Donate to the Khulani Special School

In the summer of 2013, I had the privilege of visiting South Africa with my partner Joan, my daughter, son-in-law and my precious grandson Sam. We had an extraordinary adventure being close up to some magnificent African animals in their natural neighborhoods.

But the highlight of the trip was when we visited the Khulani Special School in Hluhluwe. This school houses approximately 150 children with a variety of disabilities from spinal cord injury to cerebral palsy , autism and many others. The area suffers with grinding poverty, the likes of which I have never seen. Just around the corner people were selling scraps of hay they had gathered from the street or leftovers from a recently plowed field.

I am making an effort to help these children who have next to nothing. All the royalties from my latest book are going to the Khulani Special School in South Africa. Won't you make a donation to the school directly, too?

Just click on this link and make a donation through The Philadelphia Foundation using your major credit card.

The official registration and financial information of The Philadelphia Foundation may be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of State by calling toll-free, within Pennsylvania, 1-800-732-0999. Registration does not imply endorsement.
