Welcome to my page! I hope the fact that you are reading this means that you in the process of making a donation. Thank you in advance for your generous donation to a wonderful cause.

I’m participating in this year’s AIDS Walk Los Angeles, a 10K fundraising walk to fight the epidemic. I was inspired by my personal experiences with this organization and my BFF Kevyn. I have done this event once in the past and I am looking forward to doing it again this year.

Here are a couple of important facts about HIV/AIDS to consider before making your donation:

1. AIDS is still an epidemic - More than 60,000 people in L.A. County are living with HIV, and new infections occur every day.

2. The Trump Administration has no HIV/AIDS strategy - The President has dismantled both the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS and The Office of National AIDS Policy, and has abandoned the National HIV/AIDS Strategy.

3. The money raised will go to support APLA Health as well as 20 other L.A. County HIV service organizations. It will bring vital medical care, counseling, housing services and more directly to those who need it most. It will also provide vital prevention work to stop new infections.

Thank you for considering a donation! Every donation helps APLA Health stop new infections and support people living with HIV/AIDS. Just remember that every little bit helps. No donation is too small.

Here are a few examples of what your donations will be able to provide:

1. $10 - A week of groceries
2. $25 - 3 HIV test kits / counseling services
3. $50 - 15 bags of groceries
4. $100 - 100 safe sex kits
5. $500 - 35 transit passes for patients to get to medical treatment
6. $1000 - 20 Dental exams for patients
