To market to market…

January 5, 2011

In an attempt to raise raise money for Testigo Africa La Chica has been hitting the markets.  Her first market stall was at a psychic fair where she was asked to give a talk about the contrasting experiences in her life – living with the Masai in Tanzania and being a ‘normal’ lawyer working in first world countries.  Although La Chica had prepared a rivetting talk and slide show only her Dad turned up!  Not deterred by failure, she then set up a stall in the foyer of Telstra’s head office – after all, thousands of people pass through every day.  Here, La Chica was joined by Laura and David, two of her university volunteers.  La Chica had her short documentary playing on a laptop, and was selling 2011 Testigo Africa calendars – they sold three calendars over four hours.  La Chica, choosing to regard these experiences as merely a test for her determination and perseverance, tried again.   This time she set up a stall at the Nunawading Craft Market, this time accompanied by the brand new Testigo Africa banner that her talented graphic designer cousin Alli had created – what a difference!  Calendar sales and donations!
