This is true, Duke. I still have fond memories of our first fundraising event. :dance:
In October it'll be 2 years ago. And I think therefore it's time to get this Project to an end. :thumbs_up:

Here is my final plea:

Once all outstanding amounts have been paid and confirmed or in some case where the
have been paid ages ago, but not confirmed for our project yet, I'll pick up the tap from
there up to the target sum of R22 000 that we have been given when we first started.
With all the pledges still outstanding we're talking about an amount of approx. R2 000
that I'll have to pay.

But this pledge has a sell-by-date which is the 24th October 2013 as this marks the date
of the very first fundraiser for the Mobile Webcam Project.


Now let's get paying up - that includes myself for the African Lady, obviously :lol:
