World AIDS Day 2011

Jaimes Jaimes
Hey guys! It’s that time of year when we are all looking around, feeling thankful for the joy and the people in our lives. It’s also that time of year when EdenFantasys joins up with the AIDS Service Center of New York City to support World AIDS Day, December 1st. There are many things that we can be joyful about, and there are things that we can support in the hopes of one day bringing joy, and in this case, a cure, for the others around us. We have a few really exciting plans in place that we need your help with!

Fundraiser:
In an effort to get our fabulous community involved with ASC work, we are bringing back our wildly successful Twitter fundraiser! To help raise money, all you have to do is retweet our dedicated hashtag, #WAD2011 sometime between Nov 25th and Dec 1st. If our hashtag, #WAD2011, gets 1,000 tweets from 1,000 people, we’ll give ASC NYC $1,000! We managed to meet our goal last year, so I know we can make it this year!

Copy and paste: Support #WAD2011! @EdenFantasys is donating $1 to @ASCNYC for every retweet! Support ASC and 20 years of positive change!

World AIDS Day Support Video:
EdenFantasys will be building another montage video to premier on World AIDS Day! The video will feature photos and short video messages from the EF staff, as well as our community. You are the true faces of EdenFantasys and our commitment to sex-positive and sexual health, so we’d love to show you off to the world!

What you can share:
Short and sweet statements of support! Submit a photo or video of you holding a sign with a message or even just a red ribbon – something pertinent to World AIDS Day. No videos longer than 30 seconds, please. We want to include as many clips from as many people as we can, so it’s important to keep it on point. Also, no need to “produce” the video clips with credits or intros – we will add it in the complete montage! W

Videos: Film a short video of yourself delivering a short message or holding a sign or banner that conveys your message. Feel free to be creative with any sort of visual that conveys your message of support. You don't have to show your face to contribute, but are welcome to do so if you choose.

Photos: Just take a photo or two of yourself holding a sign that conveys your message, or with a fun visual that conveys your message of support. You don't have to show your face to contribute, but are welcome to do so if you choose. JPEG’s only please!

How to share:

Do NOT upload to Eden Tube.

Uploading is SO easy! Go to this link and you can upload either video or your photos (JPEG’s).

*Please use WAD2011 in the FILE NAME, and make sure you fill out the description with the name you want credited (real name or handle, your choice!), any sentiments or a message you want to share; which we might add as text on your clip or photos or use in the credits of the video.

And that’s it!

Deadline:

World AIDS Day is December 1st. Our deadline for submitting video clips and photos is November 27th.

We are all very excited about putting together a positive community message in support of World AIDS Day! You might recognize a few of the faces from the EF staff, too! Send us your own messages and let’s blow this thing out of the water!

This is one of my favorite times of year. I really love being able to do something for ASC every year -- they do so much good for so many people every day.

Don't forget, you guys, that you can also write something for EdenCafe if you have a story to share. We're accepting posts for World AIDS Day week from now through the end of November so get writing!

Also, for those of you who may not have seen them before, here is a link to last year's video and to the video tour we did of ASC NYC last year, as well as interviews with Guy and Debra and Sharen Duke from ASC.

Are you motivated yet?

Hey guys! We just want to say thank you for a wonderfully successful week celebrating and supporting World AIDS Day!

This year we teamed up with Wet and Evolved Novelties to help raise funds for the AIDS Service Center of NYC. Together, we will be donating $700!

In addition to this donation, we also hosted a Twitter-thon, where YOU helped raise awareness and support for ASC with your retweets of our hashtag. We had a goal of 1000 tweets for $1000, and even though we didn't quite make it, EdenFantasys is going to match our tweets and donate the full $1000 to ASC! That makes $1700 in donations to ASC and their twenty years of change. That is certainly something to be proud of, and we'd like to thank each and every one of you for helping us reach these goals.

I encourage you to head on over to EdenCafe and Sexis, to check out the articles posted for WAD awareness! There is information and inspiration, and behind each article was an author with a message of support!

Last but not least, check out the World AIDS Day video montage, presented by the staff of EdenFantasys!

Once again, I'd like to thank you, our community, for joining us in celebrating World AIDS Day. With your support, we will be making a difference for an organization that has been making positive changes in the HIV/AIDS community for over 20 years! Can't wait to do it again in 2012!
