Agree Brian it all gets a bit messy otherwise.

Nani, Nens and Bernie are working together to sort something out, I guess if Trudie joins up with them too it can all be done under one ubloonie umbrella.

G'day everyone :-)

I've had a few emails from some of you, all with brilliant ideas, thank you very much x

Before we run off and do things individually; me, Nens and Bernie have been given the task of organising something so first thing is I'd like to organise us.

We will be most powerful as one group so can I ask that you post in this thread as it helps with admin.

From the emails back from Marietjie, what's needed most is money. There are costs to the concert so that's important to get out the way first.

1. We will raise funds to help with costs.
2. We will set up a sponsorship plan, an ongoing commitment.
3. We will send care packages for each child for Christmas, starting this year.

Bernie has been busy already and received pledges of help from some 'names. I'll let Bernie tell you about that.

Concert costs? :shock: The band must have raised a fortune over the 3 days.

love jx

Lmao ... Poor BT!

Guys, ask Nens if you have questions about sending stuff to Hope Village. She has been in touch with Marietjie - the founder of Hope Village - about what they might need to have sent to them.

The Art Festival I'm involved with has Hope Village as it's chosen charity, but that's not going on until July.

If you want to do something now, talk to Nens, Nani and Bernie ... :love:

My bad...that should read 'unexpected costs during the concert'.

Jen, I can't really join the Art festival up with what what Nens, Nani and Bernie are doing ... It's something that's been going on for years, we've got a big committee here, and hundreds of people working on the festival. This is my first year as one of the organisers .. I just happened to get them to agree to Hope Village.

I'm going to keep you all up to date about what we're doing here though ... Hopefully some of you loonies will be able to come down for some of our stuff!

No, no of course not, wasn't really suggesting that you did Trudie. Great with what you're doing :love:

Not getting at you Nani or trying to sound like our Kath :laff: but the band must be well pissed if their efforts have cost Hope village in anyway. The 3 concerts were to make money for the village not to leave them with any unexpected costs. What unexpected costs?
I'm sure the Loonies want their money, donations to the auction to get straight to the children and provide them with the things they need food, clothing, sports stuff etc.

I'll get me coat I've said enough.

Congratulations, Trudie. I'm sure the festival will be a great success and it's such a bonus that you've convinced the committee to support Hope Village.

The band has opened the door for us all to move in the same direction to help the kiddies x
