Having two people very close to me as HIV Pos,I buy the bracelets for family and friends. It is such an easy nice way to help the org and get the word out. This org does a great job and should be supported. They will have my continued support.

These bracelets come in many colors and are so unique that people always ask where they are from and what are they for. Through their jewelry UTAC is really raising HIV and AIDS awareness. They keep me up to date with frequent emails about what they are doing in the community and how one can get involved.

I am very pleased with the work that Until there is a cure does. It is clear that they work very hard to get information about HIV/Aids out to others. I personally have a borther who is HIV+. I wear my bracelets proudly to support him and am very happy to know that there is an organization committed to finding a cure and informing the public.

The bracelets that I have purchased I have given out to many other people to make them aware of this worthy cause. I purchased a silver bracelet for myself that I love and everyone notices it and asks me where I got it from. It gives me the chance to speak about the efforts of this wonderful organization. Thank you for all your efforts!

The bracelets I received are very beautiful and the foundation works to come out with new products that help to sustain other countries and provide an income for those less fortunate. Also, the funds go toward a great foundation to do research in order to find a cure to one of the world's worst diseases. It also provides educational services and I constantly have people asking me where I got my bracelet from and want to know more about it.

Receiving periodic emails to update me on the progress of the research being conducted for HIV/AIDS and also information about the products that they offer and where they come from and what purpose they serve in giving back to the community.

My husband died from complications of HIV/AIDS in 2008. Our daughter read about this organization and bought a bracelet to honor her dad. Now all three of my daughters and myself wear a bracelet. I have gotten quite a few comments on the bracelet. I tell people what it is for and why I wear it. I am very glad that the money earned goes to AIDS education and research.

If one less family has to endure loosing a loved one to this virus then their work is a success. It helps to know I am doing even a small thing to make a difference.
