AIDS WALK

This is one of those entries where Chris will say "Dammit Woman! Give me some warning will ya? Sos I can sets up a Pay Pal". 'Cause Chris talks in hillbilly when he's annoyed. Well, it's that time of year again and I let it sneak up on me. The Oklahoma City AIDS walk is September 19th. I always have these grand fund raising plans, but in true procrastination fashion end up scrounging around for loose change. I did make an announcement to my Monday yoga class that proceeds for the month of September all goes to the OKC AIDS Walk. And now, I'm making my plea here. The OKC AIDS Walk raises money for other nonprofit organizations that provide AIDS/HIV care, support, education and awareness. When you donate to the AIDS Walk, you're actually donating to a bunch of places. Some times I worry that we've forgotten about this illness. That we forget that our young people need to be educated to protect themselves (and those they love). I worry that those suffering from this illness are still treated as lepers. I worry that the cases of infected are getting higher, something I just don't understand because we know how this disease is contracted.

So...the AIDS Walk is where I do my part. I recently came across this quote: "Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little." by Edmund Burke. This is the something little I can do. If you would like to donate please go to here. Enter my name (cindy maddera) in the right hand box under "Want to Donate?". It should send you to my fund raising page. And thanks, even if you can't donate, I know you're all out there supporting me in some way.
