[ADMIN] In case you missed the Facebook post…. TIMESHEETS have been updated!
Hello all quick update just letting you all know we are about 20km out from Leonora town. We decided to set camp out off the town. That tomorrow morning I well start the walk again and reach Leonora town around lunch time at 12:00.
Fundraiser is CLOSED!
Thank you all SO MUCH! We have massively exceeded our original goal of $6,500. Extra funds mean we can get supplies such as a SAT phone and fuel for a second vehicle. YOU GUYS made that happen!
We will be going through the donors and sorting through rewards over the next few months, please be aware some may take longer to get to than others, but we will be in contact.
Posting has slowed down a bit over the last few days due to Clinton being out of WiFi range, but we have a few special posts ready to go for you, so keep checking in and following the Walk for Justice.
This post is just a quick reminder to let you know that the StartSomeGood fundraiser will end in one week on the 10th October!
If you haven’t made a donation, get in quick! If you have, the StartSomeGood people will send you an email after the 10th letting you know that funds will be withdrawn from your nominated account.
We will give you guys another warning when we are 3 days out so you’re extra prepared.
Once the fundraiser has closed, the Support Team will make a start on sorting out your rewards. Please be aware that this may take some time, we are only a small team and Clinton is, of course, walking.
Thank you all so much! We have all been blown away by all your messages and support! We appreciate every single one of you!
Yesterday my husband Luke and I made the drive to Kalgoorlie to visit Clinton. It was really great to drive the route that Clinton walked and that we’ve all been following so closely. I thought ya’ll might enjoy my photos of the day.
“Update guy’s I’m starting the walk again where the support team pick me up yesterday and I about 40km out from Coolgardie town. I well reach Coolgardie about 4:00pm. Then I well rest up all day tomorrow to start the walk to Kalgoorlie town on Friday morning and I well get to Kalgoorlie in the afternoon around 3:00pm to set up camp at Elijah memorial to spent sometime with the Kalgoorlie mob over the weekends. Also to speak with the elders and the local around Kalgoorlie town.”
“Nyoongar elder Uncle Ben Taylor walking with Clinton and Noonie.
Laura and I caught up with Uncle Ben in Southern Cross on our way back to Perth on the weekend before young Elijah’s funeral, he bought some chocolates for Clinton and Noonie to keep their energy and spirits up. Good to see him join the walk.“
Lots of you have been asking where Clinton is at the moment, where he plans to walk to next and what the route he’s taking is. I’ve put together these timesheets for the next week and am working on adding an updated full route post for you ASAP.
As most of you know, the dates on the original Timesheet Post have been pushed back one week.
Please note that dates and places are at our best guestimation and may not be accurate and are subject to change. Clinton may decide to stop early at a different town or spend a day resting up somewhere. We will endeavour to keep you updated via the Facebook Group and I will try and do a new weekly schedule each week for you to track his progress.
Thanks for all your messages of support, we all really enjoy reading them! Keep em coming!
The Route So Far
As you can see, we’ve been extremely generous for the next week or so and it is most likely that this will take longer than we think. Please stay tuned for updates!
A warm welcome to all our new followers and a huge thank you to everyone that has messaged, shared and donated. We really appreciate this support.
Things are starting to get serious now for Clinton and his Walk for Justice. The fundraising project was carefully budgeted to ensure that we can have all that is required to keep Clinton and the support crew safe, dry, warm, fed and watered.
Behind the scenes we have a small team responding to queries, keeping The Website andFacebook updated and generating the amazing support that you are all offering but now we need your help.
It wont be long before Clinton is out of phone range and we are very keen to purchase a satellite phone to ensure that we are able to communicate with Clinton at all times. As you can imagine, knowing they are all safe and well is vital.
Our target is $6500 and we have been pledged $4030, which is absolutely amazing and we thank you !!!
If you haven’t already, please consider donating, even $5 takes us that bit closer to achieving our target. Take a look at the StartSomeGood and see what rewards you can get for your donation. Most of us have our eye on Clinton’s incredible painting, it wont be long before that one is snapped up.
Many thanks again, keep cheering Clinton on, keep sharing, keep up the support, we are so grateful 🙂 The Support Team
