The Charity: A small group of volunteers is working on this project with you. MGI is the charity arm of the International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival www.gaytheatre.ie. 100% of the funds raised by you will go directly to the nominated HIV/Aids charity the New Fill Project run by St James Hospital in Dublin. To date MGI has donated over 100,000 euros to HIV and gay causes.
Briefly: The new combination drugs for HIV are very successful – people can live normal and healthy lives for 30+ years with the virus. There is one major side effect that can impact on some people – wastage in the muscles of the face, so that a person is medically healthy but looks seriously ill. Collagen injections restore the facial tissue and the dignity of the patient to resume a full life in society. The State pays for a course of three – in many cases this is not enough for full muscle restoration, so more injections are needed – your monies pay for these. Last year 73 people benefited from the monies raised – it is great work and we are proud to support this charity.
The Fundraising. There is no fee to participate in MGI as instead venues and community groups to support their candidate in helping the fundraising and in supporting their Mr Gay in participating in the Dublin Final. Ideas include asking people to support the HIV charity by sponsorship (swim, shave, dare, run) – we provide the cards to you. You can do an event in your group or venue like a table quiz, auction, race night, slave auction, run a mini marathon, buckets on the counter, a donation from the entrance fee, raffle etc. “
