(You can skip my personal sales pitch and just make your donation here.)
Last year, at the last minute, Brother Juan & I decided to participate in the AFAN AIDS Walk. Here's my recap of that fun & fulfilling event. (I really had a good time.)
This year, Brother Juan & I will again be participating in the AFAN AIDS Walk; only this time, we'll be doing it as the Grouchy Johns team.
The theme this year is "What's your color?" and AFAN plans to issue different color t-shirts to each participating team, based on each team's donation level. We hope to raise over $1,000.00 in donations between now and April 17th (which would get us the coveted "grand green" shirts). I know, it's a little ambitious of us, but, hey, it's for a great cause, right?
But we can't do it without your help & support. (Just click on any of the links in the next paragraph.)
If you can make a donation, that would be great. If you can join our team and participate in the event with us, that would be great, too. And if you can do both, well, you must be family. Or a saint. Either way, you'll be more than welcome, and we will shower you with our undying, caffeinated affection.
In other words, people who join our team will get a FREE drink from us at the event. I recommend a Grouchy Johns Latte (which is made with white chocolate & amaretto) or a Peppermint Iced Coffee (which is a great way to get a cool, refreshing jolt on a hot day).
Come on! It'll be fun!
