SEASON'S GREETINGS FROM ROBERT CRAVEN AND THE DIRECTORS' CENTRE
Have a wonderful holiday-time this year.
Each year we give a donation to a chosen charity rather than spend money on Christmas Cards and stamps. This year the donation will go to the Jack Cecoup School in Lusaka, Zambia.
This school works with 500 poverty-line children from AIDS affected homes; most have lost a parent from AIDS, many have lost two! All the proceeds, every penny, goes direct to the school; there are no intermediaries.
In August, proceeds from my book sales paid for concrete classroom floors to replace soil/dirt ones. This next donation will pay for the their first toilets - a pit latrine. At the moment the school has no water, no toilets, no electricity.
My blog at where-does-money-from-my-books-go talks a little about the school
and photos can be seen at flickr.com
On another note - have a look at www.bleedtheworld.com a video/spoof put together my the company my daughter works for. It is a little like marmite: some people love it; some people find it offensive.
Here's to a great 2009!
