“You’ve Got This”—Video Campaign for Newly Diagnosed HIV Patients

“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope”. –Martin Luther King, Jr. This is the belief of Healthline as it recently partnered with the Timothy Ray Brown Foundation to launch a video campaign encouraging hope and giving advice to recently diagnosed HIV patients.

The campaign, entitled “You’ve Got This”, requires individuals to upload their videos to YouTube in which they try to inspire hope and provide useful advice to the recently diagnosed. They are encouraged to speak from the heart as they tell their own tales of when they were first diagnosed; their fears, reasonable and unreasonable; the best advice they can think to give someone recently diagnosed; and what helped them learn to cope.

Global Youth Connect Wine Tasting, a Piquant Event

On Thursday, September 19, 2013 the Global Youth Connect is hosting a wine tasting to celebrate its recent success implementing human rights programs in Bosnia and Rwanda this summer—so just for this, we can "mix" children and alcohol.

As if wine tastings weren’t full-bodied enough, the proceeds to GYC give the event an even sweeter finish. GYC is an organization that advances global social justice by encouraging young adults to become human rights activists. To empower these young adults, the charity offers cross cultural human rights workshops as well as opportunities to engage in volunteer service. GYC aligns with various grassroots, NGOs, policy makers, and other stakeholders to sustain international human rights activism.

ABSOLUT Lunch Break!

Ok, free things are lucky, but we said this is the the luckiest 13th, and here's why: The Jillionaire and Walshy Fire will be DJ-ing the event.

The lunch party is free, however, if you can, take those couple of bucks you would'a spent on lunch and donate them to the on-site reps of the Food Bank for NYC--just $1 will feed five New Yorkers in need.

Tomorrow, join us for lunch and dancing, and take back a great story to your office (or class). Remember to RSVP, since that's the only way to reveal the location!!
