Shelanti Private School’s Random Acts of Kindness Initiative – OUR DAY AT FALLEN ANGELS!
Shelanti Private School learners, staff and parents united to lend a helping hand at the Fallen Angels Animal Shelter. Learners walked the dogs, washed and cleaned and spent time with all the animals on the farm. A few lucky animals were also given a second chance at happiness as families registered for both adoption and fostering of both cats and dogs. Well done, Shelanti!

Circle of Friends Projects – Santa for Seniors 2015
A little over 7 years ago 3 friends got together and decided to put their love for the elderly into action and thus ‘Santa for Seniors’ was born. When they mentioned to their friends, family and colleagues the idea they had to bring joy and Christmas cheer to the lives of the pensioners residing at Huis Zonnekus in Milnerton, they were met with such an overwhelmingly great response that they were not only able to collect gifts for Huis Zonnekus, but Huis Ysterplaat and a few of the Communicare residents too. The concept spread like wildfire, and suddenly it was no longer the 3 friends driving the project but a larger group of friends, and their friends, and their friends…and suddenly they realised that they were part of a much larger group, a group to become known as ‘Circle of Friends’

Running a fundraising campaign is expensive, labour intensive and holds a lot of risk factors for the organisation organising it. In Tekkie Tax, a mix of the most accountable welfare organisations joined forces to do one very big campaign where you can choose whom YOU want to benefit from your donation. This is saving a lot of money and create a platform for organisations that normally do not have the infrastructure to engage in this model of fundraising.
Donating some of your hard-earned cash to a worthy cause can be a road full of potholes. Not all welfare organisations render an accountable service, and you need to make sure that you are supporting a trustworthy campaign!
By supporting the beneficiaries of Tekkie Tax, you can rest assure that they have been hand-picked, personally visited and all their credentials from shoe size to preferred toothbrush have been verified. So, in short – your donations will be treated with the highest respect and will be used to make life a better place: for people, animals and the environment! Whichever one you choose.
Casual Day is South Africa’s foremost fundraising campaign for persons with disabilities and is the flagship project of the National Council for Persons with Physical Disabilities in SA (NCPPDSA).
The South African Bone Marrow Registry (SABMR) is in desperate need of donors from all ethnic groups and mixed ethnic backgrounds.
Without financial support the work of the SABMR would come to a complete halt and bone marrow transplantation would no longer be a treatment option in South Africa.
This is why The Sunflower Fund (Friends of the South African Bone Marrow Registry) was formed in 1999. The Sunflower Fund is a non-profit organisation based in Cape Town, South Africa, with a vision to give all South Africans diagnosed with leukaemia and other life-threatening blood disorders the chance of life, irrespective of their race and financial circumstances.
The Sunflower Fund’s core purpose is to educate, recruit and raise funds to build and sustain an effective SABMR as a viable source of well-informed ethnically-diverse potential bone marrow donors so as to meet the national and international requirements and improve the chances of life-saving transplants for serious blood disorder sufferers.
Once upon a time in December 2006, an organisation called African Tails was born. Its is set on the dusty streets of Du Noon and Joe Slovo townships in Cape Town, where African Tails strives to curb the over-population and suffering of abused and neglected township dogs.
Everyone at African Tails is bound by their love for the uniquely African dog, known as Canis Africanis, frequently found in rural areas and on the streets of South Africa’s informal settlements.
