Until There’s A Cure
An Organization that Innovated the Non-Profit World with the
First Cause-Related Bracelet
is turning 20!
Thirty years after the first appearance of HIV/AIDS, 25 million men, women, and children worldwide have battled this devastating disease and lost.
TWENTY YEARS ago, two California mothers joined the fight against AIDS out of concern for the future of their children and the community, by establishing the Until There’s A Cure Foundation.
Until There’s A Cure is the backbone to the fight against HIV/AIDS, and what started as a small dream of two women to eradicate the threat of this disease has led to a worldwide mobilization of compassion for our fellow humans battling this tragic epidemic. The Bracelet has been the catalyst for change in the fight, a symbol of hope, and a reminder of the effect that this epidemic has on individuals around the world.
A survivor reflected on the meaning of his bracelet:
“I wear my Until There’s A Cure bracelet in remembrance of my friends who have passed away from AIDS and also to remind myself that I am a survivor of AIDS…I miss my friends who have passed and hope they know I’m thinking of them each time I wear my bracelet.”
With contribution from incredible supporters like YOU the Foundation has reinvested over 22 MILLION DOLLARS back into the fight against HIV/AIDS — through its own extensive awareness programs and via grants to increase the impact of numerous other AIDS organizations which provide care services, prevention education, and vaccine development.
Today the Foundation extends its energy, resources and determination around the world to ensure that understanding, respect and care are the norm rather than the exception. Until There’s A Cure is seeking an AIDS-free generation, but the greatest risk standing in the way is believing HIV is not a problem anymore.
In honor of our 20th Anniversary we are offering the Silver Plate Cuff Bracelet at its original price of $20 for the month of March
Until There’s A Cure is celebrating it’s 20th year!
UNTIL was founded in 1993 with hopes that the Fight against HIV/AIDS would long since be conquered by now, but as long as the war is at hand we’re proud that we’re still able to be here to help the cause.
The Foundation was the first non-profit organization to create and sell a bracelet to raise funds for a cause. The original cuff bracelet was designed by Isabel Geddes of Florence, Italy in 1993. What distinguished our Foundation from others seeking to help those affected by HIV/AIDS is that the primary source of financing for this effort is The Bracelet — a symbolic, simple yet elegant, cuff-style bracelet uniting people to fight HIV/AIDS. The Bracelet was designed to help increase awareness, and to promote compassion, understanding, and responsibility.
The trend was an instant hit!
“Clever celebs…have found a way both to support a good cause and be fashionable. They’ve been spotted sporting Until There’s A Cure bracelets, which raise money for AIDS care, research, and education.”
