Fathers – Please Help Us

Filed under: General — harald @ 12:30 pm Wed 6th August 2008

Sovereign Sunshine, which is a charity arm of the Insurance/Finance company Sovereign, selects six charities each months and puts them to a vote. This month, Father & Child Trust is one of them. The winner takes $10,000-$15,000, which would be a huge boost for us.

Since it’s not all that well known, there’s not too many voters and individual votes actually make a big difference. Here’s the link:

If you’re not familiar with Father & Child Trust, look at .

We don’t make a lot of noise, but we’ve been helping dads for around for 11 years now. Lately we’ve been producing a magazine for new dads, which they get at the hospital when the baby is born. You can watch a video clip of an interview on TV1 Breakfast show, or here for a ‘Press’ story about the mag.

Thanks lots – Harald
