World Aids Day
Today was World Aids Day. What is World Aids Day you ask? According to http://worldaidsday.org, World Aids Day is held on December 1st each year as a way for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died.
Even though I didn't participate in any World Aids Day activities today, I wore my Hike & Bike t-shirt to show my support. Aids LifeCycle had a goal of raising $1 Million dollars by today. They have not said if the goal has been met, but I think that there is a good chance it was since just a couple days ago the grand total was at $951,236. That's pretty good since many participants haven't even begun thinking about starting their fundraising.
If the goal is met, any participant who received a donation by today will receive a commemorative World Aids Day 2013 bandana. So, if the goal has been met, I should be receiving one. I have been doing pretty well with my fundraising. So far, I've raised $600 online, but I have another $640 in cash donations from my ornament sales. Thanks to an amazing friend, most if not all of my cash donations will be doubled. So, factoring in that, I'm over half way to hitting my minimum. I just raised my goal up to $5000 and I'd love to reach that. If you are reading this, please consider making a donation and supporting me in this journey, if you haven't done so already. http://tofighthiv.org/goto/melissareilly
