CAPE TOWN - Some kids in Rio will get to see athletes in action at the 2016 Paralympic Games, thanks to a personal donation by Prince Harry.

It's not clear how much the prince has donated to the #filltheseats campaign, but the crowdsourcing campaign has raised over $50,000.
The campaign, supported by the the International Paralympic Committee and the Rio 2016 organising committee, was launched recently to buy tickets for Brazilian children and to ensure a good turnout at the event.
On Sunday, organisers said they had achieved an important milestone after selling 1,5 million tickets for the Games.
There are, however, about one million tickets still unsold.
The Games will be launched at the Maracanã Stadium on Wednesday (7 September), with organisers saying viewers should expect the unexpected.
