Happy holiday memories start with you!

Do you have a favourite childhood memory of the December holidays?

For many people, the best memories are of spending time laughing and celebrating with family.   But holiday memories mean something quite different to kids growing up in our children’s homes. They’ve been hurt, abandoned or neglected – and haven’t had the happiest start in life.   That’s why I’d love you to click here now to give our kids the happy holiday that they deserve.   I’ll use your donation to keep our children happily occupied this December holiday, perhaps by going to an animal farm, or ice skating, or to watch a movie with a box of hot, salty popcorn.  

Jo’burg Child Welfare offers residential care for up to 120 children. At Princess Alice Adoption Home, 30 babies from the Jo’burg area find a loving first home with us; while Othandweni Family Care Centre in Soweto provides residential care for 90 children under the age of 18.   These children have suffered pain and heartache – and it’s only with your support that we can give them some of the holiday frills and thrills that their friends talk about.  

Your gift, made by clicking here, will also help ensure that each one of our boys and girls finds a gift under the tree on Christmas morning. And when they tear open their gift, or reach into their box of popcorn, they’ll find your love inside!   So please click here to send your donation – and give our kids the happy holiday memories that all children should have.

Thank you!
