About Think Red Project

Think Red Project is a registered 501 (c)3 non-profit corporation registered in the State of California, and has a mission to plan, promote and produce events that raise funds and awareness for the HIV/AIDS community.

We are serious about fund raising and serious about fun. We strive to take a modern approach on fundraising by creating unique experiences and celebrating the impact of HIV/AIDS organizations. We aim to activate a new generation of philanthropists, those who want to do something both feel-good and fun-loving.

Our main event - Red Dress Party San Diego - embodies these traits. Like the name suggests, attendees are required to wear a red dress, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. This serves as a powerful sign of compassion and solidarity for those affected by HIV/AIDS and as a way to unite the crowd in one radiant theme. Red
Dress Party San Diego is a whimsical fundraising event where everyone is allowed to feel welcome, be brave, let loose, and celebrate impact.

Quick Facts About HIV
HIV Virus
BTW HIV is Still a Thing
It's estimated that in San Diego County, a new person tests positive for HIV every 18 hours, and in the U.S. young people are the most likely to be unaware of their HIV status.1
Undetectable = Untransmittable
People living with HIV that take their medications as prescribed and have an undetectable viral load will not pass on HIV to sexual partners.2
Together We can End HIV
Early HIV detection plays a critical role in reducing new infections as it can lead to quicker results in treatment, better viral suppression, and prevent transmission to others.
