Fashion for A Great Cause

One of the most heart sinking episodes of Project Runway is now one of the most inspirational. When designer Mondo Guerra decided to let the world know his HIV+ status I watched and felt chills up my spine. Having worked for a not-for-profit as an HIV Case Manager a while back I was able to come in contact with some amazing people. I was also able to gain a better knowledge about this deadly disease. This disease doesn't discriminate. It knows no race, religion or sexual orientation. Mondo has taken his HIV status and his fashion sense to bring attention to a great cause. The t-shirt shown is one of Guerra's design and $20 of the proceeds will go to amFAR, an organization that focuses on AIDS research.
