Hi Friends! Thanks for clicking on my link.
Have you heard of the AIDS/LifeCycle? It is a 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise funds for the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. According to AIDS/LifeCycle's website, about 3,000 cyclist, roadies and virtual cyclists did the 7-day bike ride in June 2018.
AIDS/LifeCycle is organizing another ride from June 2 through June 8, 2019. Guess what? I’ll be doing the ride this time!
The services provided as a result of this event mean the world to those who receive them, and your support would mean a lot to me.
Please donate any amount. No amount is too small.
Here's a little more info about how your money will directly help the cause:
In the U.S. alone there are over a million people living with an HIV+ status and many still contracting the disease without even knowing it. One way we can help is through educating people on safe sex practices and encouraging people to get tested regularly and knowing their status!
A $25 DONATION provides a Rapid HIV Antibody test at Magnet (a free community clinic located in the heart of San Francisco's Castro's district)! Tragically over 75% of the HIV+ people in the US are living at or below the poverty line making access to life-saving medication near impossible.
A $100 DONATION can provide all the resources for one patient visit to Magnet. Another constant struggle for those affected is the horrible stigma that surrounds the disease and that we as a society perpetuate. Let's spread facts, not fear!
A $500 DONATION will provide medical benefit counseling for 15 people which will allow them to obtain perscription drug assistance.
A $625 DONATION can provie a safe and stable housing situation for one HIV+ person for an entire month thanks to a partnership between the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the San Francisco Department of Public Health.
A $1,000 DONATION can put on two Stop AIDS Community Education Forums to help educate the masses about HIV/AIDS.
We’re working together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past.
To show how serious I am about this campaign, I am personally donating $500 to start. Will you join me in supporting these great organizations by making a tax-deductible donation today?
