Dear POSITIVELY AWARE Reader,
The current issue of POSITIVELY AWARE is a thought-provoking exploration of how communities of faith have grappled with HIV and how individual faith and spirituality have provided some with a path to strength and empowerment.
Faith means different things to different people. This month’s POSITIVELY AWARE contributors highlight these different perspectives, creating a fascinating mosaic of how different views of faith and spirituality have confronted a common challenge.
Thank you for having faith in POSITIVELY AWARE. For almost 30 years, the magazine has been a leading educational and informational resource for people living with and affected by HIV. In fact, it is the most widely read HIV treatment journal in the U.S. produced by a not-for-profit organization, Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN). Having recently received the most current issue of the magazine, you can see the value that this publication brings to those living with and affected by HIV.
POSITIVELY AWARE is one of the most informative and consumer-friendly HIV journals available. Keeping current on the latest research, clinical data, and HIV and HCV medications, as well as lifestyle and advocacy news, is important to those living with and affected by HIV. We remain committed to publishing the “go-to” magazine for what one needs to know to live the best, healthiest life possible.
Our current issue includes some inspiring stories of how communities and individuals of faith have mobilized to help others. If you are inspired and helped by POSITIVELY AWARE’s mission and content, would you consider making a donation to help us bring important news and health information to people impacted by HIV across this country?
We invite you to be a part of this mission. Your support helps us reach people with HIV treatment education, inspirational stories of survivorship, and health information that can become a lifeline to readers who write to us every month. Every issue of Positively Aware reaches 100,000 readers and nearly 20,000 website visitors. Most notably, POSITIVELY AWARE is free to anyone who is HIV positive or unable to pay.
Your donation has impact across the year. A $30 tax-deductible contribution enables us to produce and deliver the magazine to a reader for a full year. A $100 contribution will cover the costs of your subscription and the subscriptions of two other people who lack the means to contribute but rely on POSITIVELY AWARE as an important lifeline of HIV-focused information and stories. You can contribute by making a gift online at positivelyaware.com/donate or you can make a donation by phone or mail (designate “PA” in notes section of your check) using our address and contact information below.
Thank you for your support of POSITIVELY AWARE. Your own faith—in whatever form it takes—in our mission means a great deal to the countless individuals and families who open these pages to be inspired, informed, and feel connected.
