My son Dakoda, nicknamed "Red' has just been selected to represent Victoria in the upcoming Schools Sports Victoria National Hockey Chamionships in Hobart - August 11th!
The total cost for the event, fees, uniform, flights, food and accomodation is $4000.00
My capacity to generate the money needed so fast is very limited as you might imagine. So I come here in an altruistic hope that by some 'global village' miracle, together we can generate enough to send him. He has worked so hard to get to this level and deserves every chance to thrive and succeed.
I have already saved and raised nearly $2200.00 and have already paid for his equipment. Unfortunately none of the sports funding bodies will fund individuals and the ones that do, don't fund Hockey as a sport. I've also done everything to canvas local businesses etc..with much the same result ' no individual sponsorships'.
This competition is so very important to Dakoda and his Hockey career, as its is this tournament where national selectors will be viewing for the Australian Schoolboys Team ( which means corporate team sponsorship assistance if he were to make it)
So, can you help out?
$2.00 $5.00? $100?
At this point, every single dollar counts and even if we dont reach goal here, every dollar donated will go a long way towards making this happen.
I'm sorry I dont have anything to offer by way of cheeky bribes or rewards....just our grattitude and honest thanks!
We have to pay in full by July 21st so I am a little rushed in writing. If you'd like more detail, please let me know by email and I am happy to speak by phone or in email with any contributors or potential sponsors.
Any excess over the stated ammount will be sent to Doctors without Borders.
Thanks for your interest!
Go Team Vic!
