Everyone wants to be part of the Soccer World Cup and it is no different for the 1263 children from 22 children’s organisations in the Vaal Triangle. To make these rejected children feel part of this world event, The Vaal Region Community Chest, IFM 102.2 FM in conjunction with Ster and Vaalweekblad, would like to provide each child over 12 with a soccer jacket and children aged 0 to 11 with a track suit.
The organisers would like to invite any company, school, church or individual to help by taking hands in this huge effort. We want to make a warm difference to the orphaned, disabled, sick and needy children housed in care centres throughout the Vaal Region. The Community Chest would like to thank our loyal community partners who have already committed themselves to being part of this worthy project.
How to donate and become involved:
- Sponsor one or more children by contributing R100 per child to the Community Chest’s bank account.
- As a company or church you may sponsor┬áan organisation by providing the funds to buy the soccer jackets / tracksuits for each child.
- Organise a fundraiser in your company where employees donate any amount and sponsor one or more children. Why not hold a fancy dress or casual day among your staff and build team spirit while helping a needy child?
- Companies / schools can organise a sports event like Spinning to not only build unity in your organisation, but also raise funds for this project and sponsor a few children with money raised.
- Schools can commit to a winter day in which children can come to school in soccer outfits, paying a small amount, realising that they are contributing to children in need. The school can then sponsor a┬áfew children with money raised. Please note that for a donation of R3,000 or more towards this project, one qualifies to receive a Section 18A tax certificate. Monies thus donated must┬ábe deposited into the special Section 18A account of the Community Chest and not the account quoted above.┬á
The deadline for donations is 14 May.
