I am Jethro von Benecke, grandson to Kathleen Sanders. Kathleen is an incredibly outstanding person. She is 72 years of age, yet she continues to support her 2 daughters and 2 grandchildren no matter what. Her son passed away a few years ago from cancer, it was heartbreaking for her, yet she pushed through it and started helping other people even more.
She started a charity with her close friend in the town of Hermanus, called Just Care; an afterschool care program for the children of Mount Pleasant. She makes food and sources new investments for the charity along with the Just Care team. A fearless, kind and loyal lady. Even now during COVID-19, they continue to make food daily and deliver it to the households of the children attending the daycare. (They currently feed roughly 100 households DAILY!)
Her 2 daughters, one with bipolar disorder, each have their own lives and expenses and struggle to afford to help her. We all care and live fairly close together but paying for her rentals when her investments run out will be near impossible. We care for her so, so much and it's terribly hard seeing someone, someone who is too selfless to ask for help, suffer because she has helped others more than she could handle.
All the kids she has helped love her and are always overjoyed when she is there!
Thats why I am starting this GoGetFunding page for her, she will never be able to ask someone else for help no matter how hard her life gets. She deserves the happy ending she has helped so many others to achieve!
She is divorced and lives with her dog Sadie, but her money wont last forever. I sense the worry in her voice when she starts talking about her own future, even though she tries to hide it. I love my gran, and thinking of her suffering brings me to tears. She cannot be forced to get a job to survive at her age now after doing so mich for others
She is an incredible woman, the matriarch of our family. She never stops giving, and I think that she deserves a happy, stress-free, and easy transition into true retirement.
Any help you can offer her will be truly appreciated by me, the rest of her family and friends, and all the children she tries so hard to help on a daily basis.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and consider
