Big matching donation for AIDS Ride!

I just found out about this — today starting at noon central time, there’s $10,000 in matching donations for the Hill Country Ride for AIDS! If it is at all possible, please donate on my Hill Country Ride page. Anything. Any amount — even $5, because donations are doubled until the $10K is given out.

This Ride doesn’t bundle money up & send it off to a lab (not that research isn’t fantastic & wonderful & I’m glad for all the advances). It goes directly to help people who are living with HIV/AIDS — food bank, dental clinic, case management, subsidizing meds…. Direct help to people right now. So please if you can donate to my Hill Country Ride page. Here’s some examples of what your money does:

$120 provides education for 440 people. Education is one of the most important tools in reducing new infections.

$250 provides 3 family counseling sessions. It can be devastating for a family when a member is diagnosed, and we know that an intact family unit promotes health and provides a built in support.

$500 provides a month of rent for one family in supportive housing. Assistance with food, daily chores, trips to medical appointments and social support create a foundation for continued health and a step toward independence.

$1,000 gives 450 home cooked meals for hospice patients. When in hospice, there are often unique food needs. You can make sure that final days are spent with delicious food that doesn’t upset someone’s stomach.

We are the only ones who can help — as my boys say: there is no them, there’s only us

Please donate at my Hill Country Ride page

and a 2nd song, from the amazing show I saw Saturday night — this isn’t my video, but this is a wonderful song, love this verse:

Just take the hand that’s offered, and hold on tight

This isn’t everything you are

There’s joy not far from here I know there is

This isn’t everything you are
