The blessing of being able to make every day Mandela Day is a privilege for only a few of us. Being able to make a difference when you can is within the grasp of every human being. We generally celebrate this ability on the birthday of a great man who was a massive advocate for the rights of the less fortunate. Nelson Mandela inspired a nation, a world and a number of individuals in unique ways.
The concept adopted on this day (18th July) is to provide 67 minutes of your time to assist those in need. We hope you will see it in your heart to choose our patients, your community… those with few days left to live. Our patients and our Hospice has a number of needs, we are also open to all and any suggestions you may want to add to the projects available. Have a look below and feel free to call and discuss with us before the day to arrange with you and your team.
Fabric & WheatWe have an amazing team of ladies who sew up heat bags which we sell in the community as a means of fundraising. The Stampkoring and fabric are key elements which are a cost of sales for the Snuggies. Every bag donated reduces the cost, and thereby makes more money on sale for the benefit of our patients! We have access to bulk orders should you want to donate a lot...R11.00
