So I hope this isn't an inappropriate thing to post on here, but on July 14th, I'm going to be participating in Lyle's Myles. The 19th annual Lyleís Myles 5K Walk/Run is a benefit for AIDS charities. It is held in cooperation with ďSaturday in the ParkĒ, Vancouverís 18th Annual LGBT Pride Event, and with Referendum 74 advancing to the ballot this November, LGBT causes need our support more than ever.
Iím asking, if you are able and so inclined, to help by donating. Iíve set up a PayPal account to collect donations.
Of your donations:
40% will go to Global Partners funding a project in Africa, which will help a community break the cycle of poverty and save lives. 50% will go to Marthaís Pantry in Vancouver, providing the poorest and most needy individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS with food, toiletries, clothing and more. The remaining 10% of funds raised will go to Cascade AIDS Project in Portland.
Please email me if you choose to donate (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know your contact information (even an email address will work) if you would like a tax receipt. Also, if you have another way youíd prefer to make your donation, please let me know.
Thanks for reading this and thanks to all that donate, whether itís $2, $20 or more. I appreciate it and itís going to a great cause. Also, if youíre not busy on July 14th, join all of us at Esther Short Park in Vancouver!
