Thank you and nearly there!
Yesterday at the Morisset Shopping Square I did my time to help prevent youth crime. What was supposed to be an hour behind bars, turned out to be closer to two hours. I'm not 100% sure why they were happy to keep me in there longer than I should have been?
I'd estimate 80 to 90% of the people who walked past were happy to drop some coins and notes into my bucket while I was locked up, and about a similar percentage suggested to Happy (the Police Officer guarding me) to throw away the key. I was bowled over by the public response, ie, the first response, not the second!
After Happy released me I spoke to Rosmairi Dawson, the Manager of the Morisset PCYC. She thanked me for my efforts and then asked how I'd got on with the online donations, as she hadn't had a chance to check the web site. When I told her we'd raised nearly $3,000, she burst into tears. It illustrated just how much your support means to people like Rosmairi and their clubs which rely heavily on people's generosity to survive and hopefully prosper.
I would like to give a huge thank you all those people whom have already dontated online. If there is anyone else who was thinking of helping, it would be great to get to $3,000, and even better if we could raise closer to $4,000. Here is the link to the web site, and remember all deductions of $2 and over are tax deductible:
Once again, a big thank you and best wishes, Brett
