While shopping in Target today, I went down the office supply aisle to pick up a few random items for my friend. As I strolled past the notebooks, a black and red Moleskine on the wall caught my eye. I recognized the red ribbon on the notebook as the symbol of the fight against HIV and AIDS.
Curious to see why exactly the notebook had a red ribbon, I picked it up and read the description on the back. I know Moleskine has a reputation for partnering with a number of organizations to create themed notebooks but I have never seen one for HIV and AIDS before.
Purchasing a Moleskine notebook is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time but the price tag would usually deter me. I’ve heard nothing but good things about them but once again, they’re more expensive than they probably should be. If I was eventually going to buy one and part of my purchase could go towards the global fund to fight AIDS, now seemed like a good time to commit.
So I bought it! Yay! Hahaha.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that the inside of the notebook contained a few pages of information about HIV and AIDS. In addition to a thank you page for making a donation to the fund, the notebook included pages about what HIV is and how AIDS works. I think education is a necessary step in the fight to stop AIDS so I was glad to find it included.
Now I’m faced with the question of, “what would you do with one (Red) day?” A question posed inside that essentially asks: if you had just one day to raise awareness around the fight against AIDS, what would you do and how would you do it?
While I haven’t written a response to the question yet, I’ll be sure to post it once I do.
the best things usually cost more. Glad you supported, Rocky.
That’s so true. It definitely pertains here. I’m really happy with my notebook and to some degree, I even feel proud to be using it! 🙂 Pretty funny considering it’s something so simple.
Bravo! Excellent for you and for the fight against HIV and AIDS. When things of this nature come up it is so worth the cost to you. Considering the “prices that are paid” by those infected and living with this. I immensely commend you Rocky.
Ah, you picked one up. Cool. Enjoy your new moleskine!
I did! After much debating. Totally worth it though. I can’t put mine down!
