~ Bandana Day 2011 ~

Today is Bandana Day at school!

Every year the Sunflower Fund organizes this to bring more awareness for the South African Bone Marrow Registry to help save the lives of leukaemia sufferers in South Africa.

At school they make a small competition out of it, to encourage the children to all wear a bandana, specially bought for this occasion. By buying this bandana part of the proceedings go to the Sunflower Fund. The class with the most bandanas will get a small prize.

Jasmine and Juliet were excited to wear one today. Last year we also did this but then I did not realize that you HAVE to wear THIS bandana, and not just one you have at home. See here my post from last year.... The girls look so much younger with their missing front teeth. :-)

With buying a bandana for yourself, you'll buy hope and a new future for somebody else!
So go out and buy a bandana if you are living in South Africa!! For sale at any PnP or BP gas stations.

Have a wonderful day! I know we will because grandpa is coming today!! YEAH!!

What a cute shot of the girls. They look like they have grown somehow since we saw them this summer!

What a nice idea for the school to do this!
