Hi My Denton Douglas.
I am a volenter at Hotel Hope Ministaries on the 6th of july i will be staying awake for many many hours watching movies to raise funds for Hotel Hope Ministaries. If you want to get involved either donate some cash to the cause or donate per hour that you think I will stay awake.
The Sleepy Gecko Guest House will be hosting this charity event - 'WATCH-A-THON' on 6 July 2012 from 6pm. The idea is to have 20 contestants who will watch movies until they fall asleep. Each contestant has a target to raise R1000 I'm raising mine to R2000.- by being sponsored for each hour they stay awake. These funds will be donated to Hotel Hope Ministaries. The organisation cares for orphaned, abused and vulnerable children, as well as provide support, counsel and skills development to young pregnant mothers in the Alexandra township. We would like to raise funds for Hotel Hope so that they can continue growing and provide for the people in their care. If you have any questions about the organaisation please don't hesitat to ask.
If you would like to donate monies for the event or to Hotel Hope as one off payment please click the Donate Now button on my Associate. If you wish to donate a per-hour-rate that I will stays awake please email me in order to give me the rate per hour.
