We are happy to announce that the fourth Amira fan day will be held on Tuesday the 20th of December. It will be a day to remember for the true fans of Amira.
For those who were there in Turnhout; prepare for something like that but BETTER.
We have reason to believe that in the weekend prior to this fan day Amira will have one or more performances. That is why we cannot plan this in that weekend. If Amira performs on Sunday, then on Monday a rest for her is needed. Therefor, Tuesday the 20th. Later is no option either. Every fan should be home by Christmas, if they want to, of course.
We found a hotel having reasonable prices – Hotel Nimma | Hotel and Restaurant in Nijmegen Price for two nights (19th till the 21st) per room varies from €135 to €152. One of the organisers will be there to welcome you. Transport to and from the hotel and the venue in Herveld will be arranged. Of course, you are free to search for your place to stay but the travel arrangement is from the hotel and back.
An entry fee for the fan day will be €50 per person. For what you get, it will be worth every penny.
On May 14th, Amira, together with a diversity of artists, will bring you an online concert, for the benefit of special learning resources for youth and young adults who are dealing with a form of neuro-diverse symptoms. For example, you can think of autism.
You can watch this show at home from 18.30 to about 21.00 South African time.
Video content in words: Amira is very exited that thanks to her donors her foundation is on track for next year’s plans (2023). A big playground in Hessie and a netball tournament for the schools that have Gelukskinders playgrounds. End result: €9065.
There was and still is a lot going on around Amira and her foundation, Gelukskinders. An update.
If you want to read all about the experiences of fans who were in South Africa around Amira’s 18th birthday, we refer you to this Facebook fan group: Amira Willighagen:Fans. It is the only Facebook fan group recognised by the family.
First let me say that I do not turn a blind eye to what else is going on in this world. My thoughts are with all the families whose next of kin is never to return home… And it doesn’t matter from which country you are. So sad… But also good to see so many people from all over the world reaching out to the refugees, either in goods or money.
The foundation Gelukskinders tries to make the lives of children in the townships of South Africa a bit more happier by giving them the ooportunity to play in actual playgrounds. Now added are sports equipment for the higher grade children including a tournament in netbal for the girls and soccer for the boys. The girls go first… as it should be… and we start with collecting for the township Hessie, the third big public playground. As both are rather expensive we hope we can finish these projects in two actions this year… The target: for this Easter action is €10.000,–.
Gifts for Amira The giftsforamira system has been closed. This gift system has been abolished at the order of the family for the time being, probably completely. How unfortunate.
Formerly the birthday promotion That will be an Easter promotion from now on. This starts in week 11 and ends on Saturday before Easter. This will be a fully Gelukskinders action. This also is a decision of the family.
The birthday concert “On My Own” Gelukskinders will also jump in again with the sale of tickets for those who really cannot order via Optog. It looks like these will be gift vouchers. With a gift voucher, you can decide for yourself when you want to enjoy the show. This time we have to offer them in the presale, starting in week 10. If you want to watch this concert on the 27th-28th-29th of March and you have to order via Gelukskinders, then we recommend you to order your voucher in the presale! In week 12, we are only sporadically on-line. More about this in week 10! The concert runs for multiple days. Do you happen to live in Pretoria or the surrounding area? Don’t miss the opportunity to attend this concert LIVE. Seats are limited! Order your tickets now! Before it’s too late! You can order here: Amira Willighagen with Richard Cock and orchestra – On My Own | Seatme.
There will be NO DVD of this production! However, a CD will be made.
The calendar of this website has already been updated. Performances in March in Cape Town and of course in Pretoria – Amira’s very own birthday concert. For the group of travellers, it is important to know that they do NOT have to buy a ticket for the concert. The tour guide takes care of that. For details please go to Calendar.
