Just giving …

2016-07-27 06:00

SOMETIMES we need to shift our focus off our own familiar path. We need to take time to spotlight another need that is greater than our own.

Graham Castle-Ward lives in the United Kingdom. He posted last week: “Doing three triathlons over the summer and hope to raise £1 000 and raise awareness for the Red House Project.”

The Red House Project was conceptualised almost four years ago. It grew out of a desire to assist children who are orphaned and abandoned. All the money raised by this charity goes to organisations which assist children. The project has built a house in an orphanage and raised close to R100 000 for charity.

We are overwhelmed and moved by Graham's initiative to support our charitable cause. If you would like to support Graham go to crowd funding.justgiving.com where you can make a donation. Thank you for your selflessness.
