thedesignfiles ATTENTION Melbourne cafe owners and baristas ! The good people of the Victorian AIDS council do incredible things in our city, providing support and services to those living with HIV, opening free rapid testing centres across Melbourne which significantly decrease rates of infection, and much much more. YOUR CAFE can support world AIDS day simply by switching to these free coffee cups on Dec 1st! They are free and there is no obligation to fundraise! This is not a fundraising campaign, it is just AWARENESS !! simply swap your usual cups for these free cups from the VAC to help raise awareness on world AIDS day. Email worldaidsday@vicaids.asn.au to get cups sent to you! OR, to make is even easier, if you leave your email address in a comment below my MUM will get back to you and sort you out! (she's a VAC board member person and volunteer / all round superstar). TOO EASY 7h
