June speaker is Richard Millington, the online community builder of the new charity campaign, Born HIV Free.

Richard will present how the campaign has gone so far, what outreach with bloggers has worked, what hasn’t and general tips on how to build a community as a blogger. Rich has much experience with online communication including working with Seth Godin and his current job, working with the United Nations Refugee Agency.

Born HIV Free was started by Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and has much mainstream support from Google, MSN, Orange and YouTube. One billion web impressions were donated to spread awareness to the cause and musicians such as U2’s Bono and Amy Winehouse have lent their support. The goal is to eradicate babies born with HIV, worldwide, by the year 2015.

  • Born HIV Free is a great initiative. Living in South Africa, where the epicentre of the HIV pandemic is located I have seen the suffering close up at first hand. Efforts like this are deserving of your support, lets work together to make the world a better place for all people.

  • our hands together to rescue the unfortunate lives and bring life to those children who carry within a century of HIV disease

  • We just appreciate people who think always about the other’s illnesses and suffer, and try to help them several ways.
