Round Up Your Change for AIDS LifeCycle in February!

Our friend Terry Asten Bennett, who is the owner/manager of Cliff’s Variety in the Castro, another great old-time variety store in San Francisco, asked us if we’d support her 2nd year as Bus Mom on the AIDS/LifeCycle event. We said we’d do more – and ask our customers if they will too! So, this month we’re asking our customers to let us know if they want to round up their change at our registers. 100% of your change will go to local research and efforts to end AIDS. As of mid-month, 1,042 customers have rounded up their change to raise over $430 to date in February for Terry’s AIDS/Lifecycle fundraising efforts.

January’s Round Up efforts for the Nick Traina Foundation were $1,022.72 – thank you dear customers. The Nick Traina Foundation was founded in 1998 by our store’s long-time supporter and best-selling author Danielle Steel as a legacy to her son who lost his life to manic-depression, when he committed suicide at nineteen.

Thank you for helping us help our community!
