 Christmas surprise from Africa!

The first letter from the little girl in Africa.
You might remember that our first annual tournament was won by the Hati-Hati team from STMecroelectronics. The prize was a beautiful Nespresso coffee maker.
(photo here) Since by coincidence they had recently already bought one, they offered it for sale to the other tournament participants, with double the proceeds going to sponsor a child in a developing country. The coffee maker was purchased by PBW, and HatiHati fulfilled its promise. If you visit the IBC Office Pétanque website, you can read a pdf file containing a sweet letter from little Nassuna Annet and her social worker. We are proud that the IBC Office Pétanque tournament has grown to include this unexpected facet, and will gladly publish future letters from Africa as well.
