Artist Sage Vaughn for (CHOCOLATE) RED

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

December 1 is World AIDS Day & Giving Tuesday.  In 2002, more than 1500 babies were born with HIV every day. Today, that number is just over 600. That’s great progress, but it’s not enough. With just two pills that cost as little as 30 cents a day, we can help prevent the transmission of HIV from pregnant moms to their babies, increasing the number of children born HIV-free. Every generation is known for something. Let’s be the one to deliver an AIDS FREE GENERATION.Each purchase of a (GIRL)RED and (CHOCOLATE)RED deck can provide more than 23 days of life-saving medication. Here is Sage Vaughn collab with Chocolate Skateboards.
