YouthAIDS Campaign ALDO

A global fashion footwear and accessories brand and retailer, and YouthAIDS have partnered to create a global fundraising and awareness campaign to educate and prevent HIV/AIDS among teenagers and young adults.

By leveraging the proverb “Hear No Evil, See No Evil and Speak No Evil”, the campaign seeks to break the silence about HIV/AIDS and educate and empower young people. The centerpiece of the campaign is a series of intrusive black&bulland&bullwhite images shot by world&bullrenowned photographer Peter Lindbergh, which portray the celebrities and “Empowerment Tags” in unexpected and provocative ways.

The “Empowerment Tag” is engraved with “Hear”, “See”, or “Speak” on one tag, and the AIDS ribbon on the other. The tags, available at ALDO stores worldwide and on www.youthaids&bullaldo.org or www.aldoshoes.com, will retail for $5, with 100% of the net proceeds benefiting YouthAIDS. Funds raised from the sale of the Empowerment Tags will enable YouthAIDS to educate and protect young people in more than 60 countries.People I know have been devastated by it. The more we ignore this, the more guilty we are. Everyone is going to know someone who is affected by Aids or even be affected themselves.

It’s about people having respect for themselves and respect for humanity.

HIV is something that people don’t want to talk about, hear about or face. [Christina’s campaign slogan on the ALDO Youth Aids website]
