Not that we are recommending cheating in school, but you could make a math pin-back button with the answers to the test. We do, however, recommend making magnets to post that big F on the test when you do get caught! Make your own pi button or other math button, and hopefully you will have the information memorized in time for the test…. 3.14159….?

Colourful button

Some people made a bunch of buttons, including this colourful button, from a poster for sex workers in Toronto, Canada.

This AIDS button reads “No Questions No Answers” and shows the red AIDS ribbon.

People come up with lots of creative and innovative ways to raise awareness and money to fight AIDS, and making buttons is just one of many ways. Friends for Life does a yearly bike ride all the way from Toronto to Montreal!

Get a head start for World AIDS Day 2014, or fundraising campaigns throughout the year, by making some HIV pin-back buttons.

AIDS button – HIV button

HIV / AIDS facts you might not know, but need to:

* 1/4 of people who have it don’t know. This is why getting tested is important.

* 1/4 of people who have it are female. Stereotypes about it being a “mans disease” are false.

* 1/5th of people get it through heterosexual contact. This is why homophobic ideas about “who is infected” are just plain wrong.

HIV pin-back buttons are a good way to generate money for programs, and they also help raise awareness.

Come back next week for another HIV button from the same campaign.
