Important also for fanday and concert visitors. This comes after the Christmas gift part.
This year, the Christmas gift for Amira is the sponsor deal. That item is listed separately in the Gelukskinders web shop: https://www.gelukskinders.org/shop/SPONSORDEAL-p149320449
This time no new playground, but a big boost for the maintenance fund.
In the past five years, all maintenance has been done from the general income. However, the costs for this increase as the number of playgrounds grows, 12 new ones and one adopted now, so the general income is being spent more and more on maintenance.
This is therefore at the expense of new playgrounds. The age of the playgrounds will also eventually count. All the equipment will eventually have to be replaced.
The equipment is heavily used by the children.
In order to be able to continue building new playgrounds, the realized playgrounds must be guaranteed to be maintained.
It is essential that every playground is maintained by Gelukskinders. The schools cannot take that on themselves. They have no money for that. The playgrounds bear Amira’s name, the foundation cannot afford to turn a blind eye to this very important work. Not now, not tomorrow and actually never.
Accidents happen at playgrounds, that is the case everywhere and schools are insured against accidents like that. Scratches, bloody knees, bruises, up to, unfortunately, broken limbs – who hasn’t had that kind of experience as a child or as a parent?
However, when a child is hurt as a result of negligent maintenance, it reflects directly on the foundation, including Amira. That must be prevented at all times. Regular maintenance is of vital importance!
We hope that you, as a potential donor or donor, can also see this.
A starting capital has already been set aside for this on an interest-bearing account. The interest is far from sufficient to maintain all playgrounds.
The larger the fund, the more new playgrounds can be built by the foundation.
If you want to participate in this gift, your name will appear in a grab bag. During the fan day, on November 30, there will be a draw in which various unique prizes will be drawn.
The construction of new playgrounds will continue. Many schools have already registered.
You can also participate in this Christmas gift for Amira in a different way. You can purchase building bricks during the period up to November 29. Half of this goes to new playgrounds to be realized, the other half goes to the maintenance fund. However, you will not participate in the prize draw.
Prizes won will be sent to you, free of additional costs. Photos and/or a video will be made during the draw.
For everyone, who supports Amira and her foundation Gelukskinders, we are very happy with every regular donation. Every € 5 is very important for the foundation.
At present, 10,000 children can play in a safe environment. The foundation wants to do this for even more children. Your donation is essential for this.
On the website Gelukskinders.org, there is another donation possibility.
https://www.gelukskinders.org/doneren/ Also, which is less known, you can transfer directly to the account number IBAN NL21RABO0300142315 t.n.v. Gelukskinders Foundation. Mention a sponsorship deal or a donation. A sponsorship deal is from € 10, –
Amira will receive the proceeds from this Christmas gift after the concert on December 1.
We hope that in the next five years this maintenance fund will be strong enough so that we can continue to make children happy with our minds at peace. That is all Amira wants.
Make children happy, as many as possible! Nothing more, but certainly nothing less.
Program of the 3rd Amira’s fan day – November 30, 2019.
Times are approximate.
Starting at 4 pm:
Non-stop movies. Playgrounds and music.
4.45 pm: Sponsorship draw of the winners.
5-5.30 pm: Arrival of the ladies.
6.00-6.30 pm: Dinner starts
7.15-7.45 pm: Lottery
9.15 pm: Auction
9.45 pm: Thanks to the artists.
10 pm: Closing
As you can see, the schedule is tight. Please, if you have a present for Amira and/or one of the other artists, do not expect them to open it on the spot. Marjolein and Anne may be able to, but it will be too much for Amira. There is just not enough time. Everyone deserves some attention. Amira is too polite to leave you as a giver in the cold, so I’ll just do it. Leave your name and possibly address on the present and you will receive an answer in due course.
10.00 pm REALLY means the end. The ladies are leaving. I told them they really should go, so please let them go. They have already had an exciting day and the next day they need to be in top shape again.
For fans already present: coffee, tea, fruit juices are free from 3.30 pm. Before that time, you have to pay for them.
The concert on December 1:
Anyone, who has paid via Gelukskinders.org, has received an e-mail confirmation from me.
This confirmation also indicates your seat at the concert.
Everyone is welcome from 1.30 pm.
There is a separate table for the Gelukskinders entrance tickets. It is situated left from the Warande reception.
Upon submission, or showing your confirmation, you will receive your admission tickets. If you do not have it for whatever reason, we kindly ask you for valid identification.
There are two tables where you can purchase various items. The new CIG 2019 DVD (€17,–)/CD (€15,–) will also be available there, as well as the CD (€15,–) of Touch of Class where Amira sings the duet of “Barcelona” with Rohan Dutoit. However, the availability of these items is limited. No more = no more. If you also want one or more of these DVDs/CDs, please send an e-mail to me, before October 30! These items have to be imported from South Africa, which takes time.
This way you do not have to order through the web shop, and you save the shipping costs.
As a concert goer, do you also want to go to the fan day a day earlier? There is still room, so please do send me an e-mail. The cost is € 30. For what you get in return, this amount is a pittance! About 15 people can still access it. Full is full.
A pin machine is available on both days. The foundation has to rent them and is also charged 20ct per each pin payment. So, please pay in cash for amounts under € 20.
