“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”- Winston Churchill
On Friday the 21st of July, I visited MTR Smit Children’s Home in Port Elizabeth to donate the bags of winter clothing I collected to the home. I truly hope that the jackets, jerseys, scarves, boots and pants will help to keep the children warm during the rest of the winter months!
After my visit to the Children’s home, I visited the Children’s Feeding Trust to donate reading books that I had collected during the month of July. The second hand book store next to the offices of the Children’s Feeding Trust, sell these books to make money to feed hungry children within the community. What an amazing initiative! They also sell cards to make money for their various community feeding projects.
There really are very little things in this life that come close to the feeling of knowing that you have truly made a difference in someone’s life!
