Thank you for your interest!
Here you can find out more about Jenny’s monthly expenses and how we’re raising the contributions necessary to cover her costs. You can also find out, how you can get involved. And right at the end, you can read more about previous campaigns.
This is a list fo Jenny’s projected basic expenses for 2022:
- HOME: R11 825
- MEDICAL : R3 500 (PROCEDURES AND MEDICATION THAT MEDICAL AID WON’T COVER: CREAMS, CATHETER BAGS, STOMA EQUIPMENT. THE COST HAS GONE UP IN THE LAST YEAR AND SOME MEDS ARE INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT TO SOURCE )
- NAPPIES : R1 500
- PHONE and INTERNET : R300
- FURTHER COSTS: R 500 (FOR THOSE UNEXPECTED EXTRAS)
(ALL FIGURES REFLECT EXPENSES ON A MONTHLY BASIS.)
R 17 625 per month, or
R 211 500 for the year Dec 2021/Nov. 2022.
If you would like to contribute, please write an e-mail to fundraisingfortrouble[at]gmail.com and we will mail the info for Jenny’s bank account (we don’t want to post Jenny’s banking details online so as that it won’t be abused.)
HOW we raise money:
Of course, times are rough, especially right now, and no single person could possibly cover all of Jen’s expenses. But since 2015, we’ve been building a base of regular sponsors, who contribute small amounts every month or year – and all of those add up to keep Jenny going financially. Every year in November, we do a fundraiser aimed at both people who give one-off donations, and those who commit to a monthly payment.
INFO FOR THE 2021/2022 FUNDRAISER.
Our Fundraising Goal:
By 30.11.2020 we want to raise R 45 960 (ca. 2 640 €)
The plan is to do so by getting
- R 2 275 (ca. 130 €) per month in regular, monthly contributions and
- R 18 660 (ca. 1 072 €) in one-off donations.
In order to reach these goals, in South Africa, we’re looking for:
- 4 people who can commit R50 per month
- 3 people who can commit R100 per month
- 2 people who can commit R150 per month
- 2 people who can commit R200 per month
Internationally (from all the countries with TROUBLE fans, including Britain, Sweden, Germany, New Zealand) we’re looking for:
- 4 people who can commit 3 Euro per month
- 3 people who can commit 5 Euro per month
- 2 people who can commit 7,50 Euro per month
- 2 people who can commit 10 Euro per month
This would leave us with a little bit extra to cover transfer costs or currency fluctuation.
We ask people ( maybe you? ) to make this commitment for one year
(Dec. 2021 until Nov. 2022).
Of course, we’ll be very happy if people could extend their support beyond that, but we will check in with everyone after a year to see if that is possible.
But beside the monthly contributions, one-off donations of ANY AMOUNT, no matter how small, are greatly appreciated. Jenny has been sustained these past few years by big and small contributions made by wonderful, caring people. All of these add up, and Jenny wants to THANK EVERYONE for them!!!
If you would like to contribute, please write an e-mail to fundraisingfortrouble[at]gmail.com. REMEMBER: YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE ANY TIME, NOT JUST DURING THE FUNDRAISERS!! THANK YOU!!
