The main purpose of this Knysna page and associated websites would be diluted, no matter how large they’ve become, if there aren’t volunteers (writers, kids trips, court supporters etc.) and donators. Long-term readers will already know what this is all about.
For newcomers, please view my/our sites such as:
I cannot shoulder this workload alone, particularly with the court cases i’m facing which are only worthwhile if you are truly seeking the truth too. As some of you will recall, how and if to continue have long been questions battling my brain and spirit.
Additionally, i’m always asked for help with other people’s problems and causes but few pass it on or help here – it’s impractical doing this alone. I’ve given you almost every day of the past 4 years of my life and want this to be together from now on. If not, then i need to focus on what i can do 100% rather than splitting myself between so many things.
- I’m seeking 50 volunteers, preferably those with cars or with PC & writing skills. It may sound like a lot but it’s actually quite small considering how many subscribers there are here and on Facebook, the larger amount that these posts reach and the number of people living in Knysna.
- I also seek 100 donators who are prepared to put in R50-200 each month for a year (how it will be spent will be explained before receiving such and all will be accountable to them).
I’m unfortunately too accustomed to people standing on the sidelines so realise that my hope here may fail…but i can hope. Additionally, i’m going to make it more challenging in that i want these people to be counted i.e. no anonymous supporters. People who hide do not help Knysna. Yes, a TALL order… but, again, i can hope. You need to stand up for yourself and others who are prepared to do the same.
As said last year, if i put most on Pause or Stop, i will still finish blogged promises and the court cases, just not take on anything new. It would be a gradual slowdown online with occasional updates on LEGAL MATTERS WHICH WILL, INSTEAD, TAKE UP MOST OF MY TIME. I don’t want to be reliant only on the goodwill of lawyers. I need to learn how to stand on my own feet in court. Hopefully there would be a few who will help me with costs whilst i do so. Outside of that, my father needs to be my prerogative.
For permanent critics (particularly those with fake profiles) and those who only pop into Facebook and the websites to be nasty, keep in mind that these places are primarily for supporters. Fair criticism and debate from supporters is, however, welcomed (not that you can comment on this topic on Facebook).
I understand that there are some do-gooders with their own causes – no need to explain why you have no time – i wish you the absolute best and success. PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE ARE THE COOLEST!
Before this, the only version of the truth in Knysna was the one you were sent by Knysna Municipality. YOU WERE DECEIVED OR KEPT IGNORANT FAR TOO MANY TIMES. Learn to question everything! Practice it. Live it! It’s your life and this is your town!!!
