This post is from Cinde Monsam, Director of Random Acts.
As you all know, Misha won the BiLLe Celebrity Challenge for October. This win was entirely due to your commitment to Random Acts and your diligence in voting. When we learned of the operational closing of the BiLLe Lottery, the organization that funds the Celebrity Challenge, we reached out to them with our regrets for their difficulties and made an inquiry as to the status of Misha’s win and the donation to Random Acts.
It is with deepest disappointment that I relay the following information. A representative from The BiLLe has advised that all funding for the program ceased with the 31OCT14 close and that currently all monies are with the regulatory board in Antigua. While they did not specifically say that we absolutely would not receive the donation, they certainly strongly implied it. Therefore, I believe it is safe to assume that despite your always valiant efforts to put Misha and Random Acts in the winner’s circle, we will not be able to capitalize on your accomplishment this time.
The donation that we would have received from the BiLLe would certainly have provided the needed funding for quite a number of our programs and acts. We share in this disappointment with you, but will rally to the challenge and find alternative ways to continue our mission; Conquering the world one act of kindness at a time.
Thank you always for your most generous enthusiastic support.
