Supporting #GivingTueday402 during World AIDS Day!

Written by Katie Fourney    on November 15, 2020    in
In light of #GivingTuesday402, organized by SHARE Omaha, the University of Nebraska Medical Center, College of Public Health is partnering with Nebraska AIDS Project. Nebraska AIDS Project provides HIV/AIDS services and programs within the region. For Giving Tuesday, which also coincides with World AIDS Day, COPH students, faculty, staff, and alumni will share kindness through creating awareness about HIV/AIDS and the exceptional services offered by NAP. Collaborative efforts will be done through a social media campaign with participants sharing and liking social media posts, using the hashtag #GivingTuesday402. They hope to make it trend on social media for 3 days: the day before, the day of and the day after December 1st.
 
The hope is that through this initiative, our community will gain awareness about HIV/AIDS and be encouraged to support the NAP efforts. Founded in 1984, the Nebraska AIDS Project is a leading AIDS service organization assisting those living with HIV/AIDS and providing education and testing to help stop the spread of HIV/AIDS. Serving the entire state of Nebraska, as well as counties in southwest Iowa and eastern Wyoming, the organization is presently assisting over 400 individuals.
 
The COPH students anticipate this day and public health student, Richard Ngaya, clearly reflects the mood when he said, “I support the kind of work NAP is doing and I highly endorse their commitment to helping the Nebraska community. I look forward to participating using my Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts when the time comes as part of my contribution.” The College of Public Health is excited to support the Nebraska AIDS Project on #GivingTuesday402!
