I am so excited to be assisting with this incredible initiative again this year! Eight years ago, the team from Steyn City embarked on a journey that has changed lives: they pledged to Deliver Happiness to Diepsloot.
Since then, they have done more than simply spread festive cheer to learners at Diepsloot’s primary schools. Their deliveries of school bags, crammed with goodies like stationery, sweets, water bottles and lunch boxes, have made learning much easier for these children. In 2018, they added the gift of school shoes, which even helped keep children off the streets, as the long walk to school was made so much easier.
This year, they’re giving these special children schoolbags with sewn-in ponchos, helping to protect them against the elements and keep them warm and dry. Of course, the bags will be packed again with everything the kids will need for a successful school year.
You can help by pledging R 200 for a schoolbag – a donation that will make all the difference to a child whose parents cannot afford these basic essentials.
I also challenge you to spread the joy by tagging three Facebook friends so that they, too, can get involved in this fantastic initiative. Visit www.pledgeabag.co.za for more information and simply SnapScan your pledge, it’s that simple.
