National Aids Trust brings the bling for World Aids Day

Show your support with some sparkle

Tue, 27 Nov 2012 11:31:35 GMT | Updated 4 years today

Every year leading up to World Aids Day (Saturday 1 December), people wear red ribbons as a sign of awareness of HIV and support for people affected by the virus.


Thirty years after the first cases of HIV, the red ribbon is the universal symbol of awareness and support for those living with HIV. The red ribbon was the first ever ribbon symbol, inspiring later versions such as the pink ribbon for breast cancer awareness. World Aids Day is a great time to raise awareness about HIV and challenge misconceptions that people hold, and the red ribbon is a simple and effective way of doing so.


But if a simple ribbon just isn't bling enough for you (madam), check out this beautiful brooch: strictly limited edition, it's made of cast metal and encrusted with red diamantes. It's the ribbon that ain't just for Aids Day, if you know what we mean. You'll be working those sassy sparkles into Christmas and beyond because it looks great on a suit jacket, a coat, a cardie or a little black dress, as countless celebs, from JLS to Little Mix, have already shown…



The National Aids Trust's red ribbon brooch costs £15.99. Click here to buy one 


Fabric ribbons are available from HMV and MAC make-up stores, branches of Virgin Active and many independent LGBT venues and outlets, in exchange for a donation to the National Aids Trust.
