  1. While it doesn’t directly tie in to AIDS/HIV, I have information and a website that could be beneficial.

    Talk show host, Cristina Saralegui has paired up with AARP to to help spread the word about their great benefits!
    Check out http://www.upclosewithcristina.com/video to learn more and make a customizable video! You can have fun with your friends and
    make them on online TV star with Cristina’s video, “Amigos Live!” It’s a blast!

    Also, you can enter to win an all inclusive trip for 2 to Miami to to see the Cristina Saralegui show!
    Definitley check out AARP for yourself or for a relative or client. They’ve got some great benefits, including (but not limited to): Exclusive travel discounts, prescription discounts, retirement planning and free companion membership!

    I hope it’s alright that I commented on your blog — wanted to let them know about the fun video with Cristina and AARP’s great benefits. If you have any further questions,
