A Letter From Santa

Welcome to another day in my life. Today is Saturday and I hope you are having a beary safe and great start to your weekend. It is another very busy weekend for Dab the AIDS Bear and me as we finish up our yearly holiday parties for children living with HIV and AIDS.

If you are ready this today then the Mayan calendar predication and the doomsayers were wrong and the world is still revolving today with everything going as well as it can be.

Every year the holidays and especially Christmas was very special to my god-daughter, Candace. But like Candace there are far too many children who died due to complications from AIDS before we had life saving medications that really worked.

Dab the AIDS Bear has been wishing the same wish for Christmas for 32 years now... a cure for HIV and AIDS. While I can't guarantee the bear and I will get our wish this year, we will keep wishing until the wish comes true.

Wishing all of you a beary Merry Christmas! The following is a video letter from Santa to all of you:

I hope you enjoyed the video letter from Santa. I would also like to thank all of you who have sponsored children living with HIV and AIDS at our Teddy Bear Touchdowns. It is because of you we are in our 23rd year of doing the parties and keeping the promise I made to my god-daughter as she was dying.

For that you have my eternal gratitude!

I am going to keep the blog for today short because we have a ton to get done today. Dab the AIDS Bear and I are off an running to do another party for the kids.

I hope you have a beary safe and great Saturday. Remember that you are special and do something nice for yourself. Life is not a dress rehearsal. We can't change yesterday or predict tomorrow but we can make the most of today!

Until we meet again; here's wishing you health, hope, happiness and just enough.

big bear hug,

Daddy Dab
