Thanks guys! Everyone has been so generous. I will PM JenB about the banking details then send a PM to each person who made a pledge so they know where to send the money ...

Heksie and I will be providing photographic evidence of all the challenges we succeeded in first though!

Thanks again everyone :gflower: :k :gflower: :k

This thread seems to have become very quiet. :think:

I am about to send my R1500 as promised but, I would also like one of the t-shirts if there are any left. Can anyone advise me if there are any and how much they cost, so the money and postage to send it to me in the UK can be added to the R1500?

I also would like to know how I can send my pledge from America so it is properly credited. Can I make payment through GivenGain?

normana53, sure you can pay via Givengain. Here is the link.

Please remember to start the reference with "VHR", then your forum name and also the project?

Thanx! :D

Well I sent R1500.00 and it took several times and kept asking questions, what State i lived in etc.

Finally after several attempts it appears to have changed the destination to Sanparks West Coast Region. :slap:


"We've successfully processed your donation on GivenGain. It will be transferred directly to the bank account of "SANParks Honorary Rangers".

Donation ID: 883242
Amount: 1,500.00 ZAR
Donation Frequency: Single
Cause Name: SANParks Honorary Rangers
Cause Project: West Coast Region
Cause Registration Number: 086 703 NPO"

The donation has on there from Missings.a.! and for "Mites go to Kruger to raise funds for our rhinos".

Can someone involved please now actually respond to this thread and tell me if they can retrieve the money and enable the money to go to the correct rhino anti poaching fund?

Missing

With thanks hopeful of a reply. :think:

Hi Missings.a!,

Not to worry! :)
We'll send a heads up to the person sorting the payments and will ask that it comes to us.

Thank you so much for your contribution!
