Hi All, my name is Schalk Coetzee.I am an thirty four year old male entrepreneur with a small business living in Cape Town, South Africa.
I run my own painting company called, My Paint Pty Ltd. I employ 22 permanent staff members some of whom have been with me for 9 years +.
Due to Coronavirus and our national lockdown we are unable to work or leave our homes unless we are buying food or essentials.
Being a small business and the state of the construction industry in South Africa for the past few years I am unable to financially help my permanent staff. They are sitting at home running out of food and essentials.
These guys are like family to me and I have always been able to make plans for them no matter how tough things have been in the past. The current situation weighs heavy on my heart and I wish there was more I could do for them and their families.
I am asking for you to please help in whatever way you can. Whether it's a donation or even if you just like and share this page or video.
I will be running for 8 hours in the back courtyard of my complex to help raise funds for my staff. Running outside is prohibited during lockdown so I will run these 8 hours in a small courtyard and I encourage you to follow along as I stream this run live on Youtube.
All donations are welcome, no matter how big or small we appreciate them all.
If you are unable to donate, please spread the word and share our page.

Hi Guys , thank you all for the support yesterday. Was very emotional last night when I actually realized how many people tuned in . The live stream video on YouTube has been blocked due to the music. I will load another to my campaign and YouTube once I’ve removed
