Welcome to the Personal Page for Jerry Suarez
As many of you know this cause is very personal to me having lost both my father and my brother to AIDS. This year I am raising money in support of The NAMES Project/AIDS Memorial Quilt who are based in Atlanta. I started to volunteer for The NAMES Project shortly after the death of my father and remained with the organization through various capacities. Beginning as a volunteer then forming the South Florida Chapter and from there, I became a quilt display coordinator where I had the opportunity to bring sections of the Quilt to many parts of the US as well as to Russia, South Africa and Australia. I eventually joined the board of the NAMES Project and also assisted in organizing the 1996 display of the Quilt in its entirety on the National Mall in Washington DC. This was the first display that was attended by a sitting President and Vice-President.
It was the NAMES Project that helped me deal with the loss of my father and my brother who would volunteer for any AIDS fundraisers that I was organizing until his death in 1991.
It has been several years since I have reached out for support, but this is very important to me personally and would appreciate any donation you could give. I will be a virtual walker this year but I am looking for your help in supporting the organization that has supported me all these years. Atlanta is now home to my father and brother so this is for them.
Also, know that your donation will be matched 100% due to the generous contribution of an anonymous donor.
This year there will be 285 separate displays with 1/3 of the entire Quilt on display for World AIDS Day. Please visit www.aidsquilt.org for additional information on those displays.
People from all walks of life will help to change the story of HIV in our lifetime.
Thank you for supporting me with your donation.
