In support of World AIDS Day, Bristol-Myers Squibb in collaboration with the National AIDS Fund launched the third annual "Light to Unite" campaign earlier this week. The campaign is aimed at raising funds for communities across the United States whose HIV/AIDS needs are underserved, and people can go to the Web site www.lighttounite.org to light a virtual candle. Visitors to the site can also educate themselves and others on recent issues concerning HIV/AIDS. Bristol-Myers Squibb will donate $1 for each candle lit through December 31, up to a maximum contribution of $100,000, to the National AIDS Fund. The proceeds will go directly to these underserved communities. "The 'Light to Unite' campaign will provide thousands of people with the opportunity to embrace the World AIDS Day message of support and hope for people living with HIV/AIDS," said Anthony Hooper, president of U.S. pharmaceuticals for Bristol-Myers Squibb, in a statement. "This program further demonstrates the BMS commitment to the fight against HIV/AIDS worldwide by helping to fund the National AIDS Fund's disease prevention and care work in areas where this support is critical." World AIDS Day is dedicated to remembering those who have died from AIDS. (The Advocate)
