8 May

A friend once told me the best way to create a memory is to do something unforgettable.  So here goes…

Come June 3rd, I’ve decided to take a week away from my life in design and cycle from San Francisco to Los Angles to raise money for HIV/AIDS awareness. 

Let me start by saying that as of a month ago, I didn’t even own a bike. Nor am I fond of the idea of sitting on a seat measuring a fraction of my behind.  But with so many people today still struggling with HIV/AIDS, the idea of peddling 545 miles pales in comparison to the day-by-day challenges that many of our friends affected by this disease face.

Together, Eddie and I both will literally put the petal to the metal and ride from the city by the bay to the city of angels over the course of 7 days.  And so that none of this goes in vain, we are each committed to raising $5000 in the fight against AIDS.

Would I love it if you could help me reach my goal – YES!  I know it’s asking a lot, but I promise, I’ll will give a lot in return.

In fact, to show my immediate gratitude, if you decide to make a donation of $50 or more, I’ll send you a FREE autographed copy of my book ‘Take the U Out of Clutter’ just in time to cross spring cleaning off your to-do list.

Simply click here to go directly to the AIDS/LifeCycle website to make a donation.  And if you make a donation of $50 or more, I’ll be sending you a follow-up email to get your mailing address so I can send you a free book.

For all the people we know and all the people we don’t know dealing with HIV/AIDS, I consider this ride the least I can do.  And the way I figure it, if you start with the least you can do, we will have already moved a mountain.

So consider making a donation today and truly making this a ride to end AIDS.  Together, we can make a HUGE difference!

Thank you for your consideration and generous spirit; and for being a hero!

Until next time…
