Nursery School Makeover

We will be helping out an underprivileged nursery school that is in urgent need of renovations. We need a company to come on board and to insert a window into a dark baby room, paint 2 classrooms out and to provide small mattresses for the kids to sleep on. If you or your company can help- please let us know. We also need the guidance of a construction company on this day to make sure that we do not change the structural integrity of the building.

Help Us Collect 670 Items For Change

This July we will be collecting 670 items from our wish list to help us change the atmosphere of Johannesburg not only in July but all year round. Would you or your company like to help collect? You can also donate money towards our projects and receive a section 18a for qualifying donations. Think R67 per employee that the company matches?

Bake a cake for birthdays

Drop off your cake or cupcakes and we will use it for the birthday child's celebration. If it is a few days away, we will freeze the cake until then. Each cake needs to serve 20 children - so that all the children in a house can celebrate with the birthday boy or girl.
