against AIDS. Anyone can create a quilt panel by using the simple online tool and then share it with their friends and family through Facebook, Twitter and Google+. Before uploading their panel, users will be asked to make a specific commitment that will help bring about the beginning of the end of the epidemic. Options include:
- Join ONE (www.one.org), invite your friends to join ONE and together press policymakers to act.
- Buy one (RED) gift this holiday (http://www.joinred.com/red/#shopred).
- Make your own commitment to help deliver an AIDS free generation by 2015."
