AIDS pin-back button made in Toronto, Canada for World Aids Day

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.

This AIDS pin-back button was made for World AIDS Day 2013 in Toronto

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.

Happy New Years button

Happy New Year – what other way would we celebrate than to show a Happy New Years pin-back  button?!

Fun fireworks button!

This is a terrific Toronto button – but there’s amazing fireworks in other Canadian cities as well. Check out your local newspaper to see what is going on, but whatever you plan to do make sure you have a safe ride home! Or you might opt to stay inside and watch on television. Hopefully Rock et Belles Oreilles will have a skit.

Happy New Years button makers style!
