Shoutout to everyone especially the mental health advocates and HIV advocates!
I am selling one of my zines ‘Running for HIV/AIDS and other essays’ for 100 PHP. This will be sold either online (bulk orders only!) and during the #BLTX9 on December 13 (Zero82 Lokal Bar, Davao City, 6 pm to 12 midnight) and December 14 (Sikat, Tomas Morato; limited copies only). We can also do meetups around Gensan or Koronadal City. PM me if you’re interested to pre-order.
100% of its profit will be donated for the HIV/AIDS Core Team (HACT) here in South Cotabato (e.g.: financial assistance for the people with HIV, like their transportation, Xray, vitamins, those that will not be subsidized by the government, etc etc etc). It attempts to counter the stigma surrounding health issues like HIV, clinical depression, suicidal ideation and many others. Some personal essays tackling my own bouts of terrible depression, anxiety disorder, and suicidal ideation were also included in this zine.
This is not about me though, and I never claim this to be groundbreaking. All I ever want to do is to help through writing and raising funds, and I know you would also like to help.
So that’s it. Your 100 php is in good hands. And there’s a short quiz after you read the zine. Let me exit to finish the other zine I promised to sell so I can buy a hydro fla—
Let’s celebrate the World AIDS Day 2019 through education!
