HELP’s First Fundraiser in Malawi

Dear All,

Thank you for supporting our first ever HELP Malawi fundraiser &
Dinner and Dance (in Malawi).  A few weeks ago, on Friday 19th August 2011, we had
an incredible turnout of just over 180 guests at the Sanctuary Lodge.
Each and every one of those guests contributed in some way, big or
small to what was a truly spectacular and enjoyable evening!

We would like to thank you so much for your generous contributions,
morale support, and positive publicity leading up to the day and on
the day of the event–we are so taken aback by the extent of the help
that we received and the positive feedback afterwards.

Reflecting on it now, we can tell you that organizing a fundraiser of
this size proved to be a daunting task to say the least.  I don’t
think any of us completely understood what we had signed up for in the
beginning.  However, it all proved worthwhile and we are so pleased to
inform you that we did in fact exceed our fundraising target!

This success in large part was due to the support of friends, family,
businesses and individuals like you.  Without you, none of this would
have been possible.

Now, without further ado, we are so excited to announce that from the
event we raised an unbelievable MWK1, 272,745.00, and after including
donations from overseas – HELP Malawi will receive an overwhelming
amount of MWK2, 262, 745.00!!!

However you’ve helped, please know that you have our sincere
appreciation and gratitude.  You have collectively been part of
affecting a huge positive impact on the lives of thousands of people
in and around the communities surrounding Nanthomba Full Primary
School.
