Default VIP re Hope Village

Sorry for making a seperate post but I wanted to make sure it would get enough attention.

People we need serious help from all you Loonies for this thing for Hope Village to work. There were numerous ideas on what we(Nani, Bernie and myself) could do but thats where my problem is: WE (= all of us, not just Nani,Bernie and me) need to pull together to make this fundraiser work.

The auction is not something Im worried about, as that is going along fine, Bernie has had some results, Paul has raised some money aswell and Michelle is about to sell something. Hopefully (and I need to speak to the organisers about that) we can do the auction at the fanfest.

But...the fanfest is in september and Hope Village needs money NOW..
So Im going to email Marietjie to ask if she has an account where we can deposit money directly, and hopefully all of us Loonies will pitch in and give what we can..i know times are tough credit crunch and all, but those kids in Namibia are far worse off than us I think..

Hopefully we (Nani, Bernie and me) can count on the Loonies!

Here's a reply from Marietjie on an email I send her this morning:

Hi Nens

Please don't stop bothering me. It keeps reminding me their are people out there that really care about my children?

The emmanuelwhk email address is very old. You can always get me on my Leo.blackberry address.

I am going to give you our bank details for payments. Please just when a payment is made, let us know that we can track the money and make sure it arrives.

Our banking details:
Hope Village Trust
Standard Bank
Katutura Branch
Acc.no. 042830168
Branch code. 08297200
Swift code. SBNMNANX

By the end of the week we will also have a place on our website for donations. Our website: Hope Village

Wish I can meet you and say thank you face-to-face.

Lots of love
Marietjie

Subject: one more question re Loonie fundraising


Hi Marietjie,

sorry to bother you again I know how busy you are but I have one more question for you.

The auction wont be until September when we have our anual Loonie-get together, so in order to get you donations before that (read: asap!) I want to put up an account where Loonies can donate right now.

After some searching on your website I came across this email adress for email payments(marietjie@emmaunuelwhk.com ) , is that a paypal account by any chance? Or do you have one as that will be so much easier as us Loonies are scattered all over the world, Europe, United States, Peru, Australia you name it.

I hope this will be the last of what you will hear from me in a while, last thing you need is a nutty UB40 fan bothering you every week!

Love, Nens
