Exclusive for Tsogo Students:
Win a Blackberry or a Digital Camera
Prior to returning home in September, US Peace Corps Volunteers Gary and Merideth Gaffney are raffling off their mountain bikes to children here in Mmakau. They are donating their bikes and using funds from selling raffle tickets to purchase additional bicycles which will be added to the raffle. The goal of the project is to raise enough funds through raffle sales and various donations to distribute fifteen (15) or more new mountain bikes to children in Mmakau who would otherwise never have a bicycle of their own.
Raffle tickets cost R10 with sales ending Friday August 16th, the raffle drawing occurring Wednesday August 21st at 14H30 at Mmakau Moemise Primary School, and bikes distributed to the lucky winners following week. All funds raised will go to purchasing bikes. Each 85 raffle tickets will add another bike to the raffle.
Community service is one of the principles of Tsogo Secondary School. Participation by Tsogo learners in the Mmakau Bike Raffle is a form of community service that will comply with this tenet of your Tsogo education.
Tsogo students can purchase tickets for the Mmakau Bike Raffle from the school committee selling the tickets. These tickets will be included into the bike raffle in the name of village children who cannot afford to purchase tickets for themselves. When 200 or more raffle tickets have been bought by Tsogo learners, these tickets will be put into a special Tsogo-only raffle of a Blackberry. If the number of Tsogo tickets exceeds 400, a Canon digital camera will also be raffled to the Tsogo participants. If 600 or more tickets are purchased, a secret but very attractive third prize will be added.
Please consider buying one or more raffle tickets so that a deserving child here in Mmakau might have a bike to ride. It will make you feel good and help the community. And you might just win a Blackberry or digital camera!
For more information or to donate to add more bikes to the raffle, please contact Gary Gaffney at 083-683-4203 or email@example.com.
