This diary is about my fundraising effort for the Hill Country Ride for AIDS, but if you know me, you know that I usually use music in these diaries, so:

So, U2 is out with a new song & if you download it during the "Big Game" & 24 hours after, it is free & a donation goes to Red, which goes to fighting AIDS in Africa.

You’ve got until Feb 3 11:59pm EST to download #NewU2Song free & $1 goes to fight AIDS w/ @RED http://smarturl.it/...  pic.twitter.com/9wzlLGzunB
and now on to me talking about the Ride, and enjoying some music - although if you want to skip the diary & just donate to help people with HIV & AIDS in Austin, here's my Hill Country Ride page

I've only had the song for a few minutes as I write this, but it is a great addition to my training-inspiration music. The Hill Country Ride for AIDS raises money for local organizations that serve people with HIV & AIDS. I've done it every year it has existed. The cause is, of course, a fantastic one; but the Ride itself is wonderful & beautiful - it is one day of the way we wish the world was.

And my beautiful boys, without knowing anything of the Ride, have captured it perfectly:

there is no them, there's only us

We're not separate from each other -- the people who these agencies serve, they're us. And there is no "them" to do the helping, there's only us. Please donate at my Hill Country Ride page, and let's do some helping

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
