December 1, Jiji kick-started a seven-day donation drive of kindness in light of World AIDS Day to attract attention to the disease and raise funds for the non-government organization that helps the AIDS-infected.
“Unfortunately, our society is fraught with biases against people living with HIV/AIDS. Some even avoid hugging or talking to infected people. With this drive, we’d like to remind all around that being kind to your fellow man isn’t as hard,” ― comments Yemi Kuti, Jiji PR Representative.
The drive will continue from 1 until 7 December. The idea is to collect as much money as possible and handle them to NiBUCAA, the Nigerian Business Coalition Against AIDS. How much money will be donated to these organizations depends on people and their desire to help. All they have to do is leave likes under this post and share it with their friends. As many likes and shares the post collects, as much money Jiji will give away. EVERY LIKE/SHARE of this post = 1N for charity.
