As some of you will know, I have taken part in the Pride & Remembrance Run, in Toronto, each summer for close to 10 years. Even while battling my; Congestive Heart Failure and numerous other cardiac afflictions, I was out there every year. One summer, I was out there the day after being released from hospital, having just had a surgical procedure on my heart.


I didn’t do the Pride and Remembrance Run for the tan, although some years I did pretty good in that department, and a couple years it was cold, wet and miserable. I did the Pride and Remembrance Run because even as the things I was dealing with were super shitty, someone was going through something worse. A lot worse.


I wasn’t happy with my performance this year in fund raising. I had a host of other obligations, and whilst on hiatus from publishing and podcasting I lost touch with my friends and audience. This made it hard for me to get the word out.


So here I am again; trying to do something to create change.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_btn title=”VISIT THE TURNIP CARES SHOP” style=”outline” shape=”square” color=”black” size=”lg” align=”right” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fturnipteez.com%2Fproduct-category%2Fcares%2F|||”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”74666″ img_size=”full” alignment=”right” onclick=”custom_link” link=”https://turnipteez.com/product-category/cares/” css=”.vc_custom_1571524445413{padding-left: 75px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Meet; Linus, Chartier & Mullpepper. The first 3 of my #turnipstache series to be released and the first to lend their “stache” to the cause of raising money for HIV Charities.


HIV is an illness that we can ALL take a part in eradicating.


You may not be a brilliant scientist but you can do your part.


You can donate and educate. Educate yourself, then others. Stigma against HIV and those living with HIV is a massive obstacle. Imagine how much more energy we could focus on curing HIV if we weren’t all hating on people with HIV!


The #TURNIPSTACHE FIGHT HIV Mug will be available from today until the end of December.


$2 from the sale of each mug will be donated* to a local HIV Charity here in Toronto. I won’t name it for legal reasons right now…but if you want a hint; I have done a story on their new “home” and they also “live” in the same neighbourhood.


$1 from the sale of each mug will be donated* to a major International HIV Organization that has a super big “world wide” day at the beginning of December.


If you have any questions at all; please feel free to drop me a line directly, right here.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”74627″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” link=”https://turnipteez.com/product-category/cares/”][vc_empty_space][vc_btn title=”VISIT THE TURNIP CARES SHOP” style=”outline” shape=”square” color=”black” size=”lg” align=”right” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fturnipteez.com%2Fproduct-category%2Fcares%2F|||”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
