Until There's A Cure is an amazing organization that raises funds and awareness for HIV/AIDS through sales of their bracelets. Their funds also go to other HIV/AIDS organizations that provide prevention education, care services and vaccine development. Their dedicated staff are always looking for new ways to reach out to the community and educate them about how to fight this pandemic.

Love their bracelets just as much as what they represent and provide funding for! They've done an awesome job of increasing the different types of bracelets offered, making it a great place to get gifts for any person and have a variety for yourself. I love getting & giving these bracelets knowing that I'm supporting HIV/AIDS research and outreach.

Until There's A Cure is an extremely worthwhile cause to be involved with. Its diverse team and volunteers dedicate countless hours to the development of AIDS research, though many are not personally impacted by HIV/AIDS.

I bought my Until There's A Cure bracelet 15 years ago and still wear it. I wear it not only as an accessory but as a reminder of how much this organization has furthered AIDS research in the last decade.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing it meet particular development goals.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Design a unisex bracelet.

Until There's A Cure is an excellent charity for HIV/AIDS Awareness. They provide great information on how you can help, educate and eradicate this terrible disease. Not only can you donate money you can buy merchandise to help the cause - so you will have great accessories and look good doing it. :) I will continue to be part of this journey with UTAC till this disease doesn't exist anymore.

Until There's A Cure is inspirational in every sense and down to the last staff member. They are tireless in their commitment to finding a cure for AIDS and educating the public to the epidemic that is becoming more global and more deadly. I have the honor of knowing the Executive Director, Ms Nora Hanna. She has been an avid supporter of this cause since one of her best friend's and my brother died in 1992. Best Regards, Jill Alfano
