Flying around the world is not going to be easy if we have to do all the building, preparation, planning, liaising, coordinating etc. all by ourselves. Help will definitely be needed.

I have this crazy idea that I would like to identify people or organizations within each country or city that we will pass through, who can assist in the planning and organising for the team while we are passing through your area.

I would like to have some form of fund-raising event/dinner the night we stay over at which I will gladly be the guest speaker. Of all the monies raised I would like half to be paid into the Arthur Piercy Trust for Spinal Cord Injuries and the other half the event organisers can use as they see fit for any charity of their choice.

Pushing my luck even further it would be appreciated if the identified group could supply accommodation and meals for the team for duration we will be staying. This way we can minimise expenses and maximise the funding into the Trust fund. As mentioned under the Trust fund heading I would like raise a $1,000,000.00 to assist

If this is being to forward or presumptuous then I would really appreciated it if someone could let me know.

Please, if you feel you would like to assist in any manner then drop me Arthur Piercy a note and we will start including you in all our plans.

Extracts from a testimonial recieved from the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA)

"I would like to thank Arthur Piercy for inspiring us. We need to always have driven and positive human beings like him, who don't constantly dwell on the ills of the past but on the possibilties of the future" (Zola)

"To me the important points that he made were that one's life is very important and it is that indiviual's responsibility to take care of it no matter what; and that determination can conquerany obstacle" (David)

"I was humbled by his humility, determination and passion for life. Nothing can and will stand in his way and I admire it about him. He just opened my eyes to the fact that if you want to you can, all you need is determination" (Ntombi) 

"Indeed your response to a life changing circumstance certainly places you in a special class, somewhere above the rest of us. But your incredible sense of humour, your humaness - those form the bridge that allows ordinary human beings to rub shoulders with you and face their own, smaller situations, encouraged. Thank you for that." Nadia Coetzee : Director: Foreign Qualifications Evaluation and Advisory Services.
