Review for Protect Yourself 1, Inc, Parkton, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As an entertainer having lost many friends in the music industry due to AIDS at the beginning of the epidemic, I decided to promote AIDS Awareness using music, art and multi-media. In 2004, I founded Protect Yourself 1, Inc. to promote HIV and SDT awareness, education and prevention. Supported by the Board of Officers, the Advisory Board Members, the corporate team and the volunteers; together we forward PY1’s mission. PY1 is a community-based organization operating from Maryland, spreading its urgent message locally and regionally. Also, PY1 is utilizing virtual worlds; Second Life and JokaydiaGRID to network, collaborate and educate globally.
