NEW YORK, April 22 /PRNewswire/ --Spaces That Inspire™ Virtual home mega store, www.SpacesThatInspire.com, has pledged its support for AIDS Walk New York by donating 10% of all proceeds that use a coupon code "teamjason" (without the quotes). Our marketing plan is based on helping fundraising for community based organizations. For every purchase made through our website using the "teamjason" coupon code, the customer will receive 10% off their purchase and 10% will go to the AIDS Walk New York.

AIDS Walk New York (AWNY) is celebrating its 25th year in 2010 and continues to be the largest HIV/AIDS fundraising/awareness event in the world.  Last year's event featured more than 2,000 registered teams with 45,000 walkers who collectively raised almost US $7 million.  This year's event will take place, rain or shine, in New York City's Central Park on Sunday, May 16th.  AWNY benefits GMHC and dozens of other HIV/AIDS organizations.

Jason Shaw has been participating in the event for four years and has raised more than $20,000.  Fundraising alone, however, is not all that inspires him to walk.  "AIDS Walk New York does more than just raise funds for HIV/AIDS.  It also raises awareness," says Shaw.  "In spite of everything we know about this disease, young people continue to be infected at alarming rates which tells us there is a disconnect somewhere in our communities.  AWNY provides an opportunity for us to come together and affect positive change -- change that can reduce the number of infections in underserved communities, and change that will hopefully reduce the stigma and marginalization that people living with this disease continue to face."
