A New Opportunity To Make a Difference!!!
« on: February 07, 2007, 12:16:58 PM »
Many of you know about my penchant for activism, and the need to keep our life challenges in front of the public to garner some interest to our plight...

Now you can make a difference.  Our own Lisa has had a vision for some time now that is finally coming to fruition, and some of you are so very capable of helping to bring this to some maturity, and we need your talents, skills and gifts to make this idea come about.  I know from experience here that many of you want to help, but have not had the ability for whatever reason.  Well, now is the time to make that difference and become a part of something really wonderful and challenging.

Here are a few links to help you get started.  Please feel free to offer ideas, but at this point, please remember that this "idea" is one that is inspired, so please don't become so critical of the vision that you loose the focus of the main goal here.

Intro:

http://forums.poz.com/index.php?topic=8404.0

Invite to new opportunity:

http://forums.poz.com/index.php?topic=8511.0

Now let's all get busy, we have a load of shit to do and accomplish if this is going to come about, so I don't care if you became HIV+ yesterday, you are welcome to help out with this very interesting and vital opportunity.

In Love, and Concern.
Tim/Moffie.

This doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals,
It's just that they need more supervision.

Time for a bumpie poo!
C'mon you guys! I would think that every person that participated in the "Is health Care a Right" thread would be totally on board with this.
Anybody out there willing to put their effort into more than typed debate? ???

I would think the hesitancy may be from not knowing what they can do to help.  Am I right people?

Not asking anyone to do anything, other than be willing to show up in Washington on whatever the designated day will be. We haven't gotten down to a particular day, but we are looking at spring of '08'.
Think of it as a Woodstock for HIV/AIDS in the capitol. A show of strength, and solidarity in asking OUR government to begin the process of stepping up.
We need this as a country.

Woodstock theme!  There's another good idea.

I will look over the link later. A march setup for spring of 2008? I think I can possibly swing that one, I'm working on trying to save a few pennies now. I'm still not clear on how else I can help. Lisa/Moffie if you give me some suggestions of how I could help, I would love to. You can either PM me or leave it in this thread.

I'm with Queen.  Tell me how I can help and I'd be glad to do it!  I think its a brilliant idea!
