It is with much gratitude that we take this opportunity to thank each and every person that made their way out to support us and the Njiapanda Centre for Street Kids at Soprano's on March 26th. The fundraiser was a huge success; ranging from the extensive amount of auction items donated from friends and local businesses, to money raised for the 50/50 draw....and of course, lest us not forget the 60 pounder of Greygoose vodka draw! It was heart warming to see the amount of people that attended our event, and great fun and laughs were shared by all! For those businesses that generously donated goods and services, thank you! This night wouldn't have been so successful without your contributions.
We managed to raise $3000.25, which was $500 more than we had anticipated. We are eager to get overseas and start making progress at the centre, as these funds will go a very long way in this poverty stricken area. We will be continuing to accept donations through the website while we are away, and also want to acknowledge those who have already contributed.
It is only a matter of hours now until we will be soaring off to the other side! Feelings of excitement and anxiousness are at an all time high as final preparations make their way! But it is also a bitter sweet feeling that hovers over you when venturing off into foreign territory, leaving the ones you hold close to your heart back home. In any case, friends are family will remain in our thoughts and before we know it a party will be commencing upon our return! Three and a half months is peanuts for the old seasoned travellers!
