Mandela Day

Mandela Day and Covid-19 Family-Packs

Your generous Family-Pack donations will go towards:
The children and families from James House Child & Youth Care Centre (Imizamo Yethu & Hangberg Community of Hout Bay)

My birthday wish would be for Covid to pack up and disappear
For us all to get a 2020 refund for this crazy year!
But there is undoubtedly a bigger picture to see
A silver lining opportunity
To give a little lockdown love to those in need
Our communities are filled with hungry hearts to feed
So if you’re with me, get onto my quaran-team
Help me with my birthday/Mandela Day fundraiser dream
To sponsor 100 kids from the James House community
Who over the past 6 years have inspired me
They’ll each receive an essential Madiba/Covid Family-Pack:
Groceries + hygiene items + winter warmer items
– plus educational material to keep the kids on track
It costs R450 to sponsor 1 child and their family
Quick math: that’s R45 000 we need to raise collectively!
So any contributions will be appreciated wholeheartedly
Please donate, share, tweet and get your crew onboard
What goes around comes around, so the real math means:
Giving back is the ultimate reward!

Mandela Day Aquarium Outing

Your generous donations will go towards:

  • 40 learners (aged 8-16) + staff members to visit the Aquarium
  • 40 learners (aged 3-8) to experience the Aquarium’s Early Childhood Development (ECD) Mobile Puppet Show
  • 80 gift bags consisting of school stationery, an educational book, winter warmers and a meal

By now you’ll know my birthday drill
Celebrating it with a Mandela Day fundraiser is the ultimate thrill
As this will be the 5th fundraising year
The kids of James House are in store for something spectacular
Instead of spending cash money on me
Your donations will take the kids on an adventure under the sea
To learn about starfish, penguins and sea urchins
And how to protect our turtles, kelp forests and oceans
In addition to this marine conservation lesson
The kids will also be gifted something special
School stationery, educational books, winter warmers and a meal
It’s the perfect upsized combo deal!
The most empowering gift we can give young kids is education
And helping the less fortunate is always the winning equation
So please dive in and EFT towards this crowdfunding
And sponsor a child for a fun and educational Aquarium outing!
