“World AIDS Day is an opportunity for people to come together worldwide in order to fight against HIV and AIDS. It takes place every year on December 1, and was first observed in 1988. World AIDS Day also shows support for people living with HIV, along with remembering those who died from an AIDS-related sickness. It is observed by all members of the United Nations.

There are currently 38 million people worldwide who have the virus, and over 35 million people have died from HIV or AIDS.However, there is no cure for, and unfortunately there is a lot of stigma surrounding the illness.

The red ribbon became an international symbol for the epidemic in 1991.”

Testimonials

Sip & Share Wines

Shades of Commerce walks the talk of support and collaboration! They used their social platforms and influence to promote our winery and even did a social media push for our Wines for Mother's Day!! All because they believe in circulating Black dollars in Black communities! They've also put their money behind their message by purchasing our wines for themselves! Their continued encouragement, support in sharing and being a true partner in economic growth and unity is outstandingly phenomenal!! We, at Sip & Share Wines, are abundantly grateful!

All Access Golf

Tiffany has been a great supporter for All Access Golf. She has attended our events which allowed her to learn about the golf industry and network with those in it. Tiffany’s presence also adds value. Her exposure to various industries makes her a resource for our event attendees.

All Access Golf, CEO

Absolute Coffee

Shades of Commerce has been a great collaborative partner both in the community and online. Tiffany has worked arduously to promote my business by serving our local fire department breakfast and coffee bought from my store. Additionally, Tiffany is kind enough to share posts and information of my store with her Instagram followers. It has been a real pleasure to work with someone so dedicated to local businesses and the neighborhood supporting them.
