HELP SAVE THE LIVES OF AMERICAN MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN WITH HIV AND AIDS.

Ryan White funding, which provides life saving anti-HIV medications and services for financially challenged American men, women and children is expiring on Sept. 30, 2009. Without this funding hundreds of thousand of Americans in need of life saving anti-HIV medications will die. We need your help to make sure Ryan White funding gets extended.

On Sept. 11th, help Dab the AIDS Bear get Ryan White funding extended past the September 30th sunset date. Ryan White funding helps provide life saving medications and other services for financially challenged HIV positive American men, women and children.

How to help: Starting at 9:11AM (Your time zone), call Secretary of Health Kathleen Sebelius and your members of Congress and ask them to extend Ryan White funding. If you get a busy signal due to high call volume, please keep calling back. You will be speaking to a member of these officials' staff and not the elected official themselves.

Please keep calls short and polite. After all, we are asking for their help.

To call Secretary of Health Kathleen Sebelius, call 1-202-690-7000

To call the White House switchboard and reach your members of Congress, call 1-202-224-3121.

If you do not know who your elected officials are go to: http://www.votesmart.org/index.htm

PLEASE HELP AND MAKE THE CALLS - lives of your fellow American men, women and children with HIV and AIDS are counting on your help. An American life is a terrible thing to waste!
