can the Just Giving widget be used to raise money for CC updates such as an ability to create multiple games and populate them all at once or new xml features?

Hi everyone!
Firstly, congratulations on successfully hitting the £600 target! Your efforts have now secured a year of education for Kelebogile!
Secondly, some of you have been asking about whether or not there are SOS Africa awareness groups - in addition to the website we also have a Facebook group which is regularly updated with SOS updates/info: http://www.facebook.com/SOSAfricaCharity
I will also make sure our SA office sends Andy regular updates to add on the Conquer Club site.
If anyone would like any further information, please feel free to email me: matt@sosafrica.com.
Thank you again for your support over the past few weeks and enjoy the awesome new map!! See you there!!
Best wishes,
Matt/Tactician.

It is great to see there are some 130+ active or waiting games currently for Africa II. We'll see in a couple of weeks if it can over take Africa in terms of average number of active and waiting games!

Ahoy Ahoy Everyone,

It's that time of year folks...grade reports and student assessments are starting to come out in schools all across the world! Our very own Kelebogile herself recently received her own progress update, so we thought we would share her progress with you all in an update!

Kelebogile received high marks in Subjects like "Economics & Management Science," "Mathematics," "Natural Science," Social Science," "Arts and Culture," and did well in a few other subjects too! Overall, Kelebogile was above her 7th Grade Class Average!

As for Extra Curricular Activities, as we all know those can be just as important as in-class schooling, Kelebogile has been taking swimming lessons and she reports that she loves swimming!

It's great to see Kelebogile doing so well this year, and I am proud to say our Conquer Club community has helped give her the chance to succeed!

Thanks for all your support and best wishes.

Out of interest, does the charity have any projects outside of South Africa?

Matt, aka Tactician, might be able to better answer that than I could!

Hi Manbungalow,

At present SOS Africa is only based in South Africa. However, as we continue to expand, we may consider to assist other African countries such as Zimbabwe.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Cheers,

CJ, I'm not sure if you were aware, but they have this thing called the internet nowadays that, no lie, lets a dude in Hong Kong interact with another dude in South Africa. Wild, I know! =)

Ahoy Ahoy Everyone,

I am pleased to bring you all another update on Kelebogile. Our very own Kelebogile herself recently received her own progress update, so we thought we would share her progress with you all in an update!

Kelebogile has continued to receive high marks in Subjects like "Economics & Management Science," "Natural Science," Social Science," and "Afrikaans." She also has improved her performance in "Technology" and "English" as well, along with few other subjects too! Overall, Kelebogile continued to be above her 7th Grade Class Average!

It's great to see Kelebogile continuing to do well, and I am proud to say our Conquer Club community has helped give her the chance to succeed!

But that is not all this update has to offer! Kelebogile also has written a letter to her supporters and to the supporters of SOS Africa. You can find it below!

show: Kelebogiles Letter


And finally, if you have any questions for Kelebogile, post them here and I'll do my best to pass them onto her!

Thanks everyone for all your support and best wishes.

Awesome, Andy!

I have some questions for her. =)

What is her favorite subject in school?

What's her favorite food?

Does she have a favorite book? If so, what is it?

I'm happy to hear that she wants to be a doctor or a lawyer! Africa needs good doctors.

Thanks for the questions, Macbone. I'll continue to take 'em for a while, and then I'll send 'em off to her and they'll be included in a future update!

Quick questions.
Does Kelebogile know who has sponsored her?
What about next year, will we get a new drive to carry on the sponsorship?

Now a quick one for Kelebogile...
Favourite sport? (Well the Olympics is on right now :roll: ).
