Martin Luther once famously quoted “I have a dream” and whilst his dream was based on his vision of greater tolerance and rights, I too have a dream and one which I am excitedly putting into place.
They say the difference between one’s dream and reality is the action one takes to make it real. My dream or ultimate goal is to establish a residence for folk who were struck by unfortunate circumstances e.g. a stroke or similar and who do not have a support base at home and have therefore come to rely solely on their grant stipend in order to survive. Those who were and are still capable of giving back and being independent but cannot find the niche that allows them the freedom and ability to express themselves in a world where it is already hard to survive – that is my dream. To create a place where they can once more have the dignity they deserve and to become more of the person that they once were.
Whilst we work towards fulfilling that goal we are determined to also make a difference in the lives of as many as we can along the way and have established the NPC called The Charity Book. The focus and mantra of The Charity Book is to Grant one Wish List at a Time! We will be doing fund-raising in order to deliver on this. Our focus is on the Western Cape and we will be heading into as many towns as we can – to learn more about the people and its communities and to assist registered charities in making their day to day lives easier by granting them their wish lists.
To register on the site you will just need to fill out the required details by clicking on the register as a charity or vendor link on the home page. There will be a brief form where you can upload your logo or photograph and submit.
If you are a vendor and would like to advertise your company you can choose the vendor option – calling all local entrepreneurs to make use of the option
Note – there is no cost to register on this site – thank you! This platform is to make charities more visible to corporates and individuals.
” Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice. It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life “
