The Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) is the oldest and one of the largest funders of HIV/AIDS service and education programs in the U.S. Since its founding in 1984, DIFFA has mobilized the immense resources of the design communities to provide over $38 million to hundreds of AIDS organizations nationwide. Starting with volunteers from fashion, interior design, furnishings and architecture, supporters of DIFFA now come from every field associated with fine design. DIFFA has also been an innovative agent in drawing local and national corporations into the fight against the epidemic, and enjoys tremendous support from the business community. DIFFA grants funds to organizations that fight AIDS by providing:
* Preventive education programs targeted to populations at risk of infection
* Treatment and direct-care services for people living with AIDS
* Public policy initiatives which add resources to private sector efforts
The Dallas Chapter of DIFFA is one the organization's strongest, and each year hosts a spectacular event to raise funds and awareness. This year's gala took place at the Hilton Anatole Hotel and featured great music, a silent auction and those famous denim jackets from local designers. This video was made for the event, and features James Hallam of Ben E. Keith Company, a longtime sponsor of DIFFA; Al James, DIFFA's director of operations; Dr. Brady Allen, a doctor of internal medicine and a veteran of the fight against HIV/AIDS in Dallas for almost 30 years; and Jan Strimple, former model and fashion industry legend. The video was donated by You+Dallas and we applaud the great work being done by DIFFA and its supporters.ï»¿
