3rd December 2008 - Christmas is coming!
Another note to say I'm still here... looks like the university craft fair was a flop - nobody has informed me about one so maybe it's not on this year, and I don't have much to sell anyway. I have buyers for most of my products so my fund-raising total will increase by a lot soon, and we will be over the halfway mark! I do have some other products but don't have enough to add them online. If I get time I'll add some photos so you can see the extra goodies you can buy when I make more.
Go Orange for Orangutans day has come and gone and unfortunately I was not orange, because we haven't reached the JW Goes Orange fundraising mark yet. I've decided that when we do reach the mark, I will wear all the orange garb too, even though we missed the Orange for Orangutans day, so you still have just as much incentive to give (possibly more so because I will be bright orange on a totally normal day). If you don't know what I'm talking about, please click the fancy buttons below to find out more about it - the money you give on the Justgiving page will help out the Orangutan Foundation charity.
By the way, the article about me and orangutan conservation has been published! When I get home I'm going to have a look at it since I've asked for one to be posted to my door. How exciting!
10th December 2008 - TARGET - OVER HALF WAY!
I have some bad news and good news. The bad news is that I might have to put my handicraft-making on hold for the moment *sniff*. I have just too much university work to be able to make them without sacrificing my grades, and that isn't a good idea. There are a few orangutan handicrafts left at the time of writing, so you can email me if you'd like possibly one of the last ones for now. Hopefully I should be able to carry on with the product making once I hand in all my assignments or finish University.
The good news is that we've gone past the half way mark of orangutan conservation fund raising, yahoooo! There have been lots of happy pet portrait recipients, and lots of orangutan handicrafts have been bought as pressies for Christmas and Birthdays and all sorts. A big thank you to the people who have got me this far in my fund raising, it's been hard work but worth it. Now to raise the other half...
