The fundraising, which was organized by Stephanie Reed, Free Lance Grant Writer and Fundraiser at the Nature Foundation, generated significant revenue which will allow the Nature Foundation to expand its After School and in-school Nature Education Programs.

"One of our main tasks here at the Nature Foundation is to generate awareness and interests in the environment for the youth in order to instil pride in their local environment. In the past we ran our after school activity program on a shoestring budget but now, through the generous donation of the business community, we will be able to broaden our programs and offer them more sustainably," commented Tadzio Bervoets, Nature Foundation Manager.

The Board and staff would like to give express their sincerest thanks to all those who were involved in the Nature Foundation, particularly the local band Orange Grove, who have supported the program to the fullest and who have generously offered to extend 10% of their merchandise sale towards the Nature Foundation Youth Program. The Nature Foundation would also like to thank F.K.G. Marine Rigging & Fabricating N.V.
