This year Beyond Vanillia is proud to Support Team Friendly DFW as our Charity of Choice.
All of the tips from our Lip Sync Battle plus a portion of the proceeds from the silent auction will be donated to Team Friendly DFW

Team Friendly DFW (TFDFW) is a member of the Team Friendly Network, which is an extension of the Mr. Friendly campaign. Mr. Friendly is designed to be the New Face of HIV Awareness. This grassroots movement, started in 2008, focuses on “Reducing the Stigma of HIV through Conversation, Education and HIV Testing Partnerships.”

TFDFW was founded on September 5, 2015, incorporated on October 13, 2015 and achieved 501c3 status on April 20, 2016.

TFDFW is championing the mission of Reducing the Stigma of HIV in the greater DFW (Dallas-Fort Worth) area through one-on-one conversations and interactive activities designed to recalibrate the community on HIV-Friendly conversations. We firmly believe that conversations lead to educational opportunities which directly result in more testing for HIV and increased quality of life for people living with HIV. All of these things collectively reduce HIV stigma and contribute to the decrease of HIV in our community.
