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 the 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 with that thought in mind, have established the NPC called The Charity Book. For now, the focus will be on the Western Cape, we are in the process of setting up a website which will be key to this NPC - it will showcase all charities across many spheres. The aim of this website is to illuminate the good work that many NGO's do for the community and to draw attention to the various initiatives and goodwill that they provide to so many in need, be it through their work with the elderly, those abused, animals, children, disability, environment, health, sports or anything else dear to one's heart! With this database, the ultimate goal is to encourage sponsorship to the various causes by promoting awareness – of the organisation and the cause. The Charity Book NPC will also initiate many fund-raisers along the way of which registered charities can benefit.
Once loaded we invite you to look at www.thecharitybook.co.za and to register if you are an NPO/NGO/NPC so that you can be part of this exciting journey.
By sponsoring us you will help us begin to achieve our goals and we look forward to updating you along the way with our achievements made possible with your kind donations.
Thanking you in advance
