How does this work? Firstly..and more importantly (and apart from Karolina who literally is a spinning machine!) we are doing this for fun, but for a great cause The Starfish Foundation.  Starfish Greathearts Foundation is an international development charity, aiming to bring life, hope and opportunity to children in South Africa, who have been orphaned or made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS.


So where do you guys come in?  If you want to play waterboy/girl, come along.  More the merrier!  But we ask that you guys dig deep and help us accomplish something really great, not only for us; but for people more important.
