Now your record breaking (or not-so-record-breaking) attempts can help Kidzpositive

For those of you who have always dreamed of summiting Everest, competing in the Paris-Dakar or organising as many people to walk through a pit of hot coals as possible (thereby demonstrating the power of peer pressure in getting people to do stupid things) - now is your chance to do so.  And and least say that your ridiculous Guinness-Book-Entry-Idea was all for a good cause anyway.

Kidzpositive is now listed as a charity on www.backabuddy.co.za and you can become a Kidzpositive Champion!

So the next time you run a marathon, knit the longest scarf in the world or simply wish to commemorate a special date, register on www.backabuddy.co.za and get your free Charity Champion page which you can then link to Kidzpositive.  To contribute to your challenge or event, friends and family simply need to click on the link and go directly to your page to make a donation.  Your page can easily be shared through any social networking channel including Facebook and Twitter.

Online donations made easy - Kidzpositive is now connected to PayPal

This Monday morning is filled with great news.  Not only have we started planning our 2012 cycle fundraiser (which I think is going to be a HUGE event), but we're also launching our new PayPal button on Kidzpositive's website!

Go to www.kidzpositive.org and click on a little button that looks like this
and, HEY PRESTO, you can make a donation to Kidzpositive using your Mastercard, VISA or American Express credit cards.

A BIG thank you to all of those who put in so many hours of work to make this possible - Jason at Fountainhead Design (www.fountainhead.co.za) and Reime Van Rooyen at Kidzpositive's head office.

Thanks to ACA Threads, Cape Town!!!

We are so grateful to ACA Threads for their very practical and loyal support. ACA give us huge bags of the 'end of reels' of their special white and black thread which is suitable for our beadwork. It has been a great saving to us to have this ready supply of thread. Thank you to the staff and management of ACA who look after our needs and we appreciate your interest in the project and ever helpful responses to our requests.
