Eina!

Baffers,

If you can put down in writing that you played a whole match in said uncomfortable attire, you will leave me no choice but to let my follow up donation stand at R 100.00. :roll:

Unfortunately I cannot say that... The "disgusting thing" was only visible momentarily (three minutes). Any longer and I would have had to have a retrieval opperation of unmentionalbe parts and I would have had a voice in the higher octaves...

Sadly (and thats a very objective sadly) a whole match was not played. It would have been to much for the people to bear anyway.

So think of it as a kindness to humanity that the yellow thing was not worn any longer ;)

Well... It was done with a sufficient amount of trepidation. When I started it really was kindof like a joke but when the pledges reached about R 7500 I figured there is no way of pulling out any more :)

Lets just say if it wasnt for the anti poaching cause it wouldn't happen :)

Of course a BIG thanks has to go to all the guys who have supported the effort. This might come back an haunt me in a job interview one day ;)

Guys

This is a just a BIG thank you to all those who have pledged and / or donated to the mankini thingy :)
We have a cut off date of end April so you still have till then to get your donations in.

Even if you couldnt donate to this "endeavour" thank you so much for the moral (or should I say imoral :twisted: ) support.

It always fun to work with the forum. Its all for a good cause and its been a blast.

You guys are the bestest :)

EDIT: - ADDON Once we reach the cut of date we will give a report back on how much the "horrible thing" raised.
