Illinois Lottery "Spread the Word" Game to Support HIV/AIDS Causes
June 10, 2013
On June 5, the Illinois Lottery unveiled "Spread the Word," the only U.S. lottery game in which all net profits go directly to fund HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment. Developed in collaboration with Illinois-based HIV/AIDS organizations and the Illinois Department of Health, Spread the Word is expected to add $1 million to HIV/AIDS efforts. The Illinois Lottery has given more than $4.7 million to HIV/AIDS initiatives since 2008. The Illinois Department of Public Health will be responsible for administering grants from funds resulting from the Spread the Word game.
