- We have had such an amazing response from people and companies in such a short period of time that we have decided to raise our target! We now hope to double the amont raised for the Indigo Foundation and make a HUGE $10,000.
- The Indigo Foundation has many projects on the go at the moment, all of which are at different stages in their development. Each project is initiated and run by the local communities themselves and although members of the Indigo Foundation help from their base regularly, they are only on location to see the progress roughly once a year. This allows the communities who are in need of the development to make the changes themselves, and the changes they really need. It's a fantastic process that doesn't involve simply throwing money in the rough direction and hoping for the best! Please click on the link to the right to find out more about this great cause.
