With winter in full swing, it’s time to warm more than the hearts of children in need.

The Kidz2kidz organisation, based in Claremont, is running its annual Warmth2kidz drive until the end of June.
Purchase and donate one blanket to this cause to help thaw the winter chill that is already upon us.

Lisa Levy of Kidz2kidz says their idea is to wrap these children, who are less fortunate than most, in the warmth of love and the joy of giving.
“Through keeping them warm, we can support them to reach their full potential,” she says.

According to Levy, staying warm is essential to staying healthy, a restful night’s sleep, increased attendance at school and better concentration and focus on learning.
“In the long term this programme also helps the teachers, who struggle with basic resources, to focus on laying the foundation for passionate learners who could change their own fortunes and futures,” she says.

To truly experience the power of giving, any individual, school, community or corporate company is encouraged to assist.
The process of rectifying underresourced schools relies on normal people living normal lives, from all walks of life, starting to do extraordinary things. Teaching this message to children is how it genuinely takes hold.

Levy is also encouraging groups of friends to band together to participate.
“Snuggle up and host a bring-a-blanket style event such as a movie night, a soup lunch or a coffee/hot chocolate morning where everyone brings a blanket or makes a monetary donation as the entrance fee,” she says.
“Encourage everyone to make a personalised tag to attach to the gift, or email us at and we will send you a tag.
“If you prefer to make a monetary donation you can go online for more information.”
