Cape Town - Two car guards who were given a new Audi R8 by a Cape Town man earlier this year are planning to start a non-profit organisation - with proceeds from the sale of the car.

Desire Shima and Fabrice Munganga-Mugala had initially turned the R1.4m Audi R8 into a "car for good", by carving a slit into its bonnet for people to slide in donations and messages. Around the slit are the words: "A future for all" - words printed there by the original benefactor to inspire the guards.

With this money and other donations the "Future for All" team says it has helped a Philippi crèche, which looks after 35 orphans, establish a learning centre.

By knocking on doors the car guards also managed to get donations of children's books, stationery and clothing for the orphans.

The two say they have decided to sell the Audi in order to raise money to become a fully-fledged non-profit organisation.

From the sale of the car they stand to gain over R1m.  

"With the money we can help even more people," Shima said.

"The car did a lot for us, for Future for All and the people we helped but now we’re going to do more," he added.

A documentary on the many travels of the Future for All team is said to be in the making.
