Big thanks to Thundafund supporters

 

Creative Code has reached another big milestone! This week we reached our first target when we received R5000 of contributions to our Thundafund crowd-funding campaign. This means that we can now contribute to the refurbishment of our computer lab in Makhaza. AND now we qualify for another R5000 match-funding from World Design Capital 2014.

Our Makhaza lab BEFORE the planned renovations. As you can see, we need blinds, a new projector and a coat of paint.

The supporters who have donated to us are very special people who believe in what we are doing here at Ikamva Youth. Some supporters are sending us their ‘selfies’. We use Processing to send them a ‘Thank You’ from Creative Code (No Photoshop required!). This one is part of a three-frame series created for Anja Venter and Ben Rausch.

Here are the names of our supporters, we’re sending out a very special thank you to all of them. I’m humbled that so many former or present UCT students pitched in – I know that our high fees mean that current students don’t have much spare cash!
