Dab the AIDS Bear Needs Your Help
Welcome to another day in my life. Today is Friday and we have almost made it through another work week. I hope you had a beary safe and great week. Dab the AIDS Bear is on the road again this weekend doing more events. So stay tuned for more new pictures soon.
As most of you know we started doing our holiday events for children living with HIV back in 1989. We do these parties for the kids in memory of my god-daughter, Candace, who lost her battle with AIDS at age 4 in 1989. As she was dying, I promised her I would make other kids like her feel loved.
Since Christmas was her favorite holiday and I already knew the other children being treated in San Francisco, I decided to start Christmas parties for them since most of them came from low income families.
This will be our 26th year of doing the parties and I would never have dreamed we would be doing so many children in so many cities when we started.
The downside is like all HIV/AIDS organization, we are struggling to keep these holiday parties for the children going... more and more corporations and people think HIV/AIDS is no longer an issue. This year, we still have 406 children living with HIV who need sponsors this year.
You can bring love and hope to one of our wonderful children and sponsor a child at our holiday events at:
If you don't have a credit card to sponsor through Paypal, you can make out a check ($25.00 donation per child) to Dab the AIDS Bear Project and mail it to:

Dab the AIDS Bear and I would like to thanks all of you who have sponsored children this past year. It is because of loving people like you that we have been able to continue these parties for the past 26 years.
It takes all of us working together to make a difference in the world.
Wishing all of you a beary great weekend.
big bear hug,
