What is Give a Day?
Give a Day is a simple and powerful response to the HIV epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa. When we think about the value of a day’s pay, we rarely think of the impact it can have in the hands of people responding to HIV and AIDS at the community level.
For the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s grassroots partners, every dollar matters. Your donation on World AIDS Day (December 1st) combines with that of hundreds of other Canadians to generate transformative change.
