AIDS/Lifecycle 12 Fundraising Letter #2

            Hey there, I hope your Holiday weekend went well.  I know mine did, I must have read for 15 hours, at least.  Stephen King, wordy writer. 

There is another holiday coming up, one that does not get nearly as much media attention and love as Thanksgiving, Black Friday, or even Cyber Monday.  This Saturday, December 1st, is World AIDS Day.  There isn’t a better time to show your support to help end this global killer than now by donating to a great cause, AIDS/Lifecycle.

            Long story short, on June 2nd-8th, 2013, I will be riding my bike, with 2,500 other riders and 500 volunteer support staff, 545 miles over 7 days from The Cow Palace in San Francisco to The Vet Center in Los Angeles.  Our goal is to raise money for HIV/AIDS research, support, education and awareness.  My personal goal is to raise $5,000 by June, $1,500 of that before December 31st.

            That’s where you come in.  Your donation is tax deductible, so for those of you looking for an end of the year charity to donate to, this is a great one.  Any amount works, $5, $50, or $500.  Somewhere, someone will benefit significantly from your generosity.  Ever dollar counts, every dollar directly saves lives.  Both to folks living with HIV/AIDS now, and those who might contract it in the future. 

            There is also an incentive for donors:  To commemorate World AIDS Day, donate at least $125 dollars by December 1st and receive a free commemorative World AIDS Day magnet!

            Donating is simple.  Just click this link, also located at the top and bottom of this message, to go to my personal donation page.  From there, click on “Donate to Support Erik” to make your donation.  From that page, if you so desire, you can also download a mail in order form to fill out to donate by mail. 

            Again, thank you all so much in advance for any support you can show for this wonderful cause!  And please, pass this message on to anyone who might be interested.  The more people we get involved, the better!

            Thank you!
