We need a lot of resources, both cash and in-kind, to have a successful event. There is no minimum or maximum contribution. If each person gave R50, we would be able to cover some of the many logistical expenses we are faced with. You may contribute via Direct Deposit, PayPal, Gogetfunding, by purchasing t-shirts and hoodies from our chosen distributor, or through in-kind contributions.
