The prize draw always involves a lot of excitement.
Weeks of pondering what the perfect grand prize might be. Something, everyone will want, but no-one is likely to have…
Then, I had to get the “I love TROUBLE” design for the pens to the printers on time.
There were cookies to bake…
Then I burned the first batch and had to bake some more….
Now it was time to put all the names into the hat (and no, we were not sponsored by h&m, that just happens to be where the hat comes from…)
And then, the exciting moment came. My little helpers took turns drawing names out of the hat.
And here are the names of our lucky winners:
5 packets of fresh-from-the-oven home baked chocolate orange cookies go to:
3 “I love TROUBLE” pens go to:
And the grand prize: the supercool magnetic fridge frame magnets goes to:
Congratulations to all of our winners!
I will be in touch with you over the next few days about your prizes!! (And, there’s even a small surprize for EVERYONE who took part…)
Thank you! Till next year…
Dear TROUBLE friends, fans and aficionados
The money kept coming and coming, so we just couldn’t stop the fundraiser!! But we had to draw the line somewhere to do the maths.And the good news is: this has been the most successful fundraiser to date:
We’ve raised a total of R 51 040 (3 170 €)!!
That is R 4000 more than last year!
A SUPERBIG THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR SUPERHERO SPONSORS!!!
The total is made up of
- R 2415 (150€) in regular monthly contributions
- As well as an amazing R 22 200 (1370€) in one-off contributions – which topped our original goal of R 22 060 (1360€).
Unfortunately, we didn’t manage to get quite as many regular commitments as we were hoping for, so we are R 3 200 (200€) a month short. But we’ve got Jenny’s accommodation and medication covered, and these are, of course, the most important points. We’re hoping that random contributions during the year will cover the rest.
So, if you still want to make a contribution, then please do! The money will be forwarded to Jenny, regardless of when it goes into the account.
Again – thank you to everyone who contributed so generously. God bless you.
We’ll be back with another fundraiser next year! Till then, have a lovely Christmas season.
All the best,
from Jenny Symons a.k.a. TROUBLE
and Yvette Coetzee-Hannemann (Friend, Fan and Funding Co-ordinator.)
