Today, this very day, 5,500 Africans will die of AIDS. If this isn't emergency, what is? -Bono (U2)

Action is needed for a continent on which five people die every minute from the deadly AIDS virus. aWAKE stands for: AIDS-Working toward Awareness, Knowledge and Engagement. Compiled of articles written by significant speakers on the AIDS issue, ranging from Nelson Mandela to Kevin Max, The aWAKE Project provides poignant stories and compelling statistics, encouraging the reader to care and even take action to battle this horrific crisis.

A significant portion of the proceeds from The aWAKE Project will be donated to Jubilee 2000 and World Vision's Hope Iniative for Africa.
