Today is World AIDS Day - a good time to remind us there are over 35 million people across the globe who are living with HIV and AIDS. Awareness and education are the best tools for prevention, and MTV's Staying Alive campaign and Foundation are playing their part by empowering and encouraging young people in their efforts to educate their communities on HIV prevention.
The Staying Alive Foundation firmly believes the power of HIV prevention lies in the hands of the younger generation and supports them through grants that assist them with projects in the US and around the world on HIV/AIDS education and prevention. Staying Alive's ambassador, rapper/singer Travis McCoy, has a motto of "Each one, teach one," emphasizing the impact one person can have on this global issue when they educate themselves and then share their knowledge with others.
Inspired by a trip to South Africa, India and the Phillipines to see some of Staying Alive's grantees' projects in action, Travis wrote a single entitled One At A Time to encourage others to take action. All proceeds from the sale of this track go to fund new projects with the Staying Alive Foundation. Download the song here, check out the video below and read this recent interview with Travis to learn more about his work with the Foundation.
