First and foremost I hope you are all well and safe during this pandemic.
My name is Andy and I am a manager at a small but very busy bar here in Johannesburg, South Africa. I have decided to start this fundraiser for my staff members. We are a strong team of six and we work on the basis of no work, no pay. Since we started the lockdown due to COVID-19 (26-03-2020), our staff members couldn't work which means that there is no income to support themselves and for some, their families in a much broader sense as a few are the only bread winners.
We don't know how long this lockdown will be and unfortunately the longer it is, the possibility of opening as per normal is a very hard concept to grasp and jobs might be lost.
As a manager, I believe it is essential to take care of the people who work hard to make your business work in the good times as well as the bad. And I do truely believe that they need me now more than ever and that is why I have decided to create this fundraiser because I can not and will not let them down in times of need.
I will really appreciate the help from all you lovely people to help my staff members to gain some sort of security back and to put food on their tables espcially for the kids.
All the procceeds will be split equally amongst our six staff members.
I wish you all the best of luck during this time and please stay safe.
