My Life in Paradise

because I only wish I could make this sh*t up…

AIDS Walk sans ducks and roosters and chickens…

on March 14, 2012

Sorry Mr. Duckles – I’m not inviting you to come with me.

So  I used to be in marketing and event design.  God it sucked.  I still do some work for Mr.L and that work doesn’t suck.  Mostly because I can boss him around.  No really I wouldn’t do that, but we do eat cupcakes and chinese food while working and take trips to see Cirque as my reward.  Hence – working for Mr.L doesn’t suck – except that I don’t live in Oakland anymore so I eat far less chinese food and haven’t had a cupcake in FOREVER.  That’s ok – the phone isn’t as good, but it’s still good.

Anyway – what’s my point.  I volunteer here in Hawaii for the Big Island HIV/AIDS Foundation and I help with marketing.  I got so busy helping everyone else I forget to ask people to sponsor me!!  HIHAF is amazing.  Here’s why…

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to live on an island with limited medical care and get sick come to Hawaii.  The whole island is considered rural in terms of medical and we do in fact have to wait months for Dr. appointments.  Hence the importance of HIHAF.  We have an RN on staff, a food pantry and specialists who help clients obtain medications, housing and just about anything they need.

We’ve decided we need and AIDS walk so and AIDS walk we have created.  On April 21st we are doing a 2 mile walk at a beautiful park in Hilo.  Feel like being my hero and donating?  I’ll send you a rooster a thank you note and I’ll even kiss you if I see you soon.

Here’s the link to donate.

You have to put in my name “Sarah Spalding” to navigate to my page…  Ladyface and Dr.Evil already donated.  You know you want to be next!!
