To generate a few more funds for my annual event benefiting local HIV/AIDS organizations in the Oregon area, myself and my mother came up with the idea of creating hand made red ribbons to sell online.

These fabulous HAND MADE red ribbons are attached to a hand made card with a metal clasp for easy removal. They feature a silver pendent in the middle with the word "Hope" etched on it. The pendant can be taken off to be used separately as a necklace. Each card will be mailed out with a personal hand written message by me. I'm only asking $10 each for these (which cover the supply costs and shipping in padded envelopes) and the easiest way to pay is via PayPal to JonathanReitan@gmail.com. I can also take checks or cash mailed to me at your discretion.

The benefiting charity this year is HIV Alliance, which is a non-profit group that provides client services to people with HIV/AIDS as well as education, prevention, awareness and resources in five Oregon counties. I personally am a HIV Alliance client and I take advantage of their case management services as well as their free dental program which has helped me out immensely.

Show your support for the cause by wearing one of these fashionable red ribbons to create conversation amongst your family and friends about HIV/AIDS and to support this worthy organization. Thanks!

Fundraising even for a worthy cause is not permitted on this site.

You're new to this site. The proper thing would have been to ask permission for this.

I will give you the benefit of the doubt so 'm not going to ban you, but I am going to lock this thread.
