{     35 Degrees of Separation to fight AIDS     } This has the numbers to be one of the most strangely fascinating initiatives to happen on December 1st, in occasion of the World AIDS Day. Inspired by the 6 Degrees of Separation Theory (two people, not knowing each other, are linked by a maximum of 4 other people who, like in a chain, are aware only of the previous and following ring), on December 1st, 50 people around the world will start a chain to demonstrate their desire to defeat AIDS. But they will not be sending a letter, a package or an email (as in previous experiments to test out the theory). They will be using a tin of mints. Each "chain ring" will be taking one mint and passing the rest and the tin on to another person, who will also pass it down, until the tin is empty: at that point, for each empty tin, complete with the log of the 35 strangers who took part in the chain (and nobody knows who could be in the list! Imagine 10 degrees away from you, the tin lands in the hands of Mick Jagger!) Youth Aids gets a hefty donation by the organizers, that is Hint Mint (who will provide each chain starter with a numbered tin from their Awareness Series), together with Chich Blvd. And it seems that the contemporary world leader of that old theory, conducting the experiment now named Small World Project, will be part of the game. The fifty people who will start the chains are still being chosen: applications are still open so if you want to be one of the fire starter who will kick AIDS nicely in the balls, apply and keep the tin going. You could even win an Ipod!
