Hello and thank you for visiting my AIDS Walk Atlanta home page. As many of you are aware, I serve on the board of Jerusalem House, currently as Vice Chairman. Jerusalem House is the largest provider of housing for families and individuals impacted by HIV. The last 18 months have been difficult for the agency. Our operating expenses increased due to COVID, and donations slowed for the same reason. However, I am proud to say not a single client went unserved.
Once a year I participate in AIDS Walk Atlanta to support Jerusalem House. Jerusalem House is fortunate to be a beneficiary of the walk, and every dollar donated goes straight to the organization. Even more exciting, AIDS Healthcare Foundation has agree to match every donation, dollar for dollar. $100 becomes $200.
Last year we (those I am sending this email to) raised $15,700 for Jerusalem House. You donated $3,925, I matched that donation, and then AHF matched our combined donation.
As my co-workers, neighbors, and friends, I am going to ask each of you again to dig deep into your pocket and consider donating again to JH. I will again match every donation, so give generously. My goal this year is $4,000.
Thank you again for your continued support.
