Jerseys 4 Jozi

I received a tweet from one of twitter followers, @jeffzurel, this morning about a very worthy cause.

We are going into winter now in SA and the homeless are always affected the worse.  Jerseys 4 Jozi is a non-profit organization who came up with a fantastic concept:

jerseys4jozi

There manifesto reads as follows:

The Joburg winter is tough – but so are we.
We’re also a giving, caring city,
Reaching out to one another every day.

We’re for not-so-random acts of kindness,

For spreading warmth and happiness
And believing in the power of you and me.

Because a jersey isn’t just a sum of threads,

It’s a gift of warmth,
And an essential for survival.

So we’re about quality,

Giving aid with pride,
And adding value to lives.

What we feel, we feel with heart

What we do, we do with purpose
And what we give, we give with a smile

​We believe in the cause because we care about the people of Jozi

And we spread warmth because we’re cold without it.

With some big sponsors behind them, they are able to make a little bit of warmth a reality for those in need.

They have a couple of big sponsors behind them like ABSA, Internet Solutions, Mazars and Werksmans Attorneys.
To read more or, even better, get involved visit them at http://www.jerseys4jozi.org/
They are also on facebook and twitter.
For only R300 you can get a really nice top and help someone who could never afford it.
Get involved now, you will be a better person for it!

I am a free spirit born in the Free State, 20 years to late. I am Ying and Yang. I am the girl next door who prefers daisies and peace rallies, but can just as easily rock at a rally. I love all things Latin and am sure that in my previous life (if that existed) I was Spanish. The dark side of me, however, tells me that I lived in Mother Russia. I am an over thinker par excellence , in constant search of answers to all things that makes us human. What we do and, more importantly, why we do it. I hope you enjoy my rambles and would love to hear from you. If you like it here, please come back, comment and share. If not, let me not waste another second of your time. All I ask is that you respect my space, be constructive and leave negativity at the door. There is enough of that in this world we live in and yes, in my head too sometimes. Not everything here will be liked or agreed with. Some of it will be downright rude, crazy and straight forward. Not everyone will like me and what goes on in my head, but this is my life and my space. Enjoy the ride

    1. Thus far 2724 people have been warmed. It is a long shot from where we need to be and it is being publicized on radio a lot. Hopefully many more people will see it in their hearts to participate at month end
