Annie Lennox will celebrate the SING Campaign’s second anniversary on 1st December by auctioning five very special prizes on eBay.
One of these is the once-in-a-lifetime chance to receive a phonecall from Annie, who will have a chat and then perform a song to you, live, down the phone! The event will be filmed, put on DVD, signed and sent to the winner!!
Other prizes include handwritten lyrics, autographed SING merchandise and a signed lithograph of Annie.
Annie launched the SING campaign on 1st December 2007 – World AIDS Day – to be a voice for women and children affected by HIV.
The money raised from this auction will help prevent the spread of HIV in South Africa, where 1,000 people die from AIDS-related causes every day. Moreover, approximately a third of all pregnant women there carry the virus, and without intervention, a third of their children will be born with HIV. Unless they get diagnosed and treated, half of all children with HIV die before their first birthday.
But it doesn’t have to be like this. With appropriate intervention and treatment, these babies can be born HIV free. The SING campaign is trying to ensure that every single person living with HIV has access to treatment and support.
Since 2007, SING has raised over $2 million, and helped over 100,000 people affected by HIV in the Eastern Cape of South Africa – but there is much more work to be done. So please head over to the SING website and sign up to the mailing list to be informed when the auction goes live – or check back here on 1st December for all the details and links to bid!
