All you have to do is load the page.
And move the match to the candle image
And light it, and $1 will be donated to the National AIDs fund.
There will be a maximum of 100,000 dollars donated,
but right now only 11,390 candles have been lit
And every person can help and it takes 2 seconds!
conjunction with World AIDS Day, Bristol-Myers Squibb launched its third annual "Light to Unite" campaign on 27 November 2006. The purpose of the "Light to Unite" promotion is to both raise awareness of HIV/AIDS issues and raise funds for communities across the United States whose HIV/AIDS needs are underserved (and, the more cynical would say, to promote Reyataz, Bristol-Myers Squibb's anti-HIV drug).
The promotion promises to deliver $1 to the National AIDS Fund for every visitor who comes to the www.lighttounite.org web site through 31 December 2006 and lights a virtual candle. However, the promotion was capped at a maximum contribution of $100,000, and the "Light to Unite" site received over 100,000 candle-lighting visitors within a short time of its launch, so further web site visits are no longer raising additional monies for the National AIDS Fund.
However, it is possible — as sometimes happens — that the sponsor (Bristol-Myers Squibb) will react to the overwhelming public response by raising its maximum contribution cap.

Thank you for writing to us! Although we receive hundreds of e-mails every day, we really and truly read them all, and your comments, suggestions, and questions are most welcome. Unfortunately, we can manage to answer only a small fraction of our incoming mail.
Our site covers many of the items currently being plopped into inboxes everywhere, so if you were writing to ask us about something you just received, our search engine can probably help you find the very article you want.
Choose a few key words from the item you're looking for and click here to go to the search engine.
(Searching on whole phrases will often fail to produce matches because the text of many items is quite variable, so picking out one or two key words is the best strategy.)
