|Join me in my efforts to support The Life Group LA!|
|On my mom's birthday last month I dedicated my ride to my mother. |
In her honor
It's what she asked for for her birthday. She said "do or donate to something that you know will make this world a better place for my birthday."
So I ride for her which ironically has become the ride for the life of the work of Life Group LA itself.
Please donate as much as you can knowing this agency saves lives, quite literally, by educating, empowering, emotionally supporting, and broadening a deeper understanding of personal responsibility to one's own care and choices when living with HIV.
Also, always having been a guerrilla care agency (not burdened with limitations of Federal Funding - who by the way require names reporting that Life Group refuses to do) they've been able to adapt to the needs and respond to them in real time, as the need comes up.
A perfect example is the recent Resiliency Workshop for the LGBT Community and their allies. A overwhelming success attended by not only citizens but psychologists, department heads of other non-profits and was even promoted by several HR departments around the LA area.
This is the program and agency that ALL THE OTHER AGENCIES IN THE AREA REFER THEIR CLIENTS TO and the one with the smallest and leanest operating budget and a highly dedicated corp of volunteers.
I should say they also provide training for clients to give back as not only volunteers, but Certified Emotional Facilitators.
For the first time since 2010, the political climate has threatened to close their doors on all they do ... all we do. I am a part of the team. What we do is state of the art empowerment and we have been called to mentor as far away as Hawaii with them carrying the training all the way to the Marshall Islands.
As an investment .... it's probably the wisest one I can think of and I have dedicated myself, and my ride for my Mother, and every ounce of belief I have to Life Group LA.
I truly hope you donate willingly and with a huge open heart. I also hope you register and ride with us or register for our next workshop in your area.
