From Dustin Brookshire

The 2007 AIDS Walk in Atlanta is approaching in five days, and I am excited to be participating because the walk will benefit twelve organizations, which I will list at the end of the entry. In these last few days I am pumping up my fundraising efforts. You can help out and have the chance to win a lovely prize. A number of established poets were generous, thoughtful, and kind to donate autographed books with the comment, “Thanks for supporting the 2007 AIDS Walk,” for me to use for fundraising efforts.

How it works:
1. Visit Team Truvy’s AIDS Walk page by clicking HERE.

2. Once on the AIDS Walk site, click on “make a donation,” which is located above the “AIDS Walk Atlanta Goal Watch” and “My AIDS Walk Donors.” )You should see a page with a header reading “2007 AIDS Walk Atlanta;” below it will read “Thanks for giving on behalf of Dustin Brookshire.”)

3. Enter the amount you wish to donate. (Remember, all donations are tax deductible.)
Every $5 donation earns you a chance to win an autographed book. A donation $50 earns you 15 chances to win a book by select poets. If you donate $100 you can pick the book you want from the list below!

4. Once you’ve donated drop a line on the blog or send an email to

5. The drawing will occur following the AIDS Walk. Poet Montgomery Maxton will create a Youtube video announcing the winners.
