New York, NY—Starting on Tuesday, November 27, Gap will present a special edition t-shirt in honor of World AIDS Day.  For every shirt sold online at gap.com, $12.00 will be donated to GMHC, the oldest AIDS service organization in the country.

“New York City continues to be the epicenter of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the United States with more cases than San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington, DC and Miami combined,” said Marjorie J. Hill, PhD, Chief Executive Officer of GMHC.  “With a cure still out of reach, education and support are critical to reducing new HIV infections, and providing care for those living with HIV and AIDS. That is why, in GMHC’s 30th year, we are so grateful for the longstanding generosity and leadership of Gap to help raise much-needed funds.”

For 22 years, Gap has been a sponsor of AIDS Walk New York, benefiting GMHC.  Since 1986, AIDS Walk New York has raised more than $128 million for HIV programs and services in the tri-state area, and has grown into the largest AIDS fundraising event in the world.

Shoppers can purchase the World AIDS Day t-shirt priced at $29.95 at gap.com.
