LifeStyles Condoms Will Donate Condoms To The AIDS Healthcare Foundation If You Use This Hashtag
December 1 is World AIDS Day, a time where we all stop to recognize the fight against AIDS. So it's the perfect opportunity for you to help raise awareness bout sexual health and help the fight against AIDS — and one condom brand has just stepped in to make things a lot easier. LifeStyles Condoms has announced a partnership with the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), together they're working on a campaign to "Keep The Promise". The best part? It's really easy for you to help.
Simply share a Facebook status or tweet on World AIDS Day with the hashtag #KTP2016. Easy, right? And every time you do, LifeStyles Condoms will donate a condom to the AHF, up to 50,000 condoms. Condoms are one of the easiest and most effective ways to prevent the spread of STIs, including HIV, but they are not accessible and affordable to everyone. This is a great way to give back.
"LifeStyles is now in the third year of partnering with AHF for the cause and we have donated over 75,000 condoms to AHF since the beginning of our relationship," Carol Carrozza, VP of Sales & Marketing, North America for Ansell, tells Bustle. "The more people who share the status, the better chance of spreading the word and increasing the number of condoms donated to the cause."
Why Condoms Are So Important
Condom use is crucial to prevent the spread of HIV and unwanted pregnancies, and for general sexual health. We need to stop looking at them as a nuisance and focus on them as source of empowerment and health.
"Condoms are tools for equality,” Lovability’s Co-founder, Claire Courtney, tells Bustle. “I'd love for young women to use condoms with the confidence they bring to the classroom (or the soccer field or the chem lab). Consistent condom use is a path to success. My favorite thing about condoms is my career. Not because I sell them, but because condoms give me the control to plan for my future. I'm a better employee, girlfriend, and daughter because I'm taking care of my body first.”
A lot of us are lucky enough to have easy access to condoms— so it's our job to help those who aren't so fortunate. And it only takes a second to help out.
Spread the word and help out. #KTP2016
