Start of the second week into our effort to give Amira a Birthdaygift to remember.

Thanks to all who already participated, the battery is charged now to complete the first step.

Common thread and the green bar: part two.

Did we, as fans, complete the first step? Let’s just say we are on our way. €720,– have been donated this far. To complete the first step and the common thread, Amira’s own “thing”, we might need another week or so. No worries, still a full month to go.

The upgrade of Promosa R-Grade playground will go ahead, without a doubt. We, as fans, can help there but Gelukskinders will fill the gap if there is any,

It would be nice to reach the second step by next week so we can reveal what precisely that plan is.

How are the rhinos Fairy and Wendy doing?

The green bar is at 92% (at this moment). Quick calculating tells me that another €48,– is needed today to complete this month effort. Tomorrow is, as you know the first of March. The bar will be empty again. ( The Kofi link)

It surely would be awesome if Amira’s patreon account is full by the end of March

The €7,– option has 41 empty spaces.
The €14,– option has 29 open space.
The €20,– option has 9 open spaces.

The rhinos Fairy and Wendy will have a bright future in the wild. Amira fans can do this.

For the various links see below in our first post. Give Amira a Birthday to dream about.

On March 27th Amira will be 17! We will not let this go unnoticed, just like in previous years.

For her foundation Gelukskinders, this will be a 5-step plan, with Amira’s own plan as the leitmotiv, which can be slowly built up into a grand plan, in the order of magnitude of that of last year.

The start is careful: The adopted playground for the little ones in the Promosa School should become a real Gelukskinders’ playground. Some playground equipment really needs to be replaced. This will cost €1500. Then Amira’s plan for an initial amount of €250.
This is the first step. Then, either the Madibeng school or the Opang Diatla school comes into the picture for a new playground.

In conclusion, in two steps, the increase of the maintenance fund, with the super ending, a big boost for Amira’s own plan. We will keep you informed of the progress over the next few weeks.

Should the goals be achieved, then Gelukskinders and Amira can look further ahead, beyond the city limits of Potchefstroom, and many more playgrounds.

Gelukskinders has placed an item for this in the webshop.

For those who haven’t seen the streaming concert of Amira, she has also volunteered to become an ambassador for, now still small, rhinos – Fairy and Wendy. The rhinos are at risk of extinction. The intention is to return both rhinos to their natural habitat once they are larger.
Here too you can help if you want. This can be done via the following options:

Amira Willighagen’s Patreon fund-raiser for Fairy and Wendy, the rhinos. For this option you need to register to make a donation. You can choose between €7, €14 or €20. You must unsubscribe if you only want to do this once. DO NOT FORGET!

A slightly simpler option is this: Milk for Fairy the rhino.
Only one option of €3, multiple times this amount is also allowed.

Gelukskinders cannot post an item for this purpose, even if they would like to. You will have to arrange this yourself. As fans, can we “overflow” the green bar on this account? However, we cannot say exactly how much is being donated there. The bar goes up to €600 per month. Everything over it is shown as a percentage.

This birthday promotion will of course run until Amira’s birthday, March 27th.

We will keep you informed of the progress every week.
