Clothing, furniture, household appliances, linen, books and toys are always needed – if not by our children, then for our charity shop. We also appreciate food, sports equipment, paint and gardening supplies.
By contributing to the annual costs of raising a particular child or maintaining an entire cottage at Johannesburg Children’s Home, you’ll make a lasting impact on our kids’ lives … and enjoy a very personal and long-term relationship with the Home.
Family and friends come first, of course. But after you have made provision for your nearest and dearest, you have a chance to make a difference to other children who have enjoyed none of the benefits of a stable family life, by including a bequest in your Will.
Apply online for a free MySchool Card with Johannesburg Children’s Home as the beneficiary – our children will benefit every time you swipe the card at Woolworths and other participating retailers, and it won’t cost you a cent extra!
Visit our virtual shop and pick out basic items needed by our children. These items may not seem like much of a treat, but our kids really appreciate having personal items like face clothis, soap, body lotion and deodorant of their own.
Run a marathon, climb a mountain, participate in a cycle race – and use the opportunity to raise funds for our kids from family and friends. Or ask friends to give to the Johannesburg Children’s Home in lieu of a gift for your birthday or anniversary.
Round up the staff – or everyone in your class – and come to our Home to paint a room, tidy the garden, or organise a sports day or a party. Working together to help bring a smile to less fortunate children helps nurture a spirit of unity and common purpose.
