Everything will run smoothly! :twisted:
So that is 5 kids per month, 60 kids per year!
Thanx Micetta! :dance:

If it can help not only teach the kids something new, but also make them open their eyes to nature and the natural treasures of their country, it is is certainly worth it :thumbs_up: I did mention this as one of the possible tasks of the HRs, in one of my naughty posts on the forum :wink: I am happy to see that it is an initiative of the VHRs :clap: :clap:

You can count on me for a monthly contribution. I think this is a really wonderful initiative :D . This is our future and who knows what might grow out of this.

:clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Because my income changes from month to month, I cannot commit a fixed amount. I will be making my first donation this morning. :thumbs_up:

We would like to sponsor two children for a year (one for each grandson). Should we donate monthly or in a lump sum?

To every one that pledged and made a donation, a great big thank you :clap: :clap:

This is a genuine worthy cause and we have the backing of the Marakele region of the Sanparks Honorary Rangers.

Any contribution will make a difference. Speak to your boss and get him to commit to a corporate pledge and if you are the boss ...... what's holding you back :huh:
To every one that has not donated yet please find it in your heart to help a child, a mere R 20-00 can make a difference. Just think of it for the price of a coke and a pie you can change the life of a child and contribute to conservation, Cheap at double the price :D

Only by educating the youth, and I mean ALL the young ones, can we ensure that our descendants will be able to enjoy nature as much as we do.
Adventure is out there. Go find it
