Hairdressers Against AIDS logo

3. Hair Dressers Against Aids is a global advocacy program that utilizes hairdressers in their unique position as stylists and confidants to become a resource to educate their clients and communities about HIV. The organization is sponsored by The L’Oreal Fondation D’Enterprise in partnership with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Global Business Coalition on HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria (GBC). They are considered to be one of the largest HIV/AIDS mobilization campaigns in U.S. history.

Today, wearing red ribbon themed clothing and accessories, carrying Flip Video camcorders and using video booths, they’ll encourage people to leave messages about HIV/AIDS. These videos will then be streamed to Times Square video billboards as well as the campaign Facebook page and Web site. The campaign encourages all participants to “Use Your Voice, Use Your Power, For A Beautiful World Without AIDS.”

    It is admirable that more and more companies these days get involved in the fight against the century’s most frightening diseases. Their contribution to the medical research are considerable and often bring about practical results. Good job!
