Lesotho table quiz tonight

My brother Donal and his girlfriend Celine are heading to Lesotho next April as part of a charity effort with the ISPCC to renovate a school and build a playground for kids there. They’re holding a table quiz tonight in the Spailpin Fanach to help raise funds.

Donal’s also looking for spot prizes. They have a few already and sponsors will be mentioned on their charity.ie page. I want to make it sweeter for people to help. If you run an online company and would like a link on the sidebar of this PR8 website, with traffic of almost 3,000 page views a day for a month, drop me a mail at donncha @ ocaoimh.ie (or ring me if you have my number) – we need to have the spot prize tonight, in about 6 hours time.

  • Online gift vouchers or something I can print out would be best.
  • The audience is probably not technically minded, so free hosting would be useless. An Amazon or other online retailer voucher on the other hand would be great.
  • I have three slots for your links. According to Text Link Ads a link on my site for a month is worth $275. I’m willing to sell these slots to sponsors for €100 each.

Time is running out. You have six hours. That’s 6pm Irish time, or mid-morning EST! Thanks for your help!

I’ll be there, with camera in hand of course, although I’m useless at quizzes so I don’t know who’ll want me on their team. Don’t tell anyone ok?

[…] If you can’t make it, you can still donate online at our mycharity.ie page.  Also, big brother Donncha has offered to sell advertising at a cut-rate price on his blog which gets some serious hits.  Thanks Donn!     Like he says, if you can donate some spot prizes, even at this late stage, they would be greatly appreciated.  Or if your company would like to donate directly to this cause, please see the fundraising page on ISPCC in Africa.  […]
