Take what you need
Acts of Kindness (A-OK) is a unique non-profit organization (NPO) that drives initiatives with other local NPO’s and citizens of the country, for the improvement and empowerment of the lives of under privileged people.
On the 5th of May 2018, we will be conducting a charity initiative called “Take what you need”, where we will set up stalls and give away clothing items, shoes, blankets and some furniture that have been donated by philanthropic individuals and caring businesses that are helping us to serve our community.
Everyday our wonderful teams of volunteers have been collecting the donated items from around the country, and delivering it to our head office in Pretoria. Along with community leaders in the area we have identified a primary school in Mamelodi called Jan Kotolo Primary School who will be our beneficiaries this year, as this area was recently effected by a flood 2 months and a number of families’ belongings damaged.
We have had a wonderful response from the school and we are now expecting 400 students and their (2+guardians each) which puts us at over 1000 people in attendance, which is 700 more than we anticipated. But we don't want to turn any person of need away.
With all our helping hands, and an increase in the number of people expected, there is however a few items we still need assistance with in order to ensure the day is successful and memorable for the underprivileged recipients. Along with new/previously loved clothing items, we also require the following:
*Preloved/new clothing items, blankets and shoes
*Hotdog rolls and hot dogs/boerewors
*Plastics for people to pack their clothes
*Canisters to boil water(big kettles)
*Buckets to mix juice
*Mugs and cups for coffee and juice
*Guest Speakers to speak about career, education, health, ambitions, or an entertainment piece
Please consider paying this act of kindness forward to us. Your contribution will create a ripple effect that will be helping members of the community who live with the harsh reality of warmth insecurity every single day.
Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
Success is inevitable when we work as a collective and demonstrate Acts of kindness.
“Question: How do we change the world? Answer: One act of kindness at a time”
