I have been reminded again how powerful the internet can be for raising money for AIDS WALK. Last Thursday, one of our Walkers sent out his First Giving fundraising page. A day or so later a donation was made on his page from a friend in Boston, MA in the amount of $5,000! Now, I share that not because we expect that to happen to every walker but only to use it as an example of how well First Giving works for raising money as a part of your efforts to support AIDS WALK! It is such an easy, reliable and safe way for your friends, family and co-workers to contribute to you. I have created my page so you know it has to be easy! And, although I am waiting for the “right day” to send it out to all my contacts in my address book, I have already collected several donations on it! I really urge you to make a big difference in your fundraising by clicking here and setting up your page today. I promise you that you will have fun and be amazed by generous responses you get...even from your friends that might live half way across the country!
