World AIDS Day: Eye-Opener

With today being World AIDS Day, I saw coverage on getting tested all over the T.V. with numerous specials on BET & MTV. While doing my daily once-over of the web's top stories, I ran across some information about Kelly Rowland's work with the AIDS virus. Kelly was selected as the youth ambassador for the MTV Staying Alive organization and as a part of her ambassadorship she traveled to South Africa and Tanzania this past summer to spread awareness about this disease and its damaging affects on the community, domestically and abroad. The footage of Kelly's travels was definitely eye-opening and truly brought in to perspective that the AIDS issue is a global one that needs more attention from all of us. Check out the documentary of Kelly's travels in Africa by clicking here.
