I was sent an email asking me to follow a link so that Bristol-Myers Squibb would “donate a dollar to AIDS” once I ‘light‘ the virtual candle on the page. I don’t know what AIDS is going to do with that dollar but if it were going to go to the National AIDS Fund, then maybe they’d know what do something with it. Okay, so I can’t find anything that says a $1 donation was made for ‘lighting’ the virtual candle, but the site does allude to a donation having been made by BMS and ‘other sponsors’ to the National AIDS Fund since they say I can “donate more”

Anyway – go ahead and mosey on over to https://www.lighttounite.org/ and ‘light’ a damn ‘candle’ – and then come back and explain why they use a secure https:// connection for this.
