Lifebeat – Dance For Life needs you! World AIDS Day 2012 - This Saturday!

December 1st marks the annual international World AIDS Day where people worldwide unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and commemorate people who have died from the disease. Leading up to the event, along with many organisations, have joined forces with the charity Lifebeat, Music Fights HIV/AIDS, in their bid to reach America’s youth with the strong message of HIV/AIDS prevention spread though our dance music community.

In response to the the harrowing facts that HIV infections are rising among 18-29 year olds and one out of two young people will have contracted an STD by the age of 25, Lifebeat have launched Dance For Life. The campaign is designed to raise awareness of *HIV/AIDS/STD*s to club goers and dance music lovers nationwide on December 1st – World AIDS Day.

DANCE FOR LIFE – Here’s how you can help on World AIDS Day on December 1st.
