Dear lovely people,
So last year we raised money for Partners in Health for my birthday:
It was a great success, the best birthday i have ever had, ever. Now having a birthday has purpose for me instead of making me want to hide.
This year i am choosing Fenway Community Health center as the beneficiary. I've been learning a lot about this incredible institution. Did you know it was started in the '70s by activist Northeastern students, in order to provide affordable healthcare to minorities?
This timeline is amazing and inspiring! (click)
So, whether you know me or appreciate organizations which are open minded and progressive and serve the community or both, you can see why i chose Fenway as the spotlight charity.
But that is not all!
You can also choose to donate to any of my other causes. You can still donate to the Partners in Health page if you wish, which doesn't expire until January.
You can also donate to my friend Matt's taking onthe Jimmy Fund marathon, which is exciting: http://tinyurl.com/6ghsu3
Finally, you can help me help Alex be able to afford a wheelchair! http://www.myspace.com/makememobile
As for an event, come by that day's Couchsurfing meetup! (click for details) and say hello, meet some people, give and get hugs.
