Come On Now, Y'All

Update - yes I've set a goal of 250 for the AIDS Walk - Atlanta and yes, I've already received 100 bucks from 4 people with generous offerings of 25.00 each. Thank YOU, Laurie, HDW, Dirk and....a manager from my place of employment.

So, now, I'm begging and that doesn't happen often, unless of course it's for a good cause and THIS is a good cause. Come on Y'all, DONATE to a GOOD CAUSE. You don't have to donate 25.00 bucks, but you could if you wanted too, or more, because competition is HEALTHY, lol. You can donate as little as 5 bucks, yes 5 bucks, that's what a grande Starbucks coffee, a Happy Meal, a beer? or 2? or maybe 5 depending on what you drink?

Point is, these are all things that will be around tomorrow, next week, a LIFETIME, long after your gone! And so will AIDS. But the people who get this disease may not be around tomorrow, or next week and certainly not a lifetime. You may think "serves those fags right", but not so fast. Nobody, gay, straight, man, woman nor child asked for this, no one deserves this and yet...millions have it for so many reasons.

The man or woman who trusted enough to express physical love, the child who desperately need that blood transfusion, the mother who made the wrong choice for what may have been the right reasons while pregnant and the list goes on and on and on.

AIDS/HIV does not, never has and never will discriminate.

So won't you please, give 5, give 10, hell give what you can, just GIVE. One day without Starbucks, a Happy Meal or beer won't kill you, but AIDS/HIV....well, we all know how that ends.

I read about your walk on Dirk's blog and I went straight away to donate. I just want to say thank you for doing this and congratulations on the fundraising so far. Best of luck, this walk will change your life, much like the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer changed mine.
