Nerds want you to join Florida AIDS Walk 2012

What would a 12-year-old nerd do? After trying to feather his pretty hair, he’d help us raise funds for Florida AIDS Walk 2012. Join our team, donate and pass this link forward to friends and family: http://takeaction.aidshealth.org/site/TR?px=1008298&fr_id=1120&pg=personal.

Note: According to the CDC, only 9.6% of adult Americans have been tested for HIV. Furthermore, only 1 in 4 HIV infected Americans receive adequate medical care to control the disease.CNN.com reports that South Florida has one of the highest HIV infection rates in the nation. Although Florida AIDS Walk can’t fix these numbers, we are part of a long-term, multidimensional solution that will diminish the impact of HIV/AIDS on those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

Bobo the Mutt Joins Florida AIDS Walk 2012

Bobo the Mutt, the official supervisor for the Florida AIDS Walk 2012, asks you to donate money for the cause. The donations will be split among organizations that provide healthcare services, counseling support and peace of mind for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS regardless of their ability to pay. Bobo the Mutt barks, “This is important because we still live in the richest country on the planet that doesn’t provide equal access to health services for all citizens (or mutts) regardless of income or employment status.” Since Bobo the Mutt is unemployed, he has time to march. If you don’t have time to join us, please support us with a few bucks. Some of the organizations that will benefit: AIDS Healthcare Foundation, SunServ, The Center for Positive Connections among others. Join my family or support us with a small cash donation that is totally tax deductible. I’m not sure what tax deductible means, but I suspect it has something to do with ducks who don’t pay taxes.
