Personal message

Dear friends,

With humble and no expectation I come to you today with a request that carries a profound weight in my heart. My husband, Digger, an Australia living in Sodwana Bay has worked hard to create unforgettable memories for our guests and friends as a skipper .

In the backdrop of Digger's life in South Africa where the South African Rand and the Australian dollar dance in a delicate exchange, and the nature of our business made it difficult for him to see his Australian family for 19 years! …………….19 years is a long time!!
Digger missed his family dearly and also missed introducing our son to his Australian family and his nieces and nephews one of whom is his god-daughter getting married in March 2024.

A very dear and close friend heard our story and kickstarted this campaign, which we thought unimaginable, by sponsoring our family with return tickets to Australia in February 2024

Since this amazing gift we have been trying to save and raise funds to bridge the gap, to allow Digger to attend this long-awaited family reunion and wedding but have had to accept that without asking for some help it is not gong to be possible.A friend suggested we start a back a buddy campaign to help with our mission…..

Your support will enable Digger to once again hug his parents and spend time with his brother and sisters and his nieces and nephews whom he has never met, allowing him to attend his God daughter’s wedding, creating long lasting memories.

Any small contribution will breathe life into these long-held dreams. All donations you share will be devoted solely to this heartfelt mission. Family is more than the currency exchange; it's a currency of love and shared history.

We thank you for helping to be the key to this heartfelt reunion.
