So, because working 60 hours a week as well as getting my PCPP disks in by this Wednesday wasn't enough of a challenge for me, I decided to do GISHWHES again this year.  Yes, I AM in fact, insane..

 

Anyway, one of our tasks is supremely amazing and well worth getting behind.  But I need your help.  As many of you who can!

 

We have created this page:

<edited as link no longer useful)

 

to help us raise money for this amazing woman's last wish.  She runs a ballet school in an extremely poor part of South Africa.  The works she does for the kids who come to her school is astonishing, but she is now been diagnosed with cancer and only has a short time left.

 

GISHWHES is trying to raise enough funds to keep the school going for a long time to come after she leaves us.  For the full story, please check out the page.

 

If it moves you, please consider donating for us!

 

 

edit: GISHWHES is over again and we raised over $250,000 for this lady and her dance school creating a number of scholarships for the kids.  Thanks to all!

Sorry guys - I meant to post.

 

GISHWHES is over for another year.  They raised over $250,000 for this lady in the end, enough for a number of scholarships.

 

Thanks to all who helped out!
