Promoting Friends of Pakati!

What is this for? Find out below…

Well….Next Saturday, 7th August, I will be going to an event on the outskirts of London, where I am representing and promoting Friends of Pakati.

The event is called ‘Appreciating Positive Change Makers’, and I have been invited to speak briefly about Friends of Pakati. I hope to raise our profile, and also hope to raise some funds for us.

How did we come to be invited? Well, it’s all about connections….First, I have a connection to a lady called Magdalene Lafontant. She owns the business called Nakai Skin Care – one of our sponsors – see here

Maggie knows the next connection – Auntiey Mimiey, who invited me onto her live facebook event a few weeks ago to talk about Friends of Pakati.

Well, one of the (many) connections I made from this was to the Team Caro Foundation who have also become a sposnor – read all about them here – and were instrumental in getting us invited. Team Caro’s Caroline Zimano will be the MC of the event. I will report on it all next weekend & post further updates & photos afterwards.

With the event now imminent, I have been busy getting merchandise ready to sell, and also organised the new banner in the photo at the top of this post. The newest merchandise for Friends of Pakati I can now reveal – is T-shirts!

Here is what they look like! This one below is 2XL size, the largest of the 5 sizes available. On sale now for £15 + p&p. We will have some to sell at the event, as well as some of our mugs, coasters, key rings and badges.

The 2XL fits the author well…..

If you would like to order, please email with your name, contact phone number & full postal address. Sizes available are S, M, L, XL & 2XL. Also looking at Polo shirts if there is demand for them.

Looking forward to Promoting Friends of Pakati!
