Make an AIDS Walk 2006 Donation
AIDS Walk NY - May 21, 2006
Logan's friend Kathleen Gaffney is always raising money for something and/or volunteering her time. She is a really great person. This Sunday coming up she is walking in Aids Walk 2006 in New York. It would be great if people would donate money to this good cause.

Here is part of an email Logan got from Kathleen:

I am writing to let you know that I have registered for AIDS Walk New York taking place this Sunday, May 21st 2006 and I am very excited about the event. This is a very important issue to me so I have set an ambitious fundraising goal.

I want to do as much as I can to make a difference in the lives of men, women, and children affected by HIV and AIDS. Even though there has been a lot of publicity about drug treatments which are prolonging some people's lives, they don't work for everyone and there is still no cure in sight. Moreover, young people are still getting infected at alarmingly high rates.

GMHC and about 40 other AIDS organizations in the area get the money from the AIDS Walk. It's clear that we need more services and more prevention programs than ever before.

I need your help. Will you please sponsor me for the AIDS Walk? Just click on the website address below to enter my personalized web page and charge your donation - $5, $10, $20, ANY amount your budget will permit. Thank you, in advance, for supporting this important cause and for showing that you join me in wanting to end this epidemic.

A few facts you may want to know:
~AIDS Walk New York is the world's largest AIDS fundraising event.

~AIDS Walk New York stands out as a model of community action and cost-efficient fundraising. The priority has always been to have the money raised go directly to vital services to help people living with HIV or AIDS.

~AIDS Walk New York benefits GMHC (Gay Men's Health Crisis), the nation's oldest and most comprehensive AIDS Service organization. The organization's staff of 189 and 7,000 dedicated volunteers provide services to more than 15,000 men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS and their families.

~A portion of the net proceeds from the AIDS Walk also goes to dozens of other AIDS organizations within the tri-state area.

Logan thanks you for your support.
