It really isn’t often that I ask for help. But I think that this time it’s warranted.
My godfather (In the Greek culture that basically means a guardian of sorts) runs an NPO called Footprints PLAY that aims to participate in the lives of African youths (P.L.A.Y). They take care of, shelter, clothe and feed many, many young South African children. This is an incredibly admirable thing to be doing and one that I admire.
But Footprints are in a bit of a pickle and need help. Here is the email I received from Terry, my Uncle. Please, if you know of anyone who can assist this fantastic organisation please get in touch with me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Let me be straight up and to the point. HELP
Bus to transport the children is down. Engine blown or something like that.
Our options are as follows plus minus 25k to get this one on the road again that is a rebuild. We would be willing to put company name etc on the bus if we can get financial help to get it on the road. Other options if anyone knows someone in the motor industry a New bus would be great or maybe an engine for a VW Microbus 2.1 I.
We have all the necessary PBO and NPO numbers in place should anyone require them. Charity can be viewed on www.footprintsplay.co.za .
