Bowienetter Alboreto Reaches Charity Walk Target

on May 07, 2003

And mountain magic heavy hung...

In a kind of follow up to yesterdays item about the generosity of BowieNetters when it comes to donating to charity, I thought I'd give you an update on BowieNetter Alboreto's charity walk in aid of Amnesty International. Unfortunately, due to the SARS outbreak, Alboreto's Great Wall Of China walk has been cancelled, but instead he will be off in a couple of days to walk in Cuba. Here's an edited excerpt from a piece posted on his website at the end of last month:

Bowienetters Are A Good Bunch!

on May 06, 2003

Helping one another...

It seems the generosity of BowieNetters knows no bounds. Within two days of posting our piece (05/05/03 NEWS: SPONSOR BOWIENETTERS IN AIDS WALK NEW YORK) about BowieNetters Jim Hyde (aka Floidoip) and Kimberly Smith (aka Chamomile) entering for the Aids Walk New York on May 18th, you had boosted Jim's funds past his $1,000 target to $1,110 and helped Kimberly reach 70 per cent of her $500 target!

With eleven days to go, there's still plenty of time to donate if you want to.

David and Iman were out looking gorgeous again last night at The Film Society of Lincoln Center Gala Tribute to Susan Sarandon. The event took place at the Avery Fisher Hall, at the Lincoln Center in New York. David had this to say about the evening:

"Great tribute to Susan last night. We popped in only for a short while, I took a break from recording and then I went back to finish off a lyric.

Sponsor Bowienetters In Aids Walk New York

on May 05, 2003

Leeza and Jim enjoying a pre-walk group hug recently.

And they walk in two's or three's or more...

Back on World Aids Day in December of last year, we posted the moving story of BowieNetter Jim Hyde's (aka Floidoip) 21 years of living with HIV/AIDS. (12/01/02 NEWS: WORLD AIDS DAY - A MESSAGE FROM JIM) It was a truly heartbreaking piece that highlighted the dreadful statistics behind the virus, and if you didn't read it then, you really should go take a look now.

Now Jim has got together with BowieNetters Leeza and Kimberly Smith (aka Chamomile) for the Aids Walk New York on May 18th.
