For my birthday, looking for donations for the Hill Country Ride for AIDS

posting in Orange on 1/10 at 9am

My birthday is Thursday, I’m doing the Hill Country Ride again this year & I’d really love $54 donations, but really any donation is more than welcome.

My goal is $2,000 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 Hill Country Ride 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… They do things like feed people with a food bank, and even home cooked meals for people who are too ill to cook for themselves. There’s a dental clinic, because people living with HIV & AIDS have particular dental needs. There’s the Wright House Wellness Center — their slogan is “caring for mind, body & spirit since 1988”. And others, so — here’s an opportunity to do a good thing, that does nothing but help people. Please donate, and if you can’t donate, share.

Also, it’s my birthday and I’m just a little bit of a U2 fangirl. Just a slight, teensy bit. They have a new album out, and I can always find things they say that have to do with the AIDS Ride & the Walk. I’ve decided this is my theme song for 2018, because wow that title. And also this bit of lyric:

Write a world where we can belong
to each other and sing it like no other

and I’ll be posting more songs in the comments, because this is my chocolate — listening to my boys makes me happy (though, tbh, I love this version of this song because my gorgeous silver fox is front & center in that picture)

one more time, here’s the link for My Hill Country Ride Page
