“America’s Next Top Model” star Jay Manuel explained to followers how to join in the online support campaign, “It’s WORLD AIDS DAY. Show your support for @joinred. Use #RED & turn tweets red.” Ashton Kutcher posted a startling statistic to get fellow tweeters to help, “WORLD AIDS DAY – 10% of world population is in Africa. 67% of all HIV cases are there. Get involved. #red.” Ciara encouraged fans to take part in helping stop the global epidemic, “2day is WorldAidsDay & I would like 2 encourage everyone 2 do everything to protect themselves! Know your partner and get tested b4 getting involved! Once you start to get involved, dont stop getting tested! Make the tests mandatory! love Ciara!”
Today not only marks World AIDS Day, but, of course, the start of December and Hollywood had some ideas on what else you can do to ring in the new month. “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” actress Nia Vardalos suggested, “It’s December..could someone please invent candy cane cereal…” Or you could always kick things off by following Twitter newbie (and “90210” hottie) Matt Lanter (pictured). His fellow CW cohort, “Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev has already welcomed him to the Twitterverse with open arms, “hey buddy welcome to the twitter world :)” Hey, Matt, just so you know, we here at Hollywood Crush are pretty darn happy to have you, too!
