Dear friends, sponsors, donors, supporters and well-wishers of our school, we wish to joyously inform you that we have successfully reached the target of the annex construction fundraising campaign we launched at the end of July. We’ve made it!
As you will recall, our original plan was to raise about $1,500; however, by September 1, we had raised a total of $1,825. From this amount, $68.40 was deducted as service fees. This means, the total amount on hand for the annex is $1756.60.
Those who contributed to the fundraising exercise are Taumo Silander (Norway), Lena Marner (Sweden), Mary Smith (United Kingdom), Fredrik Hulten (Sweden), Anders Marner (Sweden), Pepperadventure AB (Sweden), Maria Nilsson (Sweden), Elizabeth Thorne (Sweden), David Turner (United Kingdom), and Per-Olof Thorne (Sweden).
We say a very BIG THANK YOU to the ten persons who made the sacrifice in contributing to this cause. We very much appreciate their humanitarian gestures and generous donations. They are some of our true friends and partners who are helping to provide education and a future to needy kids in Liberia, especially in Buchanan.
We also wish to inform you that the money raised is still with our Swedish contact persons (Lena and Anders) who are also in charge of our PayPal account. It will be sent to Liberia later. Anders has promised to pay all the fees connected with transferring the money to Liberia, including paying the Liberian bank’s service charges.
Once again, many thanks to all those who, one way or another, participated in the fundraising exercise. Thank you! Thank you! Thank You!
