For my birthday on Friday, I’d love $55 donations for the Hill Country Ride For AIDS

My birthday is Friday, I’m doing the Hill Country Ride again this year & I’d really love $55 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. I can always find things they say that have to do with the AIDS Ride & the Walk. Like this bit of lyric:

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

I love this video, because at the beginning, Bono says to some people hanging a Pride flag: “Be safe, be brave”. It makes me teary, because at the Chicago show, a nonbinary friend of mine got to hug Adam and got their Pride flag signed by all 4 members.

and a song by Snow Patrol — see, I do listen to other bands — called Life on Earth
This shouldn’t need to be so f*cking hard
This is life on earth
It’s just life on earth
It doesn’t need to be the end of you, or me
This is life on earth
It’s just life on earth

People affected by HIV & AIDS shouldn’t have to struggle like they do, it shouldn’t be so hard for them & their families. Please help if you can — even if it is nowhere near $55. One more time, here’s the link for My Hill Country Ride Page
