    Hi - my name is Stephen Milne. I currently live in Japan but am originally from Scotland. I run a small design company out here in Japan.

    On Monday I was watching CNN, and the images I saw of men, women and children with AIDS in Zimbabwe horrified me. It is a shocking fact that 80% of male soldiers in Zimbabwe have AIDS, in urban areas, 40% of the population, and in general a quarter of all the adult population of Zimbabwe is HIV+.

    It got me to thinking what, as a group of designers, could we do to raise money to help the fight of AIDS.

    I had quite a few ideas, for example;

    - designers part donating / donating original designs
    - donating photographs/images to sell to raise money
    - creating affiliate accounts with shopping sites (Amazon etc) and
    asking designers to place those links on their sites / customer sites
    - offering web hosting where the profits would go to AIDS charities

    I would be more than happy to pay for hosting, domain name and my design skills.

    I need help with ideas, and help with organizing this.
    I just feel that as a group we could do alot.

    DESPAIR - it's how I felt when I saw those images, and I thought maybe thats what the group could be called

    DESigners Prevailing over AIDS - an International Response

    Just an idea.

    Im really just at a thinking stage right now, but I think it has a lot of potential.
    I would really appreciate any ideas, comments or commitment with making this work.

    Thanks for your time
    Stephen Milne
