A few months ago I sent out an email to my contacts list and didn't really expect too much to happen. Here is a copy of the email -
I got a few messages of support, but mostly silence! And then it happened . . . people started emailing back, forwarding the original email and writing their own emails to gather support.
The email has been to all parts of the world and I've received donations from Indonesia, Sydney, Perth and interest from the USA and the UK and Ireland!
And now, here we are, the 26th August 2009 and the original goal of 100 bags has been reached.
100 down, 900 to go! And who knows, maybe more . . .
Please email me if you would like more details on this project at firstname.lastname@example.org
