Founder/Chairman

Los Angeles, CA (June 6, 2011) – Founder and Chairman of the Blink Campaign, Tyrone Farley, has become an avid campaigner for the AIDS foundations around the country. Through his series of events, interviews and presentations he continues to inform his peers and colleagues of the affects that being ignorant about HIV/AIDS have on the upcoming generation.

Tyrone Farley launched the Blink Campaign after the 2009 political address by President Obama, calling America to action to help in the change in the AIDS community. The structure of the campaign at that point was to educate on the statistics and about condoms, but after the loss of Tyrone’s best friend of 17 years, the structure changed. In March of 2011, Tyrone’s best Friend was diagnosed with HIV at a local Los Angeles clinic, not being able to handle the issue and falling victim to the stigma later killed himself. This action forced Tyrone to change the structure of the campaign focus more on breaking the stigmas and letting the world know that individuals with HIV/AIDS are people too, while raising money for smaller to mid-sized non-profit organizations.

“This campaign means a lot to me, but I want people to understand that this is not a non-profit organization, but rather a tool to raise money for organizations with,” says Tyrone Farley.

“I am honored to work with such wonderful people in Los Angeles and in cities around the country that are willing to support me and my team in our efforts, this is about helping people and giving back and giving people the outlet to give back also,” says Farley.
