Angel Projects founder and CEO, Brenda Scheepers, has announced they are joining the crowdfunding revolution as fellow South Africans get behind their campaign in a bid to raise enough funds to provide gifts and food hampers to approximately 1500 children in townships across South Africa via the Crowdfunding website, StartSomeGood.com.
According to Scheepers, a special project is required to keep township children from going hungry this holiday season. “Township crèches across South Africa are responsible not only for looking after children during the day while their parents are at work, they are also responsible for providing them with possibly the only balanced meal they will have per day. Each December these crèches close and with that ends their support of these developing children’s most basic nutritional needs,” says Scheepers.
This Angel Projects campaign aims to provide approximately 1500 children with a food hamper to help complement their nutritional needs during the Christmas period as well as with the only gift they are likely to receive.
Crowdfunding allows many small donations to be collected towards a large, concrete goal. Campaigns on the site, StartSomeGood.com, must be aimed at creating positive social change.
“Our goal is to create a world where anyone can bring about a new future for their community,” explains StartSomeGood co-founder Alex Budak. “We look forward to connecting more change-makers such as Brenda from Angel Projects around the world with the resources they need to make a difference.”
“We are very excited to provide South Africans with a heart for change a real opportunity to do something meaningful this Christmas and we know this campaign will be great success,” concludes Scheepers.
