Fundraiser extended by one week!

Dear Trouble-Troopers

You guys are AMAZING!! Donations have been flooding in, especially the last few days. A lot of it is still in mid-transfer, so we don’t know exactly what the numbers are, but we’ve definitely cracked the 45 300 Rand┬ámark.

A GIGANTIC, HEARTFELT THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS DONATED SO VERY GENEROUSLY!!

This means we have raised enough money to support Jenny through 2024 – and that is really wonderful! Thank you!!!

With that, we have already achieved our main aim. But – this year we also set out to raise money for a new wheelchair that she desperately needs. So we’re going into extra time!

We’re extending the fundraiser by one week – till 07 December.

And we’re combining it with a challenge, but more about that later….

We’ve still got about another R 16 250 to go. So, if you’ve been meaning to make a transfer, NOW IS YOUR CHANCE. And remember: No amount is too small! It all adds up in the end. You can transfer directly to our paypal account:

Paypal Account: fundraisingfortrouble@gmail.com

If you’d like banking details for South Africa or Germany, or if you want to spread your contribution out with a monthly contribution, write us at fundraisingfortrouble@gmail.com.

NEWSFLASH: for those living in Germany: the deadline for the Lucky Draw is also being pushed back to 7 December.

The preparationsare in full swing: the traditional family-recipe Pfefferkuchen dough has been resting for 2 days, so it will be ready when the serious baking begins tomorrow (at this point, a warm thank you to Anne and her Mom who are helping with the baking – and even offered their kitchen!).

So – don’t miss your chance to win one of our yummy prizes!

AND NOW ABOUT OUR NEW “WHO’S GOT THE HOTTEST WHEELS?” CHALLENGE.

The challenge is based on this iconic picture of Jenny with the numberplate for her wheelchair.

Taking your inspiration from that, we’d like YOU to show us YOUR wheels. What gives you a sense of freedom? Which wheels couldn’t you (or wouldn’t you want to) live without? Send us a picture, ideally with you in it holding a TROUBLE numberplate like Jenny’s or an “I love TROUBLE” sign to show your support for Jenny’s new set of wheels.

Here’s an idea of what we mean. This is the Black Plastic Motorcycle Gang (thank you Petrus for the amazing photo!):

The sign is missing, but you get the gist…these boys love their wheels! But do they love them more than you love yours? The race is on!

E-mail us your pics – fundraisingfortrouble@gmail.com – and we will post them on the website (yes, we know that is really old school, but we’re doing our best here…).

Feel free to pass this E-mail on to anyone who might be interested. To find out more about Jenny, her finances or the fundraiser, feel free to browse our website.

We can make it. As you all know from football, a LOT can happen in extra time ­čÖé

THANK YOU AGAIN FOR THE TREMENDOUS EFFORT SO FAR.

Team TROUBLE
