From the designer tweec:
THOK Awareness is a project that I put together consisting of a metal artisan and a cable that is made to raise awareness of AIDS
The metal artisan shows a mix of the red ribbon and a heart, with the base being white so it's universal and would fit most board and set
AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) is the name used to describe a number of potentially life-threatening infections and illnesses that happen when your immune system has been severely damaged by HIV.
There's currently no cure for HIV, but there are very effective drug treatments that enable most people with the virus to live a long and healthy life.
With an early diagnosis and effective treatments, most people with HIV will not develop any AIDS-related illnesses and will live a near-normal lifespan.
We're making this project for the purpose of raising awareness of AIDS, and to help people infected with AIDS treat their infection through donating our profits to red.org
The World AIDS day is celebrated every year on the 1st of December, therefore, we decided that it would be best to start the GB on the 1st of December
