Pink Ribbon is for Breast Cancer, I make this mistake also. Thanks to Welshalex, Mindtrance and Tinayena for the info of the ribbon colour.

This design is talking about the innocent victim of HIV. I'm not sure how many people will wear this kind of design, do you?

Excellent design. Well done.

Really brilliant. It would be great if this was printed & Threadless put a few $ onto the purchase price to go to Aids/HIV charities. It'd be a good thing for Threadless too, they'd get more traffic with links from charities websites. $5 from me.

very powerful messages.

it's lovely and really great for HIV/AIDS. I wish you'd make the ribbon stand out more though, maybe by highlighting in orange as you did to the kids.

Excellent, it makes me feel like going into a contemplative state.
Well done.

I think anything that isn't orange is not clear enough to be on the tshirt. The design should be somewhat darker to have any effect. Otherwise, nice idea!

Awww... So sad... but so touching...

I would totally buy this. Maybe Threadless could do a fundraiser for that kind of thing?

hard to see on red. =/

Beautiful... the lines and shadows on the boy and the ribbon could still be darkened a tad more to make him subtly more distinctive than the girl since the focus shld be on him. I would so wear this and would not care abt narrow-minded pple. $5 and props to you, Flying Mouse.

periwinklepixie

my only problem... i dunno with this shirt, while that HIV/AIDS sucks a lot.... like a LOT.

But to say that there is an "innocent" victim of HIV/AIDS (note the "innocent" victim is a white male child...) it connotes that there are victims who are "guilty"

No ones deserves HIV/AIDS no matter what they do. that's my two pence.

should be a fundraiser shirt

It is a nice design but I agree with periwinklepixie in relation to your language around HIV/AIDS.
I work for a sexual health agency and to use the word innocent implies some people deserve it, whether this was your intention or not. I also do not like the use of the word victim, HIV is a virus which people can aquire and have to live with in much the same way as people acquire and live with hep C and other viruses.
People living with HIV is far more appropriate language than "Innocent victim of HIV".
