The supply of costume jewelery, single earrings, and fancy buttons known as bling for angel decoration is running low.
Some people find it easy to collect from their choir, church or other community group.
If you have some to donate, please contact Vic Parsons by email or phone 250-472-6499. Thanks.

Help Wanted

We are looking for some specific volunteers in Victoria to increase the distribution of angels. Here are the brief job requirements:
  1. Find new small shops to carry a small rack of angels, especially in areas not already covered. Western Communities would be welcome. Oak Bay and James Bay have good coverage already. Venues include hairdressers and an immunization travel clinic: the current list is on our website. Other volunteers will supply the angels and collect money later if required.

  2. Research and contact new low-cost marketing venues for occasional tables like fairs and recreation centres.

  3. Store and distribute a small amount of angel-making supplies when Vic Parsons is out of town for a few weeks. Should be in one of the core municipalities.

  4. Store materials for occasional sale venues, including a Rubbermaid tub, fold-up table, signs, and a canopy which folds to smaller than a golf bag and has wheels. Should be in one of the core municipalities.
There are many components to making AIDS Angels work, so if you can help with one of these positions, we would really appreciate it.

Training, letters and brochures will be provided where needed. If you have any questions or want more details, please send an email to Thanks for assisting.
