FAULE HAUT IS ASKING FOR HELP
It’s the third time that I’ve come to Dominica within the last four months.
I’ve done some more traveling inside the country and have gotten a more clearer picture about what Maria, the latest hurricane, did to this island.
The devastation and tragedy has struck me up to the max, and I have a hard time going back to normal before I have done this:
I would like to raise some money for the Dominican kids.
First time ever, that I do a thing like that. Not that I have planned to kick the bucket soon, but I think, it’s about time to start doing something useful.
I just came back from the Seventh Day Adventist Secondary School of Portsmouth here, where I handed over 2,000.- $US to the principal of the school Carlotta Challenger and the treasurer Joseph Mc Grey.
This is part of my money which I have been saving during the last years of my work in Germany, just to give it away to people in need during my cruise around the world.
But I‘m not satisfied with that. I would like to ask you to join and donate some money for Dominica’s kids.
Kids are the future in each and every country. I’m totally in line with the politics of the Adventist Church, to build and maintain schools in „third world“ or poor countries. Education is the key for a better society and a better life. Especially if it’s a christian one. Right now the government of Dominica does not have the means to replace all the destroyed infrastructure
(e. g. From my anchorage here I can see the office building of the police station with a missing roof. Even seven months after Maria hit this island, there is no money to fix it.)
It won’t take long and the rainy season will beginn again soon in June. The school needs money to replace the hurricane-blown-away roof before then, else they get more damage done on the ground floors of their buildings through the rain.
If you donate to some charity organization – have you ever heard about how much money goes down the drain through administration and other mysterious channels? You‘d be shocked to hear how much.
Not so here:
FAULE HAUT TURNS IT AROUND AND DOUBLES YOUR DONATION !
This is how:
For each dollar or euro you donate, Faule Haut will double your donation.
If you donate 10 dollars, I will add the same amount and donate 10 more dollars as well.
I will limit my donation all together at 1,000.- € (about 1,200.- $US)
All donations will go directly to the school, Not a Cent will get lost in administrative channels.
So, please before you click on the “Like” button, make a donation.
I do have the bank account number from the school but I found out that the fees for international money transfer (from Europe to Dominica) is immense. The fees for your single transfer might exceed the amount you donate.
Therefore I will collect your donations on my German Account. Beginning of May I will then transfer all together to the schools account. This way I only have to pay the transfer fee once.
So please, European donors, make your donation to this account:
DE60 xxxx xxxx xxxx xx
Mark it with „Hurricane Donation“
American or any non European donors might better send it directly to the school‘s account,
Dominican Seventh Day Adventist Secondary School, which is this one:
Acc. No. 00000000
National Bank of Dominica
Remember – your donation will be doubled. You’ll never get that chance again.
I know it takes some time but, please, interrupt your FACEBOOK SESSION, start you homebanking program and help the kids of Dominica. It only takes five minutes.
All your donations that come in before May 1st, will be doubled by Skipper Ingo of Sailboat FAULE HAUT.
I will let you know the results in a few weeks.
THANKS to everybody.
Skipper Ingo, Faule Haut, still at Commonwealth of Dominica
