We are not going to say too much about the organisations we are in talks with.
Everyone has a favourite organisation or cause they believe in or feeling strongly about. We cannot please everyone and we cannot work with all organisations.
We have two centres. One in the East Rand and one in the West Rand. So we decided that this is where we will focus.
We are in the people business: With a strong focus on youth and that is why we decided to focus on initiatives that will benefit children, youth, and people at risk.
We are limited in resources: The amount of money we have available will depend on the success of our ticket sales, therefore we will only be able to determine the extent of how many welfare organisations we can donate to when the final tally has been made.
We have a history with some welfare organisations: These organisations will be our first go-to when we have the final tally of what we can spend. Organisations that have assisted us with our learners in the past, like rape counseling, food parcels during lock down, awareness campaigns that mentored our learners, mental health support, donations for families in need etc.
We believe that ALL people should have access to equal opportunities: Therefore we will not extend our assistance to only one area of need or one people in need, but try and spread it fairly across all the people of the communities we work in.
We believe that charity starts at home: Our first priority will be to make a success of our "Make Them Smile" Project initiatives, and then we will be supporting other welfare organisations. Again it is all dependent if we reach our target in ticket sales.
We would rather underpromise and overdeliver: We are not making any promises to any of the welfare organisations we are in talks with, we are sharing the possibilities and when we hit target or overshoot on our target, we will bless them with more than expected.
What we do promise you is that we will work with organisations that are above approach and that we will ensure that we donate or invest in organisations that are transparent in their dealings.
We will also publish a report showing how every cent was utilised or donated at the end of this sweepstake. A report audited by a reputable financial firm.
The report will also disclose every organisation we have worked with and donated money to, including the families & learners we have supported with our "Make Them Smile" Project.
