There is so much I can say about today, and so much I want to say, but then this blog will turn into a book lol! So please allow me this “shortish” message:
365 days later, over 300 Angel Gowns, so many donations, wonderful people and happy memories! TAGI has gone from a one-time-favour to national distribution to international recognition in less than a year! Thank you to everyone of our sponsors, donors, Ambassadors, collection points, advocates, friends, family and every last person that supported, encouraged and loved us. May there be decades more!
We are fortunate to have been able to spend our first birthday doing something beautiful, and that was to help another charity. The Compassionate Friends (TCF) has their Annual National Gathering this year in the Western Cape, where I will be one of their guest speakers. They had a workshop today in preparation for their gathering. I joined them in preparations for this.
Ina, the silly one, baked us the beautiful red velvet cupcakes with our signature green in the icing – she made the decorations herself from fondant. Alta brought us a selection of other cupcakes, I brought us milktart and in between the working we celebrated!
Once again, thank you all for making us feel so special!
Eric Elronde and the TAGI team.
