#WorldAIDSDay - Recon members raise over £12,800 for GMFA
from Recon News
30 January 2016
During the tail end of 2015 we ran our annual World AIDS Day campaign to raise money for HIV awareness charity GMFA. We're so proud of our members for taking part and raising £12,826.73 ($18,528.15/€17,046) for this incredible and deserving cause.
Recently Matthew Hodson, the CEO of GMFA came by the Recon office to accept a large cheque, representing the generosity of our members. Here's what Matthew had to say:
"At GMFA we know that by providing honest, frank sexual health information to gay and bisexual men we can improve sexual safety and challenge HIV related stigma. Thanks to the astonishing generosity and support that GMFA received from Recon and its members over World AIDS Day we will continue to provide smart, sex-positive sexual health information to gay and bisexual men, all around the world, via GMFA's website and the FS online magazine. A heartfelt thank you to you all."
Everyone at Team Recon would also like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all our members who donated towards this campaign. Every penny has gone to GMFA and will be used to help them in their important HIV awareness raising mission.
