Tomorrow on Worlds AIDS Day, Ticketmaster will make a donation for every ticket sold throughout the day to Lifebeat: Music Fights HIV/AIDS thus encouraging music and live entertainment fans to help fight HIV/AIDS.
Lifebeat is a national nonprofit that uses the power of music and the music industry to help educate young people about HIV/AIDS prevention. Every year, Lifebeat reaches thousands of concert-goers across the country with safer sex education, free condoms, HIV/AIDS prevention information, counseling, and testing. In 2012, Lifebeat conducted HIV/AIDS outreach at concerts and festivals headlined by Madonna, Coldplay, Juanes, Wiz Khalifa & Mac Miller, and Rita Ora.
Held on December 1st every year, World AIDS Day provides an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV. Nearly 34 million people are currently living with HIV and AIDS worldwide, with young people between the ages of 13 and 24 accounting for 1 in 3 newly infected HIV cases in the US. Over 2,600 people aged 16 to 24 are newly infected daily.
We are happy to provide a channel for fans to support to Lifebeat’s cause and help fight against HIV/AIDS.
