Caracal and I had a thought that it would be a lovely gesture to give every child in Welkom school (which caters for the local community as well as for the SANParks children), a small present this Christmas....

Thank you Scouter, Caracal and all the 'mites doing small things with great love :gflower: :D :clap:

What do you all think of asking the children to do a decent size, colourful artwork expressing their feelings after receiving the gifts from our hearts. We can then even reproduce this as handouts, make a flyer (asking all visitors to "our park" for a small contibution) or auction or raffle the original work of art. All proceeds from this goes back to the children. This way they can also feel like contributing and doing more than just living on hand outs. We can ask the school to coordinate. I am sure that if the material to create this is not freely available, we can quickly organise something..... :hmz:

WOW!! What a wonderfull idea! Unfortunately I only read about the Xmas present drive after all the children were already allocated. :-(

For those of us who missed out on this one, can't we maybe looking at getting some supplies for the Welkom school. I'm thinking in the line of stationary, educational posters for the classrooms, etc. OR whatever else is needed at the school. Jannie, please give some suggestions in this regard - if you think it is a feasible idea.

We will be in KTP from 11 Dec - still in time to deliver for the new school year!
