Red Scarf Campaign


Scarf and Lamp

3rd Annual Red Scarf Campaign

Calling all knitters, crocheters and crafters.  We need your help!

After a positive response from the community last year, AIDS New Brunswick is planning the 3rd Annual Red Scarf Campaign.

On World AIDS Day, December 1, 2017, AIDS New Brunswick will be tying Red Scarves on lampposts and benches around Downtown Fredericton in a symbolic representation of the red ribbon used to represent those lost to, and still affected by HIV/AIDS.

In 2016 we collected over 200 knitted, crocheted and fleece scarves.  Help us do it again this year!

In order for this to be possible we are hoping to have donated 200 homemade scarves that are:

  • Red;
  • Knitted, crocheted, or no-sew fleece;
  • Roughly 6″ wide and 60″ in length; and
  • In a pattern of your choice.

The scarves will be pinned with an information card explaining the symbolism.

Best of all, the scarves will be free for the public to take!  Everyone will be encouraged to wear their scarf to show their support for World AIDS Day and National AIDS Awareness Week.

In order to have time to affix the scarves with the information cards we are asking all donations be received by November 29.

If you would like to donate a scarf or scarves, or to learn more about this event please contact Keri-Ann Scott at 1-800-561-4009 or email redscarf@aidsnb.com so that we can add your donated scarf to our tally.
