As some of you may already know, my birthday is coming up on October 8. Our anniversary is also fast approaching - October 6! (Jerame and I will have been together for 8 years now! Wow!)
Usually around now I put up a link to my Amazon wishlist and some nice folks have been very generous. This year though, I want to do things a little differently. I still want presents, of course! But I want something else this year. :)
Do you remember when I posted about GIFA, PFLAG, IAN and INTRAA joining together as "United Against AIDS"? Our local groups will be walking in the 2006 AIDS Walk and this year I'd like for you to support our efforts instead of sending me a CD, book or whatever. Other participants have already raised over $700 for the cause, but my personal donation amount raised is -- zero! :(
I would love it if every reader who comes by today would take the time to click the link and just give $5. (Of course, $50 or $500 if you can afford it would be excellent!) The money raised goes directly to the Indiana AIDS Fund - we don't see a penny of it. So, please - help me have a happy birthday. And help other Hoosiers have a happier life.
