I have worn the same bracelet everyday for 17 years & it still looks fabulous. The best money ever spent supporting a cause. I can't imagine not wearing it & continue to get compliments because of its timeless style.

World Aids Day is less then a month away! The Timing is perfect to spread the word of this organizations cause. They are celebrating 20 years of spreading compassion, knowledge, funding, remembrance, and perseverance Until there's A Cure. HIV Aids has gone from being an invisible silent killer, to becoming more manageable, though developed expensive treatments, it remains a complex virus but progress is gaining way. Prevention education is the most economical means and using a tool is impactful. Give a gift, make a donation or purchase a bracelet to support this cause, remember those near and dear that have past and remind those to protect themselves today. The bracelet you buy could further impact an artisan living with HIV Aids and allows them to provide such simplicities in their communities as shelter, food, water, medication & education.

I became aware of UTAC in the 90's, when I was given one of their original bracelets. I wear the bracelet almost daily, as a reminder of family and friends who were lost to AIDS or are still battling the disease. Through their celebrity endorsements in magazines and their annual fundraising events with the San Francisco Giants, plus sales of bracelets, they continue the fight to find a cure. UTAC has survived tough economic times by being lean and innovative. I know through the work of great employees, countless volunteers and dedicated Board member, UTAC will continue to prosper.

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.

I lost my uncle in the early 1990's to AIDS complications, since his death our family has never been the same. I have recently been trying to find out more about his life and the great man he was, in my research I have come across many nonprofit groups and this one (Until There's A Cure) struck me as unique and unwavering in their attempt to bring attention back the the HIV/AIDS epidemic in our world today.

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

the quality information they provide about events relating to AIDS benefits as well as in their apparel such as their bracelets of which I own two and have not taken my most recent off in several months.

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

market the name more and get more publicity to their work.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their compassion

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderful

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

raise an increased awareness about the ongoing issue of HIV/AIDS in the world

Ways to make it better...

their website was more clear

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

a lack of funding and a lack of public awareness

One thing I'd also say is that...

I can't stress enough the importance of this group to the cause!

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.

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.

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

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.
