1. Digital Death There have been all sorts of interesting awareness campaigns happening across the globe to support World AIDS Day. In Australia, Bono helped paint the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge Red, while in the US they’ve been running this very cool donation campaign called “Digital Death” where some of the world’s most famous celebs have stopped posting on Twitter and Facebook profiles until 1 million dollars is donated to BuyLife.org.
