Wrapping up: the “TROUBLE’S HERE TO STAY” Fundraiser

Jenny_Thankyounote_1smallDear TROUBLE fans

A gigantic THANK YOU to everyone who donated so generously, passed on the mail, or even showed interest and spurred us on!

We have received monthly commitments for R 2 414,00 (ca. 160 €* – for 12 months!) Almost all of our sponsors from last year are continuing, and some new ones have joined the ranks. Admittedly, we’re a little short of our goal, which was to raise R 3 500,00 per month.

BUT the astounding one-off donations of R18 378 (1 209 €) far exceeded the R12 000 goal that we had set ourselves!

In total, we’ve raised R47 346 (3 117 €) for Jenny for 2018.

Again, hats off and thank you to everyone who was involved, also –  and especially – from Jenny.

In case you just did’t get around to contributing and actually wanted to – don’t worry!! It’s not too late!! Just write an e-mail to fundraisingfortrouble[at]gmail.com, and we’ll send you the banking details.

Any donation, at any time, no matter how small, will find it’s way to Jenny and will help.

Jenny needs only R 12 726 (838 €) more to cover all her foreseeable
expenses for  2018 – we are confident that this money will trickle in over the next few weeks and months.

2017 prize draw
Now, for those of you who are wondering about *the Prize Draw* that took place in Berlin (in a rather comfortable, homely setting, as seen above), here are the details of the winners, who have already been informed and in some cases have even received their prizes.

The 5 packets of home-baked cookies (Biscotti with almonds and aniseed – I would say they were very yummy, but I don’t want to blow my own trumpet…) went to:

And our grand prize, the high-quality-super-comfortable-washable-with-anti-slip-knobs-at-the-bottom “Gästepantoffelset” (set of guest slippers) went to Anne!!!

Congratulations to all of our winners!

Till next time – thank you and stay out of TROUBLE!!

Friend, fan and fundraising co-ordinator.

Update / Funding deadline extended by 3 days.

Dear TROUBLE fans

Firstly, we want to thank our generous sponsors, who have commited R 1000 ( about 60 Euros) a month for the coming year – a total of R 12 000. THANK YOU!! This is a wonderful start.

Unfortunately, that leaves us quite a bit short of our goal, which is R 3 500 in regular contributions and R  12 000 in one-offs.

Now, we know a lot of people have been busy with Christmas preparations and parties, and so we’ve decided to extend the fundraiser deadline until December 13th.

This gives you 3 more days to make a contribution!! Best to do so now!! If you still need the details, please write an e-mail to fundraisingfortrouble[at]gmail.com.

And by the way, for the people in Germany, here’s a picture of what is in the hat for the lucky draw…homemade cookies (though, of course, we’ll bake some fresh) and the grand prize: a set of high quality slippers for visitors. Get your name in the draw today!
