holiday giving: gift cards for DC residents living with HIV

Think of giving a small gift card to someone living with AIDS this holiday season. The next time you are shopping at CVS, Target, Giant or other retailer, think of picking up a gift card or two to help someone who needs some support this holiday season. Tranquil Space and the Karma Yoga program are sponsoring a gift drive for low-income adults living with the virus. A small gift of a gift card, winter accessory, cosmetic, or other small token may significantly brighten someone’s holiday. The gifts will go directly to the individuals that Tranquil Space teacher kevin Waldorf-Cruz supports in his work at the Austin Center for Health and Living at the Whitman-Walker Clinic. It is a cause close to all of our hearts, and we hope you can support it.


Kevin has sent a little more information and a “wish list” for the project that goes beyond gift cards:

  • Giant, Safeway, Whole Foods, Target, CVS, Rite Aid (suggested $20 max per card)
