Call me slow, but I didn’t know until I spotted the ribbon-sellers in Collins St this morning that it’s World AIDS Day today.
There are various causes out there with varying degrees of deservedness (is there a better word to use there?). Some of those that put highway collectors out on weekends in particular I’ve never heard of, and won’t give money to. They’re probably doing good work, but how do I know? My charity dollars go to proven “brands”.
And there are various adoptions of ribbons of various colours. There are so many now that I can’t remember what they’re all for. Yellow… white… blue… what are they again?
But the red ribbon of World AIDS Day is the memorable one, and definitely worthy. I’ve got a red ribbon. Have you?
