Give OUT on May 9th

Give Out Day_2013On May 9th, the LGBT and allied communities will mark the first ever National Give OUT Day, a new national initiative that aims to mobilize thousands of individual donors on a single day across the country to give in support of the LGBTQ nonprofit community. Give OUT Day is an exciting opportunity to mobilize our entire community to support groups, like the National Minority AIDS Council (NMAC), who are working every day to advance the rights, health and dignity of all LGBT Americans.

Join us by Giving OUT on May 9th and urging your friends to do the same!

Not only is this an opportunity for you to mobilize your social networks to support our critical work, but the organizations that receive the greatest number of donations will win an additional contribution from the Razoo Foundation! The first place organization gets $5,000!

The fight against HIV/AIDS has always been about more than the search for medicine or a cure. It has been a battle for human dignity. To demonstrate that each life, regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, nation of origin, or religion has inherent value. From the beginning, this epidemic has taken the largest toll on our most marginalized communities. From gay men and transgender women, to injection drug users and people of color, those who are most often shut out of our nation’s halls of affluence and power are also the most vulnerable to a whole host of health challenges, including HIV.

For over 26 years, NMAC has fought every day to realize the vision of an AIDS-free generation, while promoting greater health equity for the LGBT community and people of color. Support from individuals has always been critical to our work and will continue to be essential as we continue to work toward an end to this epidemic.

Please join us on May 9th and Give OUT in support of NMAC and other groups working in and for the LGBTQ community!

Yours in the struggle,
Paul A. Kawata
Executive Director, NMAC
