UBUNTU Faces $60K Loss in South African Elections

Please help the UBUNTU movement recover from the devastating financial loss in the South African elections. 

We went into these elections with a support base of close to 1 million people. These were 160,000 members of NewERA; my personal database of about 20,000, and an additional 20,000 subscribers to UBUNTU. We had a further 800,000 sms – message responses from people who said that they liked UBUNTU and our philosophy.
We therefore expected at least 45,000 votes for one seat in parliament. It is now clear from various reports, that there was gross manipulation of the votes to prevent us from reaching parliament, as this would have been very damaging for the crooked Reserve Bank. 
Our exclusion from reaching parliament means that we lose all the money spent on our election campaign, while parties that make it, get all the marketing money refunded. During the last two weeks I threw everything we had at the campaign in the absolute belief that we had crossed the entry threshold.  This has left us with a huge financial hole and loss of around $60,000 or R600,000.
This could be devastating for our young movement. So please share this with those that followed our road to the elections and resonate with our message. It is ironic that the thing that we are trying to eradicate from society is the thing that is harming us in the process - money.
Please make a donation if you can to help us recover, or become a monthly donor towards the UBUNTU movement, which will help us cover the debt over the next few months.  Click the link to make a contribution. http://www.ubuntuparty.org.za/p/donate.html
In the mean time we have gained strong support from the community and we continue with plans to turn Waterval Boven into the first UBUNTU village that functions on the principles of Contributionism.
