#GIVINGTUESDAY, November 27, is a global day of giving fuelled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following the widely recognised shopping events #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Padca is hoping you will help them raise funds for a trip for the local gogos. Padca CEO Trevor Clowes says: “Many people don’t realise we are a local NPO, and we need help raising R20 000 to give our local gogos an unforgettable experience! Padca assists over 800 people in the community, and we look to take about 150 gogos on a trip to the beach. This is a firm favourite with them, it allows those who make the journey to have a day of fun.

“Being exposed to a world larger than the one which you usually inhabit, is of incalculable value and such a gift. Funding this trip is becoming harder and harder, and more costly!

“This #GivingTuesday, to make this trip happen, we need help to raise the R20 000 to pay for the transport for the day. Any donation will help, whether you can give R20 or R200.”

Padca improves the quality of life of seniors across the whole financial spectrum. They care for vulnerable seniors and their families in the KZN Midlands, both by homing seniors in their various residences as well as providing home-based care.
