To some people Vegas to Venice could simply mean one hell of a road-trip... but to a couple of creative fundraisers from the UK, mainly the chance to make a big mark in the fight against AIDS.
In 2011, Jamie and Joe started working on vegas2venice, an HIV/AIDS road-trip film documentary and one of their many efforts in support of the HIV/AIDS charity Arms Around the Child (http://www.armsaroundthechild.org). With their biggest and latest project, the duo aims to reach and positively impact as many people as possible with an extraordinary experience and message: a trip across Europe showing the lives of different people touched by HIV/AIDS and how passions, hopes and dreams ultimately make us all the same in spite of anything...including HIV/AIDS. The 3-part documentary web series --premiering online (http://www.vegas2vegas.co.uk/blog/) on November 28th and just in time for World AIDS Day (Dec. 1st)-- is an impressive 7-day and 3,000 mile summer road-trip through 8 countries. Jamie and Joe's adventure kicks off in their hometown of Ross-on-Wye (AKA Ross Vegas) and ends in London at Arms Around the Child headquarters. The other cities visited include: Bristol, Paris, Geneva, Milan, Venice, Munich, Frankfurt, Cologne, Amsterdam, Brussels and Bruges.
With vegas2venice Jamie and Joe (and DAA!) hope to inspire and encourage people to get more involved in the cause and help end AIDS by 2020.
