"I Love You Positive or Negative" is an awareness campaign that fights against the stigma towards HIV positive people.

For this campaign, Designing Hope has mobilized various local artists and personalities (singers, TV presenters, sportsmen...) who have become the "Messengers".

Messengers have signed and personalized the campaign with a written & oral message.

The idea is to use the strength of charismatic and popular leaders to spread this message of tolerance on a grand scale to the youth.

Designing Hope worked in partnership with two South African channels; M-Net and E-TV, to air 30 seconds spots of the personnalities supporting the campaign.

The TV spots were shown on their network in Southern Africa for six months from september 2006 to February 2007.

The AFDA school of cinema, has also added to the succes of this project by involving the teachers and grad year students from their schools in Johannesburg, in the making of these films.
