Our end-of-year donations are in and we are so proud to announce the results! We have about $6,000 in our bank account now!
So how does that translate to aid for children in need?
We now have enough money to buy school medical and sports kits for all 22 schools in the Knysna Education Trust. We also have enough to buy supply backpacks for 99 students!
Our goal is to provide all 22 school kits and 350 backpacks, which would be backpacks for 1 in 4 children in the schools. Now we're working toward filling those other 251 backpacks!
Thank you so, so, so much to our donors who have been so generous! We're a little more than 6 months away from our trip and $4,000 from our goal!
Happy Holidays! Our first ever donation campaign - Kits for Kids - is off and running. We are proud to report that generous donors have sponsored THREE school kits and TWO backpacks so far! We are so excited! We are inching closer and closer to our goal every day. Right now we are 45 percent of the way there! We hope to break the halfway mark by the end of the year, but we need your help! Please consider sponsoring a backpack for a child or a kit for an entire school. Your donations make a difference in children's lives!
