Please do explain? What is wrong with this organization and their fundraiser? Before you reply--educate yourself!

You are totally ignorant! Karma you @$$! AIDS is not just a homosexual related disease. Straight men, women, and children of all races and religions are affected by this aweful illness. Before you bash this group, learn about them! http://www.aidscommunityservices.com/index.ph...

calm your ass down!!! they didn't say anything about people of particular races or religions or sexual preferences. all they said was "nastys with aids". i think it is pretty common knowledge now that straight muslim women and gay jewish teenagers are all able to contract hiv. it is a terrible illness, but nowadays unless you get stuck with a dirty needle, raped, are born with it or have your partner cheat on you, your own actions make it fairly preventable. can't say that about certain forms of cancer or alzheimers.

that being said, i support any charity fundraiser that is for any disease. i just wish businesses would do more for for diseases that are currently unpreventable.

Jennie you should also educate yourself because if you are in need of a transfusion a loved one will have to sign a waiver stating that the blood is not guaranteed safe and you could be infected with HIV, AIDS or a number of other diseases.

i have educated myself. contracting hiv through transfusions this day in age is very rare. as of 2003, studies have shown that statistically there is between a 1 in 1.4 million and 1 in 1.8 million chance (per unit) of contracting hiv through blood transfusions. add in the fact that most people go through life without ever receiving transfusions, it falls in the category of rare ways to contract it. so does it happen? it could, however, more people on a yearly basis develop alzheimer's & cancer without partaking in behavior that is a known direct cause. i have no issue with fundraisers for hiv & aids....all i am saying is that i wish there was more done for cancer & alzheimer's. i know that there are groups like the american cancer association & the alzheimer's association, but it seems like whenever there is a fundraiser for a specific disease (as opposed to a benefit to collect money for an individual person), hiv & aids are always #1. i don't disagree with continuing aids & hiv research, but i would like to see more done for diseases with no known proven causes.

i know a few people who have hiv & i do hav sympathy for them, however, they all contracted it through risky behavior. i know even more people with different forms of cancer & out of them, only one has a cancer that can be attributed to by their lifestyle (smoking).

So, was the cure for AIDS discovered following this event? I am pretty sure the causes have been known for that last 20 or so years.
