Chappaqua, NY - AIDS awareness will extend to the World-Wide Web of the
Internet for World AIDS Day, December 1, when A Day Without Graphics will
take place. Participating Internet sites will disable inline graphics,
darken their text screens or link to a special page on the web to
demonstrate AIDS awareness.

The idea for A Day Without Graphics came from other World AIDS Day
activities taking place. A Day Without Art is a project where museums
remove or drape works of art and A Day Without Light is a project where
city lights are lowered for candlelight marches. Both projects are held in
cities all over the world. Likewise, A Day Without Graphics will take place
at Internet sites worldwide.

World AIDS Day, observed annually on December1, serves to strengthen the
global effort to face the challenges of the AIDS pandemic which continues
to spread in all regions of the world. In 1995, World AIDS Day will be
commemorated in the 190 member countries of the World Health Organization
(WHO), including the United States, to draw attention to the worldwide
threat to public health that is posed by AIDS. This organized effort is
designed to encourage public support for and development of programs to
prevent the spread of HIV infection and to provide education and awareness
of issues surrounding HIV/AIDS.

"We want to encourage every Internet site to get involved in AIDS awareness
in a creative way," said Rex Rivers, manager of The Land of Awes
Information Services.  "The potential of the medium is enormous and a lot
of people can be reached by it.  Hopefully, everyone who uses the Internet
will come to understand the world wide AIDS pandemic a little better
through this project."

"We welcome additional input from the online community," said Tom Hicks of
the CyberZine. "There are a lot of creative people out on the Internet and
I feel that we should all work together to raise awareness of AIDS issues."
