An Opportunity to Help!

Then the righteous will answer him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?'
And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.'"
(Matthew 25.35-40 ESV)

Hi All,

I'm training for the Chicago Triathlon this summer with The Team to End AIDS (T2).

I'm raising money for T2 in exchange for their training services and I need everyones help to continue with training.  I'm asking for help from my readers in raising funds to help this great organization.

T2 uses this money to provide services to those with HIV/AIDS and support research to look for a cure.
HIV/AIDS used to be a death sentence to those afflicted, but because of research and the tireless efforts of people around the world, HIV and even AIDS are controllable and those afflicted have a longer brighter future.  

I've met a lot of great people on this blog.  We all have different beliefs and opinions, we have different ideas on how we should be living this life on this planet.  But I think one thing we can all agree on is that we should help those in need.  We, as human beings have a need and an obligation to help the sick and needy.  The quote above should ring true regardless of your belief.
As an Atheist I believe in it's message.  Not for helping man in the name of Jesus but in the name of humanity.

  1. I'm in the midst of a move so I was only able to give a token amount but I think it's great what you're doing (the blog, the charity, and entering a triathlon). My wife and I completed our first triathlon this summer and absolutely loved it. Good luck!
