Suffice to say, we're very happy and thankful to the band and hope to raise enough money for the next phase of the renovation of our new International HIV/AIDS Awareness Education Centre (IHAEC), that we plan to open on June 25th, 2010 to train young people from all over the world how to think up affordable, efficient and fun safe sex campaigns, using elements from pop culture such as music, fashion, the internet and celebrities.
We hope that many Tokio Hotel fans will participate to the contest/fundraiser - and we think they will, as their dedication and sense of goodwill are legendary.
A big thank you to all the fans and to Tokio Hotel for their continuous support!
A while ago, tons of Tokio Hotel fans showed their support to DAA by spreading the safe sex message. Now Tom Kaulitz lets them now he's ever so proud!

Click to see the collection!
Designers Against Aids has teamed up with Mistral Home Textiles, creating a unique bed linen collection with designs coming from the creative minds of Belgian singer Kate Ryan, Belgian band Vive la Fête and Dutch graphic designers Shape Squad.
These duvet covers with matching pillowcases are made out of biological cotton and will not only ensure a good nights' sleep, they also carry an essential safe sex message. The single bed covers (140 x 200 cm) will be available in all Makro stores in Belgium from September 9th 2009, where they will be sold for the price of 24,95€.
Both manufacturer Mistral and distributor Makro will each donate 2€ of the sales price to Designers Against Aids, which means that 4€ per sold item will directly go to the DAA organization.
Have fun, but stay safe.
