Big thanks go to PMB Roundtable 12

2017-10-04 06:01

STAFF of NGOs will agree that the burden of fund-raising is one not easily relieved, especially in these tough economic times where corporate support is less freely distributed.

As such, we endeavour to innovate and come up with practical solutions to engage supporters and bring in the necessary income to fund our work.

Sunflower Day 2017 enjoyed overwhelming support from individuals across the country.

The photos that were shared showed us how much fun people were having
with their Topes (Tubes of Hope).

We are truly grateful and would like to thank all South Africans for their support.

We would be remiss in our thanks though, if we did not acknowledge the Pietermaritzburg Roundtable 12 for its efforts in taking our cause directly to its community and exceeding our expectations with its sale of Topes.

The collective support from a group of Roundtables across the country amounted to the sale of 8 900 Topes which raised R222 500.

Without you and the support of your local community, The Sunflower Fund would not have enjoyed the success we did with this campaign.

Your support means we have additional funds to recruit blood stem-cell donors from across the country to give individuals who have been diagnosed with leukaemia and other life-threatening blood disorders the hope of life.

You have truly given expression to our slogan that “Hope begins with you”.

We are honoured that you would choose to partner with us in this way.

Anyone wanting to make a donation or register as a blood stem-cell donor can phone The Sunflower Fund at 0800 12 10 82.
