World AIDS Day - Link and Think

Today is World AIDS Day, and U2 Sermons is participating in Link and Think, a chance for blogs to share information on AIDS. I'd like to highlight first the charity to which Get Up Off Your Knees' royalties are going, The AIDS Support Organization in Uganda. You can read how we decided to give them the money in the book FAQ.

If you have followed alerts from DATA (who have just vastly improved their website) or Stop Global AIDS, you've seen references to the importance of full funding for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria. Why not visit the Global Fund today and learn why. You can also donate to the Global Fund online; no amount is too small.

Another opportunity if you're in the USA: Church World Service will help you write the President to ask that the US keep its promise on AIDS funding in the 2005 budget request.

I don't know who these people are, really, but the Global AIDS Prayer Partnership has a very detailed (specifically Christian) prayer guide, day by day, for aspects of the global AIDS crisis.
