AIDS Walk Austin – We Get To Carry Each Other

This is the 30th year of AIDS Walk Austin & I’ve done every damn one of them. I love the AIDS Walk & the Ride and the people who work at AIDS Services of Austin & the other agencies. They are an example of how we should be — caring for each other, carrying each other. If you haven’t met me, I’m just a teensy bit of a U2 fan, so yeah that was a reference to a song.

One love, one blood, one life, you got to do what you should.
One life with each other: sisters, brothers.
One life, but we’re not the same.
We get to carry each other, carry each other.
One, one.

My goal is $5,000 this year. They really need it. With the cuts the Orange One’s administration wants — and when he’s gone, we’ll have President Pence who will be even worse, especially for AIDS services — they really, really need it. Please donate at my AIDS Walk page. Please pass this around, ask people I don’t know, they really need it. This isn’t going to plush offices or research that should be funded by the government. This goes to literally help people — feed them, help with meds, a dental clinic, wellness activities…  Please donate, and if you can’t donate, share.

So this year, they’re having us do lip synch videos for the Walk, if you go to my AIDS Walk page, my latest one is the part of One that says “we get to carry each other”.

but here’s the whole song

    I don’t know how the walk logo got there, but I like it.

      Moose rules! A post needs to have a photo in it (and in the Featured Image) in order to be in the Featured Posts list on the Front Page. So I put it there so I could promote it!! :)

        I haven’t figured out pictures yet. Videos, yes, but not pictures. Thank you!

    Congratulations – every walk for 30 years is an accomplishment as well as a testimony to your loving-kindness. I’ll see what I can scrape up. {{{HUGS}}} and Healing Energy

    The bad news… I have to wait for payday. The good news…payday is tomorrow. Also tweeted your fundraising page (I hope that wasn’t too presumptuous of me!).
