AMG....Helping Each Other.
« on: February 21, 2008, 05:56:09 PM »
I know this is not the right thread for this topic but it's important for everyone to read it and beware of it. 

The AMG (Aidsmeds Gathering) is celebrating its fourth Gathering this year in Mexico City Aug, 7-12.  The Gathering is just that, an opportunity for all of us here at Aidsmeds to come together and experience the feelings and emotions that we share we each other in the cyber world.  It is about who we are as a group and our experiences despite our differences and strong personalities. 

If you would like to attend the Gathering in Mexico City but cannot afford to, please PM the Grants Committee with you real name and address.  We will accept all requests for financial aid, in the order they are received.  Other than the order they are received in, there is really no criteria to determine eligibility.  Please, we want to help you, but we cannot unless you let us know.

Any requests for assistance are kept private and confidential.

Now, these grants are possible only through the generosity of all of our members. Last year, the Grant Committee received over $5,000.00 cash  donations to help provide airfare and hotel assistance to our fellow members.  We also had  non-cash donations (free room sharing courtesy of other members) valued at over $800.00

Once again, we need to replenish our coffers so we can provide for others to attend the Gathering.  We  have a  cash balance of $210.00.  We are asking our members to step up and help those who otherwise could not afford to go. If you could contribute $10-20 or more, then out goal of helping each  other will be fulfilled.  Whatever amount is affordable, when combined with the giving of everyone else, will be used to help as many members as possible.

Also, if any member who is attending is willing to share his/her room with someone else, please let us know.   You can share your room with a grantee and only pay you half of the room.  If you wish to share your room and not charge the person you would share it with, that would be even better.

So, if you can do so, please PM the Grants Committee and open up your wallets (or purses.)

And, again, if you would like to attend the Gathering in Mexico City please PM the Grants Committee with you real name and address. Any requests for assistance are kept private and confidential.

thank you.
