Plant Something Day, Youth Day, Devil's Food Cake Day, more

May 19th, 2011 is Plant Something Day, Youth Day (Turkey), National Asian and Pacific Islander HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, Ho Chi Minh's Birthday, and National Devil's Food Cake Day.

Plant a seedling, bulb or sprout in honor of Plant Something Day. When you're finished, send e-cards to your friends, bragging about your accomplishments.

Today Turkey celebrates both Youth Day and the 90th anniversary of founder Ataturk's escape from Instanbul, on the Turkish path to independence.

May 19th is National Asian and Pacific Islander HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. This day was created by the Banyan Tree Project in 2005, in an effort to remove the stigma of HIV/AIDS in the API community.

Ho Chi Minh's Birthday is a national holiday in Vietnam. Saigon was renamed Ho Chi Minh City in honor of the former Prime Minister and President. "Ho Chi Minh" means "he who enlightens."

Enjoy some sinfully rich chocolate cake today in honor of National Devil's Food Cake Day. Then tomorrow, confess your sins and promise to stick to your diet.

  1. Re:solve is raising money to get a promising AIDS vaccine through testing and approval so that it can be distributed to everyone who needs it. Check this video from the lovely Ongina from RuPaul’s Drag Race:

  2. I wish your organization all the best. The world needs a safe and effective AIDS vaccine ASAP.
