It’s just over a week since David and John finished their very long ramble from Chatswood to Blackheath to raise money for Timor. David was raising money for the TLDP; in particular, for Ana Paula’s education in Fiji. John was raising money for Hatubuilico, a beautiful, but remote village in the highlands of TL. By the middle of his 150km challenge, David was aiming to raise $20 000, an enormous amount of money in our estimation.
HE DID IT.
As of today, Monday, November 2nd, David has raised a total of $20 485.
In a conversation at the end of last week, David humbly remarked that it was ‘just a walk’. Yet, his ‘small’ action will have large repercussions – it will help in the building of a better future for the health of the Timorese people.
Although David (plus John and many, many others) did the hard physical slog, this amazing result is a true team effort. Only with the support of our friends and donors, could David et. al.’s walk become transformative. A small thing became something great.
The TLDP is in awe of David – thanks David for doing the hard yards for us all! We are also so grateful for everyone’s contribution. We have tried to get in contact with the many people who supported David, and we apologise if we missed you. Thank you thank you thank you.
