Help David Raise Money for HIV/AIDS

Posted by Ms. M on January 14, 2017 at 12:10 AM

Hello all - Your resident ghost-webmistress here!

This site is pretty dormant these days, due to David's decision a while ago to leave LA and go back to Pittsburgh to help his community in a less-public manner. However, I still believe in the power of the community we built, so once again, I'm here to plug David's latest fundraiser: AIDS/LifeCycle.

If you want to donate, you can do so here.

We made a significant impact when we banded together to donate to his brother's bike ride for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and I think we can do it again. :)

For inspiration and explanation, I'll let David's words speak for himself:

 

Why

It's a great mistake to think that HIV/AIDS is a disease that's been conquered. Or "taken care of". It's a sad mistake to think that now it only affects people in the Third World and developing countries. More than a million people in the US live with HIV. And although some rates are declining more than 35 thousand people were infected in 2015. It IS amazing what progress and what triumphs AIDS researchers and the fighting community have achieved. These are tributes to the incredible limits of human endeavor. What was called a plague, a sure death sentence is now a treatable illness.

I don't usually do these things: wave a flag for something I've not been personally hurt by, embark on a journey for something "Unrelated to me". And that's my mistake. I live in a neighborhood in Pittsburgh where HIV infections are still a serious problem. I spent the winter and spring of 2016 tutoring young kids in modes of storytelling and acting, learning as much from them and their parents as they did from me and I realized for them HIV is as real as unemployment, or the flu, or the violence that out of nowhere can invade their lives on a daily basis.

So I guess like most things I do: this one's for Pittsburgh. Help me give back to these kids in the Mon Valley who showed a middle aged actor what a thrill it is to hear out loud once more a lovely tale.
