For the past 10 years, I have had a remarkable (read: life-affirming) experience during the first week of June that many of you have been a part of...and I am repeating it this year VIRTUALLY with your help (since the ALC Ride is not happening).
The impact will be audacious during these difficult times: We will be able to provide 12 months of health counseling, testing, education, and counseling for 330 clients. This is a group that has traditionally been underserved, but during COVID have been particularly hit hard so our efforts are especially needed now.
Over the years, I have heard at "Camp Meetings" at the end of the day of so many "real-life" stories of individuals whose lives had changed because of the support you gave to them. I have been moved on numerous occasions by having the chance to have this kind of impact and I want us to do it again.
My big AHA! while fundraising over the years? Many people felt that their donation (in any amount) would not make a big impact. False. While I had some exceptionally generous donors last year, if I were to take them out, by average donation was around $65! Every dollar gets us closer to helping someone turn their life around!
But, with your help, I can do it again and be a part of the World's biggest AIDS Fundraising effort still.
All my appreciation..stay healthy and stay hopeful. The times they are a-changing!
