My dear friends, over the years you have been incredibly supportive of my efforts in the fight against AIDS/HIV, either by donating, contributing to/participating in my Ebay auctions, helping me spread the word, or just offering encouragement. Your support has meant the world to me and I know that without it, continuing to participate in AIDS Walk and meeting my fundraising goals would have been tenfold as difficult.
I come to you once again this year, in hopes you will once again lend me your support to achieve my fundraising goals. As per previous years, I'm raising the bar for myself--I have signed up as a Star Walker, meaning that I intend to raise no less than $1,000. This is an extremely ambitious goal for me, but I hope you will be able to help me reach it!
This year, my fellow faithful walker, oanimation
and I decided to do something fun and create a team. We are The She-Radettes in honor of one of our favorite cartoons and childhood heroine, She-Ra, Princess of Power!!! Seriously, how awesome was she?
My sister, millietheghoul
, is part of our team and my friend, Linda, will also be walking with us. We did AIDS Walk together last year, and as usual, it was an exhausting sort of fun! AIDS Walk is a 10 kilometer (6.2 miles) walk, but I can't help but be amazed and inspired over the number of people who gather in support of the fight against HIV/AIDS. Our numbers always trump those of protesters along the sidewalks. We all have different reasons for walking, but what's important is that we walk. If you are unfamiliar with my reason for walking, I invite you to visit my "Why I Walk
" post, which I originally created 6 years ago. If you are able, please help me reach my fundraising goal! Donations can be made via my AIDS Walk page by clicking on the banner below. The site takes credit cards and Paypal, but only allows donations of $25 and up. To donate less than $25
, you may do so via Paypal directly to me. I promise that all donations received via Paypal will go straight to my AIDS Walk efforts and you will see your name (if you wish) scroll on my official donation page.
Proceeds raised via AIDS Walk support AIDS Project Los Angeles and other local HIV/AIDS programs and services.
Thank you for your time.
