World AIDS Day Minecraft Buildathon Fundraiser!

About this event

This World AIDS Day, LDNGaymers and London Gaymers are coming together to raise money for the Terrence Higgins Trust, by building the worlds biggest (maybe 🙂 ) virtual red ribbon in Minecraft!

There are an estimated 103,700 people now living with HIV in the UK, and to show solidarity and raise awareness, our ribbon will be built with 103,700 blocks.

It’s a mammoth task, and you can join-in by helping build the Ribbon on the day (with either Minecraft Pocket Edition on any android or iPhone, or with the Windows 10 version, which you can get for free, if you had the old premium version.

You can also join in by sharing our twitch livestream of the build, and contributing towards our fundraising on our justgiving page – www.Justgiving.com/WADGaymers

For info on HIV, please visit www.tht.org.uk or to get a free postal HIV test, go to www.test.hiv
