Helping SA - Christmas drive for needy children and forgotten elderly
We will have different parties for destitute children out of different areas and communities also for the elderly and mentally disabled adults who has suffered dramatically through this year, our aim is to give them a special day where they will have fun feel loved and get spoiled with treats and gifts, this drive also includes collecting Christmas presents for children from destitute families for Christmas day where the parents will give it to them so that the family together can have Christmas, our aim here is to make children happy but not to take that joy away from their parents and a family day,the families will have a proper meal on Christmas day, we will also hand out meals on Christmas morning to the forgotten elderly and to the homeless. There's nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and knowing Santa did not visit you once again and the feast to look forward to will be the same as always, bread or nothing at all
Christmas .. is not an eternal event at all, but a piece of a child’s memory, they will always carry in their heart. Again like last year we asked the children for their Christmas wishes, this is some of their answers:
* I would like to see what a Christmas tree really looks like not just in pictures,
* Enough bread for me and my brother
* For my mommy to come back that will be the greatest gift of all.
The fundraising will be done by asking for a R100 donation that can be collected from you or you can do a bank transfer, in return you will receive a sky lantern (symbolic of the light you shined on others by assisting with this drive) and an invoice to claim back from tax please also visit our website to see our previous Christmas drives please help us to make this one a memorable one for all. If you are doing a donation through the bank please reply to this email with your details and postal address to ensure you receive your lantern
Last year we were able to fill most of the children’s Christmas wishes, please help us to fill the wishes again this year, the gift and Christmas meal you are sponsoring will be the only gift they will receive this year these children have already missed the chance this year to receive a cake or a gift on their birthday let’s not make them miss out on Christmas as well, we can make it possible to give them smiles again. YOU CAN MAKE THIS A CHRISTMAS TO REMEMBER There is so many children when they go to bed hungry that ask themselves “ why me what have I done”, it is difficult for children to keep their faith strong and to keep on trying. We have the power to change this by showing them a little bit of love and understanding, there is a candle burning in every soul and we need to keep that candle burning.
