****the 1st 50 people to raise $100today will get that amount matched**** please share this around!
I know, I know — it’s election time & there are so many great candidates asking for donations. But you know what will still be going on on November 7? AIDS. People affected by HIV & AIDS will still need their meds, will still need specialized dental care; and people whose illness has progressed will still need the food bank &/or the home cooked meals that donations provide. Please, if you can, spare a few dollars to help people at my AIDS Walk Austin page.
This will be my 31st AIDS Walk Austin – I’ve done every damn one of them. I love the AIDS Walk & the Ride (the spring fundraiser for the same organizations) 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.
My goal is $5,000 this year. I’ve raised $645. They really need it. With the cuts the Orange One’s administration has proposed — and even if we get rid of him, we’d have President Pence who would 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. 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.
The theme for the Walk this year is “step to zero” — that every step we take gets us closer to zero new infections. Won’t that be wonderful? Please help AIDS Services of Austin & the other agencies get us there. And here’s a song for you to listen to while you go to my AIDS Walk Austin page & donate:
