Brain been doing hard thinking :


Came across with this advert ever since it been screening on satellite TVs in the Rapid busses. Interesting! So I’d started googling it to know more about this campaign. And yes I registered to be one of the community at RUUMZ.

Here are some message from the ruumzers…

AIDS. As of 2009, 33 Million people in the world live with HIV/AIDS. That is roughly the total population of Canada. Of that figure, 2.1 Million are children.

Since the illness was defined in the 80’s, many governments, foundations, organizations and individuals have rallied together to raise awareness, educate the public, provide support to those affected and combat the stigma behind the illness.

Is there a cure for AIDS? Sadly, no. Can we do anything to improve the situation? Fortunately, yes.

Together with PT Foundation Malaysia, ruumz is embarking on the AIDSAware Project to raise awareness on AIDS by allowing everyone of us to not only share and spread the message, but to BE a message itself.

The aim of this project is too reduce the spread of the illness and minimize the number of new cases every year. Ultimately, we want to see AIDS alive only in memory.

The AIDSAware project hopes to achieve this aim primarily through “photo messages”, where the public is encouraged to take a photo of themselves or their friends with an AIDS related message on a placard. Examples of these AIDS related placard messages include “STOP AIDS”, “34% of reported HIV cases in Malaysia are in their twenties”, “870 children under the age of 13 is living with HIV in Malaysia” and other messages to encourage safer sex. These messages can be found and downloaded from

AIDSAware is looking to raise 13,000 “photo messages” uploaded on for AIDS awareness in memory of those that have lost their battle with AIDS in Malaysia.

To stand up, be heard and to make a difference, you can.

We can achieve global solidarity, beginning in Malaysia with this project to make a positive contribution in this ongoing battle with AIDS. To do so, it needs all the help and understanding each of us can offer. Let’s start the healing process.

It is bad enough that people are dying of AIDS, but no one should die of ignorance.
