Setar fundraising event with super proceeds for the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary

Aruba Bound
During the past two months telecom provider Setar has done a wonderful job for the Aruban Donkey Sanctuary: through an sms-fundraising event participants could win terrific weekly prizes. The event has generated a whopping AWG. 7.500,-- [$4188.92 USD], which is a very welcome amount, seeing that a new sanctuary is being built at Bringamosa.

The current sanctuary is a tight fit for the large number of donkeys, now already more than 130, so our donkeys has been divided over three locations, among them the private garden of a board member. By means of various fundraising events and donations we hope to be able to get all the donkeys united on one site.

Also at this time, during the final week of the Setar event, our new donkey calendar has come out; it is available for AWG. 25,-- [$13.96 USD].

And now it is time to announce the winner of the grand prize of the nine week-long Setar fundraiser: an all-inclusive weekend stay for two at the wonderful Occidental Resort: Janneke Ponsioen. Well done and pabien, Janneke!

You can still help the Donkey Sanctuary by adopting one of their donkeys. Of course the donkey will keep on living at the sanctuary; you only need to pay AWG. 30,-- [$16.76 USD] per month for the donkey’s keep. With this amount you help support the sanctuary as well as your own donkey. And you will receive a beautiful certificate and a super T-shirt and your name and photo will be posted on our website. So please call the sanctuary at 593-2933; you can also register via the website or donate money on bank account number 40.03.025 at the Aruba Bank! Just do it!
