For Chad, my son!

For Chad, my son!

Personal message

Good day! My name is Cornelius Basson and I am the father of Chad Basson (19 years) a true son of this soil,who was killed one night at a 21st party on the notorious Cape Flats.

What makes his demise remarkable, was that he saved other people at the cost of his own life. Astonishingly, he didn't know any of the people that he saved!

I decided to write a book to tell people about this remarkable, innocent, brave young man and to also share with others who also brutally lost a loved one. Not to only encourage them but also to remind people to do good to others, their community, their country and even the planet (hopefully not to pay the highest price).

I have done the proofreading of the manuscript and is ready for the editing and layout phase. The quotation from publishing companies for that is R3000. Following that is the printing of the book itself. I understand it will be between R4000-R5000 depending on the amount ordered as well as the pages and request for colour pages.

So basically, it might come to the final cost of R8000. Please believe me that I do not want to make a profit out of this but just want to introduce my beloved son to others who are poorer for not knowing him!

I, therefore, appeal to your kind generosity in making my dream a reality and not to defer it.Every drop helps!

P.S.  If you elect/choose,your blessed contribution could be your down payment when the book comes from the printers!So look at it as an investment to a best seller!In addition,if you perhaps know of anyone who would be able to assist as well,kindly forward the URL of the Back A Buddy Crowdfunding campaign.

Yours sincerely

God Bless!!!
