Boring blog today: Just a copy of the fundraising email I sent out earlier.
Dear friends, family, and total strangers that want to make a difference:
Hey all, I hope you are doing well and staying healthy. I write yet again asking for your help. I am trying to raise money for HIV/AIDS research, treatment, education and awareness by taking part in AIDS/Lifecycle 12, a 7-day, 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles on June 2nd-8th.
The ride is under 14 weeks away, but, as we all know, this time of year those weeks start to fly by. The minimum to take part in the ride is $3,000, and I am just over 2/3 of the way there. However, I’m trying to reach $5,000. I reached this goal the last time I rode this event two years ago, and I would love to match that, or even pass it, if possible.
That is where you come in. Any amount helps, be it $5, $50, or $500. Any amount big or small will help save lives right now. And remember, your donation is fully tax deductible.
Simply click this link (or the one at the bottom of this message) to go to my personal ALC 12 homepage, and then click on “Donate to support Erik” which will bring you to my personal donation page. It’s as easy as that!
Thank you all ahead of time for whatever you choose to do to help out!
