DSCN0134A 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.

7-779Behind the scenes we have a small team responding to queries, keeping The Website and Facebook 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 !!!
