A busy fundraising year

It is has been a busy fundraising year for Kidlinks back in Madison, Wisconsin. Starting with their Annual Plant Sale in spring, the Garage Sale in summer, and recently the Harvest Fundraiser hosted by a Kidlinks board member, Joe Bartol. Loyal donors turned out to bid on auction items and everything was sold, including a trip for four to South Africa for R40 500!
Their long-term goal is to set up a scholarship fund to help motivated students with their education costs so this money will be a great start towards that fund. In addition, Kidlinks is working with the University of Wisconsin to arrange a student internship programme to South Africa. It is hoped that they will select the first student to work with Ingrid at Ratang Bana sometime in 2018.
