Comments by Kay Penney Pole Passion founder and R-pole
‘I first heard about the event on facebook, late on Saturday evening, just busily catching up with emails, Debbie was online and asked for help as her close friends Vicky & Emma were wanting to set up the event. I nonchalantly mentioned it to Steve (R-pole creator) who was nearby, who mentioned it would be great to donate an R-pole for a raffle, with all proceeds to the people of Haiti. WOW I said, really??? OMG that’s amazing YES YES YES lets do it.
So I messaged Debbie to say R-Pole would like to donate a brand new R-pole to raffle for the pole community, in which she replied YES YES YES !! within minutes it was on facebook and people were beginning to message and email us wanting more details. More an more people begun to donate. It was the best feeling.'
As we have all been hit by the devastating daily news of human suffering in Haiti, it’s a way we felt we could perhaps make a little difference.
