Late last year, Hansontickets.com sponsored the creation of some ‘Hanson pennies’ which are being sold for a minimum donation of $1 per penny. In March, we reached our initial goal of $250+ and a check was mailed to HIVSA via Global Strategies for $265.
These pennies were limited to a pressing of 300 and there are approximately 60 left. For more information, check out the DONATE page on hansontickets.com, or email NgiNeThemba@hansontickets.com.
The second and final donation will be mailed out once all the pennies are gone and is currently approximately $230, which means that our total donation will be over $500!
In the near future I will be posting the letter I recently received from Global Strategies as some seemed to doubt that the money was actually going to be making its way to HIVSA, as we promised.
We are considering creating a 2nd penny for 2009 – if anyone has any ideas on (Hanson related) charities or designs – please comment!
