I was pretty young when the world first learned more about what exactly HIV/AIDS was. I can remember getting the "talk" in 5th grade and it was just being introduced into the curriculum. I can look back at those days and think holy cow, how far the world has come huh? In a day when it was believed to be a "gay" disease or the potential for survival was so little, we now see people living full lives and for quite awhile. The truth is, it's a very real and very devastating disease that effects millions all over the world. No matter your race, your sexual orientation, your gender, it can happen to any one person at any given time. With anything comes education, and knowledge. Talk to your kids, talk to your partner/spouse, open lines of communication and learn how to keep yourself safe! Get tested regularly and avoid risky behaviors that can lead to exposure.

I chose this theme and name of the kit because like most kids my age (god I feel old!) I can remember the show "Life goes on" and how her boyfriend on the show was Jesse and he had HIV. That show was incredible to break a lot of sterotypes about a lot of things and HIV was one of them. When I thought about making the kit, I thought about the love story of Jesse and Becca, about my friends and family, and how everyone deserves to be loved. No matter what your status is. You are beautiful, no matter what they say.... (cue Christina song)...and it's true. Please do the research, get tested and remember, love everyone and be accepting.

  15. Thank you so much for this beautiful kit and what you said. one of my very best friends is a gay male who calls himself my sister and he truly is that close. He's also HIV positive but due to the advances you talked about he'a been doing well for a long time now unlike the first friend i hasd who was HIV positive a long while ago. As a licensed cosmetologist in Florida for over 40 years We had to take HIV education classes every year in order to renew our license.We tried to help educate people about the facts and fears of aids and HIV. TYSVM HUN :)
