World AIDS Day 2010 : Celebrities die from HIV

December 1st, marks World AIDS Day! It is a day of recognition of the impact that HIV/AIDS has on the health of our world.  Last year I did a post that gave some tips on how to protect yourself and others.  It also gave some background on the date!  Check it out HERE!

I decided to provide you all with a list of centers that will be providing FREE HIV/AIDS testing on today and some that give regular free testing.  Most places give the oral test and provide you with results in 20 minutes.  Easy, Quick, and Painless.  Here are the centers below for Atlanta, Memphis, Nashville, New York, L.A., Miami, Washington, D.C. and more!!!

During my search I ran into something quite interesting.  I think this campaign is neat.  Some celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Swizz Beats, Elijah Wood, and Alicia Keys decided to take "death pictures" to support a campaign for HIV/AIDS awareness.  Check the site out HERE to see more pics!!
