A Happy New Year & Thanks to our many supporters!

30 Dec

BABES is ending 2011 with a bang!  We’re very close to bringing in over $30K in support over the last two months including support from Macy’s Passport Fund and individual donors.  This last year has brought many challenges, and we just want to say THANK YOU to our many supporters.  There’s still time to donate online.

We  recognize and appreciate the countless volunteer hours that keep BABES running.  Whether you cooked a meal or facilitated support group, you made a difference for HIV+ women who often face violence at home, poverty and other huge life challenges in addition to HIV. 

We recognize the generous donors who believe in the importance of women having a place for support, advocacy and education and who recognize that HIV cannot be prevented by keeping silent.  Thank you. 

2012 brings many exciting events, some new and some old.  Our January Calendar features info about the January Educational Dinner, One Day Retreat and HHS-sponsored Taking Action: Women’s Health and Wellness Fair. 

We hope that you’ll continue to stay in touch with us and let us know if you’ve moved or have a new phone number.  If you’re hoping to get more involved here are three opportunities:

  • Attend an ongoing training to become a peer volunteer (open to positive women).
  • Join WHACAN!   A newly forming statewide advocacy group called Washington HIV/AIDS Community Advocacy Network (WHACAN) is recruiting advocates, allies and consumers to join. We anticipate HIV/AIDS program service cuts in our state in 2012. This is an opportunity to mobilize to maintain essential services for people living with HIV/AIDS in WA! All are welcome.
  • Join the BABES Advisory Board to provide important imput on BABES programs and help increase resources! Talk to Nicole for more info.

Happy New Year to all!
