The “Jewel in the Crown” of our Fruitful September was of course our Special Appeal for East Africa & South Asia. Despite the real lack of a critical mass of public awareness and media attention, our Appeal was a major success, bringing in €60,000 so far from our generous members and supporters. Included in that figure is the fantastic total of €3,300 raised from our Book/CD/DVD/Art Sale in Gateway. The life-saving fundings made possible by this generosity are detailed in our previous post on the Appeal.
This success brings to €76,000 the total funding committed by ElectricAid to the East Africa Food Emergency in 2017 – this includes the entire proceeds of our “Leaving Fitzwilliam” online auction. Your generosity continues to reach out and to save lives. Take a bow, one and all.
