    Default CT GTG 5 December 2007

    I am posting this under General to allow the "non-members" to also contribute to our cause.

    At our GTG tonight, I suggested that in the spirit of Christmas we help someone with gifts/donations to also have an enjoyable Christmas like we wish to have. Havago suggested the Have a Dream Foundation and I the Durbanville Children's Home (DHC). Fortunately they are also a beneficiary as per https://www.givengain.com/.

    I would further suggest that we all contribute towards whichever worthy cause, gifts or monetary donations and as a group hand it over at this GTG. I am prepared to collect from those that cannot attend that evening. I am sure that some of you already received a list of wishes of the DHC and we can use this as a guide - if not, I will post the list tomorrow.

    If all agree to the DCH, I suggest that we drive there as a group for the handover before the GTG.

    Comments??

    Good idea...

    ... but I am already contributing to the 4WDC (WC) toy run (and clothes) to children in the Grabouw area in December.

    Here is the wishlist of the kids at DCH. The tender folk amongst us should not read it, it will break your heart. Their main need is for kids leaving the Home now but any other donations will be welcome.

    I already collected a black bag full of clothes and will also add a few wrapped gifts.

    I just read through that list and it brings a tear to the eye.

    As I'll be relocating soon, I'm in the process of clearing up and cleaning out. I'll have a look at the list in detail and will give a lot of the stuff away to the home. My wife is into all the factory stores and we'll visit a couple and see what we can get there. I also see that some of the houses need carpets - I have two big carpets that I'll donate.

    Logistically - are we planning to drive there on the 5th and deliver?

    I want to see some on these childerns faces. Will want to speek to some youngsters may be I can offer them a chance in life a job 2008.

    I want to suggest we get together at kriges at 6 the drive in convoy down to Durbanville and do the handover. ican arrange with the tannie to have some kids present.

    On Kalaharis suggestion..... what about taking some with on the 17th to trekpad? Apparently you have to apply 3 days before the event.

    U ask, I'll organise.

    I think it's a good suggestion, leaving Krige's at 6 for the handover. I'll have to put my roofrack on - I don't think I'll have enough space for all the extra's I'm taking to them.

    It will also be good if we could take some of the kids to ou Trekpad - but it will be really bad for those that can't go, so I suggest treading carefully in this regard and try to find out beforehand what the interest will be.

    I have a further suggestion - a lot of the stuff the kids request are not that expensive, instead of just giving a cheque, rather buy some sweets, chips, cooldrink and so on, as well as toys from a factory store. There are so many factory stores around Cape Town where stuff can be had for a steal, in that way we can provide so much more for the kids.

    Your Clubbie's long roofrack will come in handy with the two carpets I want to donate, they're a bit too long for my roofrack. Don't worry, the Jeep won't suffer, it's got enough power to pull you're clubbie after we loaded it.

    Spikey me boy, are you still going to be able to provide transport for some of my donations? The Jeep is sold, and the wife doesn't want me to put the stuff on the Clio's roof...

    Ja I'll make a plan. Just going to have to watch the time though. It's going to be tight getting back from work, shitshaveshower, get to you, then get to the joll in time. Somebody tell me what's the ETA at Krige's/Kinderhuis?

    Actually Jeepster, is your motjie at home in the morning? I'm going to be in that area tomorrow at about 10am-11am-ish. Can maybe pick up the stuff finishenklaar.
