The #ImGladIknow campaign is an HIV empowerment social media project. It is designed to band our community together and show pride in knowing the facts associated with HIV. Knowledge is power! And we should all be celebrated for taking control, knowing our status and learning about treatment options, transmission and prevention options.
Make your own one minute video about a personal experience regarding HIV (you do not have to be HIV-positive) and submit it via YouTube at Helpfw.org and you have a chance to win $$$$$! There will be prizes for the most viewed, the most creative and the most inspiring. First place wins $400 and second and third places win $250!
Make sure to post your video or any content with the hashtag #ImGladIknow to get the message of empowerment out!
